What is the problem with this guy? I don't know very much about him but I'm surprised to see him on waivers.

Can anyone shed some light?
preissing is a great 6th defenceman and pp specialist on a team with a good top-end defence core. In LA, this was not the case, and he was paid much more than a 6th defenceman.

When he was UFA, teams were offering good money, hoping he could step up to a bigger role. He couldnt.
