Not so sure somebody is going to jump on that contract with two more years left on it. The guy aso hasn't played in months and has had some mystery case of vertigo. The guy could probably use a some playing time in Manchester. If he gets picked up, good for him.
As I suggested on the trade rumors forum, I think they should move him for another "bad" contract but in exchange for a more useful player, like say Jochen Hecht, former linemate of Handzus, and someone who can replace (and be an upgrade) over Kyle Calder once he's gone.
I really hope someone claims him, but in these times even if there was a good player out there it hurts to take a contract and not give one up. Here's hoping...
"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
Apparently there were no takers on TP in the days before the deadline. So much for all you posters who kept including him in your proposals and thinking he'd fetch us a late round pick. I have to wonder if he suffered from the same kind of dizziness that Jason Allison did before he left.
I'd be all good with that (maybe not so good for Preissing but hey, what can you do?). A couple of seasons back when they sent TvO here for the playoffs he was a huge part of the Narchs playoff success...
