How many times has Tom Preissing cleared waivers in the past 2 years, seems to be a semi-annual thing.

Although usually when you make cap room, you don't waive 14 goal guys that cost only $850,000. I would have waived Kotalik or Staios first. But I'm a Canucks fan so I guess my opinion doesn't mean much on this.

WTF do they waive a 30 player just making 850 k. There is a lot of players on the Flames roster that deserve this more.

Kotalik was waived first so...

I'm thinking he's not being waived for cap space but for space on the LW.

Plus, chances are someone will pick up Dawes, while no one is gonna pick up Staios. If we add a LW through free agency/trade, Dawes will not be one of our top 3 LW.

You must be thinking of someone else. The Nigel Dawes that played for the Flames last year was not a good two way player. He was very weak defensively, and had more trouble than anyone getting the puck out of the zone, turning it over time and time again.

His 14 goals will be missed but I'm fairly confident that Sutter has his eyes on someone infinitely better than Dawes.

Good luck Nigel!

Yes I agree. Dawes is not what I would call a good two way player at all...but he has great hands (in the offensive zone) and a pretty decent shot. I am praying nobody picks him up...but why wouldnt they??

There's certainly more Flames fans than there is people that care about your opinion.....

To bad we didn't sign any of them. We traded for them with 1-2 years left on their contract.

A lot of them leave to Free agency because there is no cap space. Cammalleri wanted to stay (if the money was right of course). Do your homework before you write something like this.

Cammi: Mike actually REALLY wanted to sign with the Flames. Even apparently called Iggy and Regehr asking them to talk to Darryl. Which makes Cammi leaving even harder.

Jokinen: Actually loved it here and there are alot of interviews to prove that. He was sent away its not like he asked for a trade.

Kotalik: haha he doesnt have a choice. But he did waive his "no movement" to come here.

You got us on Higgins. Really upset that guy wouldnt sign before July.

Also Bouwmeester didnt mind signing a day before he hit the market...

I wont even go there today....celebrating Pandolfo's career ending is disgraceful by Devil fans....A Selke candidate, a two time cup winner and the "Children of the Board" pay no respect whatsoever....Purely distgusting!

So I wont even go there I'll just get in trouble.

It's a little upsetting that Cammalleri is exactly what the Flames need right now too. :/

a couple years back Tom Preissing was good, maybe it was just as a depth defenceman on my fantasy team.

I dont think he would be waived so consistently had he been making $1.9M per season.

Jay Pandolfo said he requested that the team place him on waivers and buy him out so he can get a fresh start with a new team.
