    Is Ya-Yo still with Buffalo? Looks like most of "our" players have been waived BB, PAP, Reid Boucher

    Watched Cammaleri play for LA last night. Got some time on the first line and some power play time. He looked to be making a real effort. Shame he was making so much in NJ that he had to be bought out instead of traded.

    Rumor is the Flames are close to signing Jagr...hopefully that works out.

    DSP's also having a good preseason for the Caps. Figures the mules only get going after they get the wakeup call of being bought out.

    In carrying over from the last news thread

    So what did happen with the Hossa/Lupul stuff?

    I remember they were getting other doctors to examine them, but I never heard about it again for the last week or two.

    DSP seems to do well for a little while on a "new" team. He blamed last seasons suckage on an injury he said the Devils knew about, but did nothing for.

    carrying over from the other thread....

    yes, the Caps traded us MoJo for picks. The difference is MoJo makes a lot more than what AA is asking for and also no one knew that he was available. This situation is way different.

    AA is not asking for a lot of money. The problem is the WIngs have no cap space. Some team will be easily able to fit him in and offer more than Blandisi and a mid pick or whatever that guy said we should offer

    I get that he's ancient, but Jagr actually played very well for Florida last year. With a 1 year contract loaded with incentives there's absolutely zero risk.

    I'm actually baffled he hasn't signed anywhere. This is 100% judging a player by his age and not his results, because the results show he's still a very effective middle-six winger who provides possession and secondary scoring.

    EDIT: Looks like it's official. Great deal for them.

    Isles waive both Bernier and Little Gio. Hard to imagine either of them finding an NHL gig at this point.

    It's horrendous to think of how many fringe NHLers or wash outs comprised a significant portion of our lineup just a few years ago. That said, it's also a tremendous relief to see we've moved on from a boatload of these players in recent years.

    We have a logjam of LW as it is but Kerby Rychel is the most interesting name on waivers today

    Meh he's been declining for a while, Rychel is still young and is coming off his best year as a pro.

    He was indeed.

    I remember there was a rumor not long ago that we were shipping a defenseman to CBJ (believed to be Merrill at the time) in exchange for either Rychel or Sonny Milano.

    i'm not linking the wings guy to mojo trade. i'm just saying since you claim other teams could "beat that offer" for AA. then why couldn't other teams "beat" our offer for mojo? the caps didn't say hey wait thats a great offer but let me wait and call team x/y/z and see if i can create some type of bidding war?

    I think that probably was just a perfect storm of Shero pouncing on the opportunity after Kuznetsov signed his deal and the Caps just took it quickly. Realistically I don't think many offers would've been substantially better anyway.

    as opposed to sending him to a division rival? i get we aren't pushing the caps for a playoff spot but still if he helps the devils win two games against the caps this year thats a huge 4pts maybe no president trophy or top spot etc.

    just saying to quickly dismiss a "trade" because " a lot of teams can beat that offer" that doesn't really mean much. trades happen all the time that other teams should be able to match and beat.
