Bottom line, Kalinin will not be waived unless another veteran defenseman is acquired.
I'll add on to it that Renney won't bench Kalinin in fear that he'll make Slats look bad.

Furthermore IF, the Rangers were to waive Kalinin, I'd hope they'd do so after giving Core Potter a good long hard look in the NHL and not for Kaberle who's a spare part on a team with a questionable defense.

I'm all for Potter, but you know Renny wont rush it. That being said is Frantastik a better D man than Kalinin? If so....

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man

No he's not he made a mistake. Those things happen. He got off to a bad start but has turned his game around.
