    Today's waivers:
    @LavoieRenaud:
    Waivers:
    Dziurzynski, Dave OTT
    Hoffman, Mike OTT
    Staubitz, Brad ANA
    Nilstorp, Cristopher DAL
    Gazdic, Luke DAL --6'5 -240pds
    Morin, Travis DAL
    Sceviour, Colton DAL
    Gervais, Bruno PHI
    Hall, Adam PHI
    Strachan, Tyson WSH
    Craig, Ryan CBJ
    Skille, Jack CBJ
    Goloubef, CodyCBJ
    Smith, Jeremy CBJ
    McKenna, Mike CBJ
    Porter, Chris STL
    Adam, Luke BUF

    I would be very interested in picking up Gazdic as a 13/14th forward subbing in for Thornton or to help out Thornton in certain games. He can go with all the new Super heavies in the division and can play the game too.



    That being said, I would be shocked to see Edmonton not take him as he is better (player) and younger than Steve Mac and is what they are looking for. Couldn't hurt that he scored 2 goals against them last night either. Like Peluso and McLaren last year, it looks like there is NHL level muscle on the waiver wire for the taking...

    I always liked Sceviour, but I don't think there's much room for him in this org.

    I didn't see anybody I'd want for the Bruins. if I was building a team I'd be interested in Luke Adam.

    I'd like Gazdic too but where'd does that leave Johnson? Gazdic also isn't the super heavy answer to John Scott (there's nobody Gazdic could beat who Thornton couldn't), Gazdic is a Bollig level fighter (who he's fought twice to draws) and mostly squares off against dudes much smaller than himself in the AHL (at 6'4", 240 most guys are a lot me smaller than him though). I'd be interested because he can play a bit so he could replace Thronton down the line.

    No roster space, no cap space like Dom said. Bruins aren't gonna be looking at waiver claims.

    Adam sucks now, was good in junior and his rookie pro year but he's been really ****** since getting injured.

    I like Jack Skille but B's have no need for him. Hope he lands.

    Zero cap space and zero roster spots. They actually have to drop someone just to get to league max

    Can't possibly see them picking anyone up

    Kampfer and Hunwick were both the flavour of the day just a couple of years ago, very much like Torey Krug.

    All 3 are smallish, offensive defencemen from Michigan based schools, hopefully Krug has more staying power.

    Nobody I would be interested in.

    But this is why I wouldn't be too worried sending Caron through waivers-I am not sure anyone would claim him.

    Skille is a good player. I'm surprised to see him there. Actually surprised Tallon let him go... He's loved Skille forever.

    Cap hell? He was on my trade deadline list last year with Iggy and Fleischmann.

    One of those gritty depth guys that any team would be lucky to have.

    Here's the problem with putting in a claim.

    Bruins are already at 25 players (have to count Savard until Monday when he goes on LTIR) and roster has to be down to 23 by 5 pm Monday.

    Bruins would have to claim one of these players by 5 pm tomorrow. If they do, they'll be up to 26.

    Bruins have to put any player on waivers by noon Sunday in order that they are claimed by 5 pm Monday to be down to the 23 maximum allowed.

    How do you fit that in?

    I love Thornton and people might rip on me for this but Jack Skille would be awesome with Campbell and Paille. I think it would be a huge upgrade to the 4th line. Its too bad Skille can't fight.

    I agree with the concept, but Nick Johnson would be that guy.

    I'm really happy with the depth we currently sport, so I see no need to participate in this anyway.

    I'll add a third voice for Luke Adam. Way better center prospect then Colborn.

    IMO, now is the time to place Caron and Johnson on waivers. The pickings are greater so we might not lose either.

    I'd be inclined to send down Caron; I really like Nick Johnson on the 4th line over Thornton.
    Although, just to totally contradict myself, I'd like to see them put a claim in for Luke Gazdic too. Big young kid that can fight, and Thornton is in his last year.

    Bruins should claim him ;)

    It sucks but I think they're trying to sneak him through now and then try to bring him up if there are injuries or they need him in the playoffs.

    Former 7th overall pick... Drafted over players like Anze Kopitar, Marc Staal, TJ Oshie and Tuukka Rask.

    I could see the Flames taking a chance on him.
