How about Petr Buzek?



Travis Green will bring some grit to the team.



Did I see that the Rangers put Bure on waivers? Are they taking the chance that his salary won't be taken or is the knee that bad?
Micahel, and his brother Adam, were two potentia power-forwards who never really progressed much. Michael was taken 7'th overall I believe by the Oilers way back. He's a serious project, and he doesn't seem to be improving much.

Buzek would be interesting, but I don't see how he would patch up our holes.

Travis Green is in his 30's... thats a step in the wrong direction. I don't think we're looking for impact players now, and our roster is full.

And yes, the Rangers did put Bure on waivers, probably for the reasons you mentioned. I wonder if he'll be taken.

Finally, I don't like the fact that Beauchemin was placed on waivers either. I think he's going to be taken, but I really really hope not. It's hard to see a player you've just finished developing get thrown to another team. Besides, where is the 'commitment to youth' now?
