Claude Julian lost defenseman Noah Zulsen at the hands of the Florida Panthers and could lose Corey Perry and Michael Folic on an apology, but the Montreal Canadians’ head coach has indicated that these decisions are strictly relevant to management. Payroll.
However, Pieter Panthers did not hide a little surprise about the decision. True, the first round selection of the amateur auction in 2015 – the 26th choice – could not do justice to one eye in particular, due to injuries. He collected three assists in 13 games with Laval Rocket in 2019-2020.
So he believes the small action that Zulsen has seen over the past two seasons will move the interest of other teams a bit.
“We’d love to keep it that way,” Julian first began during a video conference Monday. He is a young man who has not played much in two years due to injury. Giving him a chance to regain his rhythm is an advantage for us. But unfortunately, that’s part of the job. ”
“There is no guarantee. He has not played for two years. And the teams that pick on the apology should put the players on the NHL list. He was selected by Florida. We do not know what they want to do. But these are the rules of the NHL and we have to follow them. We want him to be good, he’s a good guy.”
This frustration came overnight Blue-Blanc-Rouge’s decision to leave nine skaters unsafe. In Florida, the Panthers hired Shane Churla as a recruitment manager last November, holding the position for the previous four seasons in Montreal.
Meanwhile, general manager Mark Bergewin has put veterans Perry and Frolick on amnesty so they can find themselves at another company by Tuesday.
The two attended training camp for Hobbs after signing a one-year contract in recent weeks.
“We have no choice, Julian reiterated. We were only able to save a certain number of players due to the salary limit. Others had to pass an apology. It had to happen because of the roof.”
Hubs will visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, the opening day of the National League campaign.
