Its not worth the gamble yet. Ottawa waited a long time before they made major moves. Its fine if we move lower tier prospects like we did with Balej, but even then theirs a limit. We cant move first and second rounders.
What if both Hainey and Hossa suck in camp? Do you give them a roster spot over more deserving prospects just because of their waiver status (must clear waivers to get sent down to Hamilton)?

Gainey will definately be keeping a keen eye on both Hossa and Hainsey during the Bulldogs' playoff run. If they compete hard and/or produce then he'll keep them over the summer, if they don't then, given their waiver status, they might just end up being fodder for draft day trades...
