I don't understand the criticism that Asham receives. For a 4th line grinder he provides more than most. He can fight, and actually has a hell of a shot. If it's a "performance based" business, as AV puts it, why are we waiving a 4th line grinder who scored 2 goals in the post season with us last year in 10 games, with limited minutes. In contrast, our mega star Rick Nash scored just 1 goal in 12 games with huge minutes. Not saying let's waive Rick Nash, but lets put "performance" in some context.
In regards to Biron, I've never been that big of a fan. That said, we could do much worse than Biron. If it was based on "performance" than Henrik hasn't been much better than him. Lundqvist has been bombed an equal amount, and has also let up several terrible goals this season.
He should have used his words better. This is no more than a ploy to shed cap hits for players with limited roles on the team.
Hell, if it was based on "performance" Dorsett wouldn't even be in the NHL because of his IQ and discipline. In a performance based business, Pyatt, Boyle, Biron, Asham, Dorsett, MZA, Moore, etc, could ALL have been placed on waivers.
