Hoffman Extension
 
@TravisHeHateMe: Mike Hoffman's extension looks done. One-year, two-way.

This must mean either gets called up and plays his heart out and earns a new contract or is here for this year to provide extra forward in case of injury and may be traded or let go at the end of the year.

EM showing he's still got it.

Last chance at a two way for Hoffman.

He'll be looking for one way's after this most likely.

If he doesn't make and stick with the big club at some point this season, I suspect he will be traded by this time next year. Or allowed to walk to pursue a better opportunity with another NHL club.

Doesn't he become waiver exempt after this season?

Proust 07-17-2013 01:25 PM

I think he'll out-shine a lot of "sexier" bubble prospects this year.

Yip. I see him playing ahead of Prince, Stone, and PAGEAU.

FolignoQuantumLeap 07-17-2013 02:09 PM

It's confirmed by TSN.

IIRC he's now waiver eligible. Can someone (danishh) confirm this? I expect we lose 2 of DD, SDC and Hoffman this year at some point.

Manked 07-17-2013 02:42 PM

Official.

Mike Hoffman
‏@MHoffy68
It's official. Glad to be part of Ottawa for at least another year.

Mike Hoffman is no longer waiver exempt.

This is good news, although IMO he starts the yr in Bingo. Obviously an injury callup which he did last yr & did well until he was hurt. Hopefully, he has a great yr & either we see him later in the yr or he is moved to upgrade for the playoffs.

Unless he gets claimed on waivers.

Yes, that could be another option although I would hate to lose him for nothing...

Extension?

Conacher is more proven

Trade bait?

My boy.

Hoffman cracks the lineup to start the season. Book it.

Bingo lineup? That I can certainly see.

Nah. Ottawa. It's been heavily implied that, were it not for injuries, he'd have played a lot more games with the big team by now.

HappyDude 07-17-2013 04:24 PM

To make the big team he would have to displace Kassian; an unlikely feat.

God Says No 07-17-2013 04:27 PM

I don't think Ottawa risks losing Hoffman through waivers. That's why Pageau to me is likely to start in Bingo.

Actions speak louder than implications. Last year was his best chance to get a spot on the team, far too many forwards ahead of him this year to have a chance at making the team out of camp.

Based purely on potential, I agree. But with Pageau not waiver eligible, I just can't see the team exposing Hoffman and possibly giving him up for nothing. It'd be terrible asset management.
