huh ........gonna be claimed?
WTF EXPANSION BROS?!?!
Somebody making only 3 million isn't good enough to play on that roster?? Did he go on a cheeseburger diet over the off season or something???
Not sure he will be claimed. Teams still trying to figure out their own rosters and he does come with some salary and term.
Melnyk is hoping he can get someone else to pay that money
Don't sign bottom 6 players to high salary, medium to long term deals.
*Looks at Jim Benning*
Melnyk shouldn’t be allowed to own a team. This is purely a money move, Smith easily makes this garbage roster. What a joke.
Who in the heck is gonna play centre for Ottawa this year?
Montreal should claim him
I'm shocked he couldn't duplicate his 25 goal season where he shot 20%.
As if Buffalo needed any more confirmation that Berglund/Sobotka were cap dumps....
Isn't he a winger?
Actually he doesn’t...
Something sounds fishy here.
Time to get crack reporter Mark Borowiecki on the case.
He's played centre for most of his career but he has played left wing
That is a lot of money parked in the minors. It's not my money so whatever.
He can play both and was moved to the wing in the past to allow for others to play center. However, since we traded Brassard and JGP out for most of the season I figured he was a lock to be our 2C.
I dunno, Preds have ample cap space and obviously Zack Smith has to be better than Miika Salomaki or Zac Rinaldo or whoever lands the last F spots with Austin Watson suspended. But projecting out 2 more years is the real question. If he had 1 year left, I'd take him. With 3 years... not so much.
Kind of have too many wingers as it is.
play him at center then
He'll clear waivers. Too much term and dollars on that contract.
Get err done.
Melynk thinks he’s Charlie O from the 70’s Oakland A’s.
