Shvidki is not one of those players though. Make room for what? He certainly is NOT anything close that resembles any of the 'Lanche 'yutes. Trade him for something of value? What is of value that is to be obtained by a waiver-cast off?
If you pick him up off of waivers then someone else that is here now will have to be exposed. And there is no way that Shvidki would have enough time from now until the waiver draft to prove himself. If you are 23 and you cannot crack even the Florida forward top 12, how much value can you possbily have? I know that Jackass loves the waiver wire, but how many waiver players can we collect? The chaces of finding a gem on the wiaver wire is slim.
