Although it's sucked recently. Dubielewicz, Gratton, Moreau, Rivet, Gillies, and Boyce are some of the most forgettable Blue Jackets of all time.

So let me be the one to say, "Stop it right there!"

Frank the Bushman was invisible for us. "Fat" if I recall Burke saying.
Hainsey was marginal and replaceable.
Sanderson? maybe but something wrong with that dude in the clubhouse. How many teams did he end up playing for? 20 or 30 I think.
Malhotra never played as well as we liked him, sorry to say.

If I recall... they loosened the waiver rules a few years ago, meaning teams can protect their interests a little more, and fewer bluechips go on waivers -unless they have ridiculous contracts.
