If Trent Hunter can return a 4th and healthy scratch Gagne can return a conditional 4th, then Hamrlik could have returned something. Not to mention with the struggles of both our bottom pairing and of Carlson, how Hamrlik wasn't able to get another shot at playing is beyond me. It's not as if 55 and 3 were tearing it up out there. Especially given that, despite the improved play of Erskine, the 4-74 pairing hasn't exactly shut the other team down, the fact they didn't try the old Hamrlik as a vet mentor for the struggling kid routine is dumbfounding.
And it's not like we need the cap space, either. Even if we were trying to acquire salary at the deadline, there's plenty of space. And he's an expiring contract, so it doesn't buy room for next year.
Green was put on IR to clear a spot for Oleksy. This move is independent.
