I hope they bother get claimed. Kenopka is better than some 4th liners in the NHL and Bochenski puts up decent stats, I think he just needs to stick wtih a team for a year or so. It can't help that he is moved so much.
33 goals and 33 assists in 35 games for Norfolk in the AHL in '06-'07. This guy clearly has some talent. Not sure why he can't put it together in the NHL...
Both him and konopka will be given the chance next year. Think about it Recchi and Roberts on one year contracts, with these two on two year first year two way second year one way contracts, they are going to be given a choice to make the team either with injuries this year or from camp next year.
I dont get why Konopka cant find a home as solid as it gets for a 4th liner but can easily play on most 3rd lines as a shut down player.
Soft teams like the Kings,Florida etc should be lining up to get his services for the league minimum
I'd like to see Anaheim claim Zenon back again, not many Ducks fans were happy with him being traded away to begin with.
I was. Dude plays with a lot of heart but I'm determined he plays with too much heart and not nearly enough talent. He's just too much out there. Takes way too many penalties and doesn't have the skills to stay in the NHL. There's a reason why he can't find a home.
Is Bochenski really terrible defensively? Because he still manages to put up decent totals whenever he is actually given a chance in the NHL (13 pts in 20 games with the Sens, 22 in 31 with the Bruins a couple years ago)...I always wondered why he could never crack an NHL roster, especially on depth-starved teams.
