Schenn seems like a no-brainer for Yzerman.
Can't be any worse than what we have.
yikes forgot backes is at 6m
Problem is, he’s no better than the Biegas of the world either.
Although, because of the injuries, how brittle the blue line is, and maybe just a warm body as they have a couple roster spots available, Yzerman puts in a claim.. Especially knowing Green and Daley are probably gone within a month.
Our defense is that bad, that sure, why not?
Isn't Steve Long gone?
St Louis needs the grit though
Rangers, pick this guy up. He will be really solid with any of your RHD.
I could see L.A. trying him out.
Chicago claims Seeler
Huh. I was hoping to get him to the Yotes. Will never even know if they tried, then.
Isn't that the second time this year? They are really trying to get rid of him.
It would be really interesting if the NHL announced when a player is claimed who put in claims for them.
Yes, but I don't think it's because they are trying to get rid of him. Yzerman knows full well that another team isn't going to do them a favor and claim a 35YO oft injured dman with a $4.25M cap hit.
When he was waived the first time, it was more or less a conditioning stint since him missed the end of last year, most of the preseason and the start of this year with various injuries and since they knew he wasn't getting claimed.
This time it's probably more for roster flexibility from now until the trade deadline since Mantha and Nielsen came off IR, Fabbri/Bowey and probably Perlini are day-to-day without being on IR, and they only have one guy on the roster who's waiver exempt (Lindstrom). With Ericsson cleared they can send him down on paper if they need to recall another player in a pinch. They did the same thing a couple years ago with David Booth since they figured no one would claim him.
Since he cleared yesterday, the Wings have yet to send Ericsson to GR and still have room for him on the roster. If he does go down, it'll likely be temporary since they'll need a warm body or two on D when Daley and/or Green are traded.
Fair well. Not sure he's going to get another chance.
If he "faired" well, why would not he get another chance ?
Pretty sure he’s saying “farewell” but just spelled it wrong.
Sabres placing Zach Bogosian on waivers
5M for a player who can't crack the Sabres roster most nights, I'm sure teams are lining up
