The only Thrashers defenseman who could clear waivers was Garnett Exelby, and he isn't going anywhere. Plus the Thrashers do have tons of physical defenseman.
I thought Grand-Pierre had been great for the Thrashers, so I assume this has to be roster management is results of a trade by DW. There are several D I would rather have waived than Grand-Pierre, however I cannot fully judge this move until I see the trade.
Bad move by DW. Grand-Pierre was playing well and if DW needed to clear roster space by putting a player on waivers, he should of put a forward such as Ben Simon and moved Grand-Pierre temporary back to wing. Then after the deadline is over he can switch Grand-Pierre back to D can call up a forward if necessary.
couldn't u guys have traded him...he cant be that worthless...the kings is a team looking for an aggressive dman like GP...unless GP is just a realy bad and would have been a #7 on other teams...but in the games i've wathced him play he seems pretty good...whats the deal?
