I think that Bitten is a bit overrated. When he was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2016 draft, he led his team with 65 pts in 67 games. Two years later, he didn't really improve with 64 pts in 62 games without even leading his team in scoring (he was 3rd).
I guess it's a sign that MTL needed an AHL d-man because Despres probably won't sign and MB wanted to stay at 47 contracts. It would be a big, big surprise if Bitten made the NHL.
