McLaren on waivers 1/30; claimed by Toronto
 
Per Dreger McLaren is (finally!) on waivers.
I'm guessing this means Demers is ready to play and will hopefully be in the lineup on Thursday.

Nice, I don't want to see many more nights of AHL defense...

Weird, I actually wanna see more of Petrecki and Irwin :-P

So i am guessing with the addition of gomez, Mclaren was surplus to requirements.

I like that sheppard will be hanging around, I am not expecting really anything from him this year, his development will be slower than most his age, but thats okay.

good luck to Mclaren in woosta!

RainbowDash 01-30-2013 12:33 PM

Not that he was useful in Woosta, but I'm glad he going back there to maybe have a chance to help.

I doubt this means Demers is ready to play, btw.

VP and GM 01-30-2013 11:48 PM

He's a project player/ role player thug at this point, send him to the AHL to play and let his contract run out.

ninetynine* 01-31-2013 02:05 AM

6 points in 23 games in 09-10 for an enforcer... hmmm. I'd take on that project if I were a GM.

TOR claims Frazer McLaren from SJ.

grizcoach 01-31-2013 11:13 AM

With both Mashinter and McLaren gone, who plays the role of the enforcer? Or is that a role of the past?

In San Jose, I hope that's a role of the past. There's no use for a player who's only NHL skill is fighting.

Clowe can fight, Burish can fight, Murray can fight, and maybe even Desjardin. No loss.

LadyStanley 01-31-2013 11:25 AM

Thanks, Fraser. Good luck.

thornton can fight, marleau can fight, boyle can even fight.

i would personally rather see those guys fight then the idiots that call them selves heavy weights.

do0glas 01-31-2013 11:33 AM

I wouldnt mind watching boyle drop the gloves again, he fights like a madman.

sharksohnoes! 01-31-2013 11:38 AM

I guess the days of players like Parker/Shelley/Gaetz are over...kinda sad.

magic school bus 01-31-2013 12:01 PM

I knew he would get claimed by an eastern conference team. There are no enforcers to fight over in the west, so it's pointless to have a guy like McLaren here.

Alaskanice 01-31-2013 12:03 PM

Those first two years at the Cow Palace, as I was learning more about the game, I came to appreciate what players such as Coxe and Gaetz were. Link became one of the biggest reasons for me to drive all the way there!!
I can't even imagine a player of his ilk playing in the NHL now.

In Worcester there's Pelech.

With McLaren getting claimed, I'm wondering if that changes DW's opinion on the Petrecki situation. Might not want to risk some team claiming him.

If that's the case then when/if Burns comes back and they need to make room, Irwin will be the one sent down because I believe he's the only one who doesn't need to go through waivers.

Which isn't great either since you're wasting Petrecki's development by just sitting him in the press-box the entire season. San Jose practices don't replace the valuable ice-time he could be getting in Worcester.
Quite the dilemma.

Nighthock 01-31-2013 12:47 PM

... why?

don't they already have Orr and Brown?

Brown is injured I think and Orr is out sick or injured as well.

Gene Parmesan 01-31-2013 01:08 PM

Odd grab by Toronto. At least he found a home. Showed promise early but stalled.

DuckEatinShark 01-31-2013 01:26 PM

I figured someone would grab Fraser. Every team needs big bodied forwards on the 4th line just to add a little toughness.

I will be shocked if Petrecki doesn't clear waivers. He's not yet an NHL caliber defenseman so any team claiming him will be forced to keep a roster player around that can't help them right now. At least McLaren can be used as a fighter....
