I would have waived many people BEFORE Halpern, for the simple fact that Halpern is a veteran, wins faceoffs, is on a cheap, expiring contract and has been pretty serviceable in his role, for his price. Most of all, center depth is useful.

We waived Bickel 24 hours later. Why not waive Bickel FIRST? Bickel is a lot less useful than Halpern. Why not waive Asham? Sure, he could be useful, but he also hasn't played at all this year, really, so it wouldn't be a loss. Why not waive Hamrlik again? Torts doesn't seem to love him and we have Eminger and Gilroy who are equally marginal. I just don't get why we would waive a faceoff winning guy who PKs well FIRST, unless it was a personal issue or a bad fit in the room.
