    I didn't even know he was on waivers. Good luck to him. Hopefully he can find the spot in Dallas that wasn't available here. Though between Seguin, Peverley, and Horcoff, I wonder if it's there.

    Dustin Jeffrey is a better hockey player than at least 2 guys in our line-up every night. Awesome.

    I'm of the opinion that DJ is actually an NHL player, so losing him for nothing is more great asset management.

    Yep. If he can get regular playing time, I think he's an NHLer.

    The Penguins continue the tradition of giving away young NHL players so that inferior aging vets can hang around and bring "experience." First, Letestu goes so we can keep Park. Last year Strait and Lovejoy go so we can bring in Eaton. Now Dustin Jeffrey goes so we can keep Glass and Adams.

    Good luck DJ. Hopefully you continue the tradition of moving on and proving to be valuable NHL players while the guys who blocked your progression here are forced out of the league within a year.

    He was dicked around with far too much here. Hope he can play consistently in Dallas.

    Glad he's gone for our sake and for Jeffrey's. He's simply not a bottom-6 option. Hopefully he finds a role with Dallas like Letestu has in Columbus.

    Did any of the insiders covering the Pens even mention he was waived?

    What a joke of a group.

    This is all nice and good melodrama, but is Despres anywhere near waiver status?

    not until after next season iirc

    I think since he signed as 18-year old and hasn't played that many NHL games, he gets 5 years. Not sure, **** is too confusing for me.

    This is the last waiver exempt year for Despres. Next season he'll be waiver eligible (along with Samuelsson). The year after next Dumoulin will be eligible for waivers. And the year after that Harrington.

    We have Kobasew to replace Jeffrey anyway. I'm quite happy for Dustin's sake.

    Watch him blossom... LOL
