Well, Mike Johnson cleared waivers.

This whole waiver situation under the new CBA is quite intricate and, in better words, a pain in the ass.

I have to assume that JD and LP and co. know the new rules and foresee things like this happening. Like the Cajanek waiver snafu and this MJ thing.

It seems awfully laborious and tedious. The new waiver rules provide excellent protection for the player, but the team management has to jump through hoops just to put a roster together. Or is that loop-holes?

Well, I wouldn't quite say the Habs shut him out exactly.

1- He played with Bonk all year, see how well Bonk is doing in Nashville, without Johnson
2- Johnson got all his minutes playing the opposite teams best lines, and although this does mean a lot of time playing defensively, it also means, against lower quality teams top lines, opportunities to score against them (weaker teams top lines sometimes cheat a lot offensively)
3- Johnson went "soft" a third of the way through the year after an
injury, and although skilled, rarely played tough.

We needed tougher players, so had to let him go, pretty much replaced him with Kostopoulos.

GREAT guy, just that his value to today's NHL game is not as ggd as it was in the past.

Clearing waivers proved that.

Do wish him the best though.

Habs guy

After watching last nights game in Nash, I would end the Mike Johnson experiment. Let Glumac or Linglet show what they have.

I agree. Bring a kid up. I favor bringing up Lemtyugov. I think we need to make a statement to Nikitin and Alexandrov that we will give them a shot. Glumac is a Whitfield or a Talbot. He is a career minor leaguer.

He's playing much better with regular ice time. His time will be limited when Backes returns but I would keep him around.

Has any body else seen enough of him? We're better off dressing him than Kinger?

He really hasn't shown much. He's scored one nice goal, and he seems to be aware of his responsibilities in the defensive zone, but I'd rather have King in there, who can pretty much do what MJ does, while adding toughness to the lineup.
