Fans always think they borderline players will get picked up and it never happens. Guys like Kolarik and Haley are a dime a dozen, every team has them. Nobody needs to pick them up just in case there will be a rash of injuries. If that happens, they can be had for future considerations or at most a 7th round pick.

In addition, if you pick up a player, you have to expose someone else. Who do teams have that is protected who's worse than Kolarik? The only time guys get picked up is if they are viewed as being able to handle regular duty in the NHL, e.g., Weise, who I immediately said will get picked up.
