Top Habs Prospects?, Jaroslav Spacek Retires, NHLPA Offer, More

Good AM hockey fans.

Last night, the Hamilton Bulldogs lost 3-1 to the St. John's Ice Caps in spite of peppering the opposition net with a season-high 46 shots.

Brendan Gallagher scored the only goal for Montreal's struggling farm team.

Fortunately, although the Canadiens' lower-level professional clubs are struggling, many of their top junior prospects are thriving, including — obviously — Alex Galchenyuk and  — not so obviously — Tim Bozon.

Which leads me to this question: which prospects do you think will make the biggest impact in the next two years?

Habs and Hockey News

- Andrew Berkshire of EOTP had a weekly review of Habs prospects and players abroad a few days ago.

- The NHLPA is set to present an offer today. Over at ESPN, Scott Burnside looks at some of the worrying similarities between the current lockout and the 2004-05 conflict.

- At USA Today, Kevin Allen warns that both sides must start truly negotiating or risk disaster.
