Mac I disagree with you on. He isn't a high minute player, but he does fill a role here that no one else does. If guys are getting chippy with our kids you send him out so a guy like Eager/Brown can get chippy right back and not worry about getting pounded by a heavyweight.
Wait exactly how does this save us salary? If he goes unclaimed we pay for him anyways do we not? One way contract, plus Hamilton is a two way contract so if he got send down, he wouldn't cost us anything? Now we just gained another contract on the salary cap as far as I can see.
