Very imaginative name….

Ya but a popular one.
 Several AHL teams are named after their parent teams. Islanders, Pittsburgh, Boston, Ottawa, Dallas.

Canucks trade for an American and a Swede, then draft a Belarusian a Finn and three Swedes. Sure would be nice to have a few Canadians on this team.

Canadiens being criticized by the PM himself (and more importantly a lot of their sponsors) for picking a dickhead in the draft.

Quote
The Canadiens chose Logan Mailloux in the first round of the NHL draft on July 23. He was fined by Swedish authorities in December after admitting to two charges related to sharing, without her consent, a photo of a woman performing a sexual act.

Some Montreal Canadiens sponsors have said they’re reviewing their relationship with the team after the selection of Mailloux.

Desjardins Group, a major Canadiens sponsor, contacted the team on Monday to “obtain an explanation and to share our discomfort with this decision,” Valerie Lamarre, a spokeswoman for the credit union federation, wrote in an email.

Should someone be written off at 18? I give the Canadiens credit for giving the guy a chance, hopefully he will take advantage of it.

Trudeau is a woke dickhead considering some of the **** he pulled when he was younger.

Hopefully he’s worth the loss of sponsorships, corporate support and black-eye for the franchise.

The kid asked not to be drafted…. They ignored him.

Wont be a black eye if he turns out well. I take it you think people should be written off at 18. No do overs allowed.

Sure.  He can have a do-over….  You can hire him…. Maybe he can date your granddaughter….   Seems like a nice kid.  Just don’t let him near a camera when they’re together.

I wouldn’t be the one to hire him (or draft in this case) until he has actually done something to show he deserves a 2nd chance.  And I certainly wouldn’t want him around any female relatives of mine.

happened when Mailloux was a less than mature 17 years old; consensual sex but non-consensual photos taken... and then shared with his Swedish teammates - received a fine but was allowed to continue to play hockey in Sweden. As I read, the guy has been 'in counselling' the last 8 months or so. Notwithstanding actually being drafted, perhaps member squiggy could advise on his deemed suitable conditions and the timeframe before Mailloux could have been allowed to play again in Canada/U.S..

Actually you are saying he is done.

He said he didn’t want to be drafted this year until he had done something to prove himself, he didn’t say he didn’t want to be drafted at all.

Montreal is taking a chance on him, leave him in junior another year and see what happens, meanwhile, they own him. There is more at play than just sponsors and Trudeau playing politics. More important would be how the rest of the team reacts toward him. It’s a risk but they could end up with a changed person and a good player, maybe a great player because they got him at 31 because no one else wanted to to take the chance. If not, he wouldn’t be the only 31st pick who never played a day in the NHL.
