Brendan Witt on WAIVERS

Do you think the Kings might try and pick him up? He would easily be better then Jones and wouldn't cost anything. The only downside I see is he would cost 3 million next season.

I saw this and thought about it but there must be something wrong if a really bad team like the Islanders are releasing a guy like Witt. He's a good defenseman but there must be an injury or something, I feel like there's something behind all of this ruckus

I hope not. Witt is a terrrible defenseman and takes a lot of stupid penalties.

Witt is a drastically different type of defenseman from Jones, so you couldn't say that he would replace Jones. Even so, the Kings don't need him.

Witt has not been placed on re-entry waivers yet, just regular waivers.

Oh. http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=733713 When I read the original thread the other day on trade rumors, you can see how easily you can be confused given the title, sounded like both were on re-entry. Either way, they both cleared.

He hasn't played for the Flyers so we're safe.

Why would we want Witt... he'd just compete with Jack for worst +/- on the squad.

At first glance I would have said yes. Then I looked at his stats. In all fairness to Witt he has played for some really bad teams and he probably signed with NYI because they were the only team dumb enough to pay him what he makes. No way you can pay a minus player who puts up about 10 points a season 3 million dollars though if you're LA. In his last game with NY he played 11 minutes and was a minus 2.

Doesn't matter anyways now that he cleared. Will be re-opened if he enters re-entry waivers. Till then. Moving right along.
