    Probably because Holl is signed next year at league minimum. They probably have him planned in as next year's #8D. Not that it would be a massive deal, but they'd probably rather lose Marincin to waivers over Holl. Also Marincin would be better for the Marlies because he's a better defender.

    A bit illogical, isn't it ?

    You would want your team to be as good as possible.

    Why not keep the better defender, even if he's likely to sit in the press box ?

    :laugh:

    Why did you quote your own post to answer a post which quoted that post ???

    Hint: If Marincin would be better for the Marlies because he's a better defender, why would he not be better for the Leafs ?

    I laid it out in my post, Marincin isn't in the plan for next season, while Holl is. That would be why they would keep him.

    Leafs need the 125k extra cap savings for the TDL (and or to not have as much bonus penalty next year)

    Isn't the goal to be as good as possible this season and let tomorrow take care of itself ?

    Strange strategy.

    Unless Lindholm and Ozhiganov get a good portion of their bonuses. the Leafs won't have any bonus penalty next year.

    The fact they picked up Muzzin would go against that.

    How so ?

    What's the logical link between Muzzin coming in and the better defender of Holl/Maricinbeing put on waivers ?

    Muzzin has a second year on his contract at a cheap number, so they are definitely looking at next year as another year to make a run.

    I feel like we're running in circles, here.

    As I wrote previously, "isn't the goal to be as good as possible this season and let tomorrow take care of itself ?"

    A team can't afford to look too far ahead.

    Who knows what might happen ?

    A career-ending injury to one of your main pieces ?

    The goal is to win this year AND to win in future years. Keeping Holl saves cap space next year, while making the team very, very, very, very marginally worse. You do realize we're talking about Martin Marincin here?

    According to Capfriendly Ottawa's Nick Paul is on waivers. This one surprises me - maybe an Ottawa fan can weigh in a bit here.

    Interesting.

    Dallas waived two forwards this year, Remi Elie and Gemel Smith.

    Both got claimed.

    Both would then get waived within months by the team that claimed them.

    They should have just swapped Elie and Paul, Coach always seemed to never play him as much as he should have. Another in the long list of players messed up by the Ottawa system.

    Seems like a new game all the GM's are starting to play, tough on the guys that are tossed around all the time but everyone trying to save a dime it seems.

    How is that pathetic?

    Not my cup of tea, but for a guy to play 3 hours of video games on an off day or during his free time... who cares? lol

    Unless he's out of shape, missing practices, etc. Trust me, there are professional athletes doing a lot worse...

    You can't be in the gym 24/7 like some seem to think

    I mean Smith and Elie are not good NHL players. Was suprised Elie was picked up in the first place to be honest. Smith i sort of expected to get picked up but i'm not suprised Bruins waived him again and nobody picked him up either. Just not a difference maker and you're on the hook for his contract if you take him.
