If you are gonna talk like a tough guy...maybe u should know what your talking about.
What's with the hostility? He asked if they were claimed by teams higher in the waiver order and Bissonette and MacIntyre were. Leach was claimed while we already had Dandenault working his way to a 7th man contract in the "AHL".

So Erik Christensen's presence will all of a sudden transform Boyle into Joel Otto?

I don't get the point in claiming Christensen. Don't we have enough 3rd/ 4th liners? I thought we'd be in lack of scoring....?

Whats the point of claiming and bringing guys in to motivate 4th liners?

What about the 2nd and 3rd lines

Gaborik and Lundqvist have combined for 2 games missed due to injuries. Given Gaborik's... history, this doesnt suggest a problem to me. What is a problem is 18 goals against in 3 games, and I dont see how a fringe NHLer will fix that, no matter how hard he can punch someone in the face.

Brash is injured so this makes for 13 healthy forwards. He has good hands and skates well. Can't hurt to have another option, at least for the time being. Low risk move here.

With Brashear hurt and Dubinsky out for another couple of weeks they were down to 12 forwards. They may not have wanted to pull anyone else up from Hartford so they saw a player who could fill a hole(at least for a little while) as a possible extra forward and grabbed him. Its a depth signing.

Maybe Christensen will turn into a diamond in the rough a la NHL player Rich Peverly and cure our secondary scoring woes.

If Vally clears, I think he doesn't have to go through re-entry waivers. You only have to clear waivers again if you spend 30 days on an NHL roster afaik.

This is a year over due. Steve is a dear friend and really nice guy. He has been way to inconsistent to be in the NHL. Steve battles personal issues like a severe lack of personal confidence that he sees a shrink for and this public knowledge so please don't get upset been in the papers . The Leafs will 100% grab him he will never make it back to the Rangers. Torts finally makes a move and the funny part it is once again a guy that is a leader in the locker room. Why waive Steve when Voros is the worst player on the team. Valli is a locker room leader. He speaks fluent Russian and he and his wife are the ones that set up the team parties and functions, I know I hate Torts and this is a good team move but stinks he is such a great guy

Hey Orr, I know you aren't directing it at me but can you quote who you are responding to? I am trying to follow what you are saying but it's confusing when they are so far apart.

Dagoon? Is that you?

I know that scoring and solid defense go much further into winning hockey games than goonery.

He plays well in Toronto.... they have serious issues up there with goaltending. Could be a great thing for him and his family

Sorry, it is direct towards Fitzy or whatever his name is.

I guess Mike Rupp was a dumb signing by the Penguins and I remember reading when we were trying to sign Chris Neil how everyone was against it.

I love watching Brooks Orpik and Bill Guerin smacking Gabby around and not one guy come to his aid...

But we don't need tough guys...that is not winning hockey.
