You have to admit picking up every guy on the waiver wire can't inspire a lot of confidence for the guys playing in St. Johns. Personally I think it's a bad precedent on the other hand the talent in St. Johns may be a little thinner than any of us imagine.
You have to EARN a call up. Have you seen the friggin gongshow down there? The team was terrible when the NHL was locked out and they are terrible now. The reason Chevy is plucking waiver guys is because no one on the rock deserves to be called up.

You notice how we haven't picked up a defenseman, even when we knew Bogosian was out and when Buff went down? It's because Postma and Redmond earned a promotion and proved they belonged here.
