Basically, it's the equivalent to sending him to the AHL.
Yea i think you're right. Since we are assigning him to another team, he would have to go through waivers and then get assigned. I'm 80% sure that's what happens.
His salary will no longer count against our cap. And since he is 1 way, he still gets his millions.

I'm glad the dude is gone, because frankly he sucks, but it doesnt give anybody the right to spit on the man. I still very well respect him and I find it disgraceful that some called Habs fan take pleasure bashing a nice man like Big George.
Exactly, his on ice performance does not affect the fact that he is a great person off the ice. You can hate the player, but don't hate the person.
