Not only do you suggest us to pickup Shane O'Brien, but he would be on our top pairing? Ouch...

Grabner has not produced at the level to equal his rep. HF rates him 7.5B which is about top six level. But his best points season was 30 goals 18a for 48 points in 66 games in the AHL. Then last year dropped down a bit in goals and ppg before being called up to Vancouver. Maybe Florida figured something out. He has some finishing skill, but maybe that's all.

Ouch... Just saw where DeBoer was quoted as saying that he wasn't a fourth line plugger and "if you're going to make a case for yourself to make a team as a scorer, you better score.''

I wonder if Santorelli is still in the running to make it? He's shown as still being on their squad.

Grabner would be a decent addition for the Ads. He'd be a redundant piece fighting for the last couple spots with the Preds. See Linus, Cal, Jonas ................

Let's pick up Brendan Morrison. Vancouver just let him go too.

Is it just me or have a ton more players than usual been placed on waivers?

I read an article earlier this week about this. It's a good way for teams to rid themselves of bad contracts without taking a hit on their salary cap. Look at Wade Redden, go play in the AHL for 4 more seasons, make a ton of money or return to the NHL if possible at a fraction of the cost? Hard to turn down $23 million dollars.

This needs to be addressed in the next CBA and I think it will be.

As far as Morrison goes, he was on a tryout basis anyway so no biggie. He's at the end of his career.

There will always be surprises with waivers but I don't think this year is that different from years past.

Andrew Peters is on waivers also. If we get O'Brien, Grabner, and Peters...then we can trade all 3 of those plus a 4th round pick for Malkin!

I think they should throw in Crosby as well. 3 players plus a draft pick should at least net us two superstars.

I think that's too much coming from the Pens. I mean, we could give them Laakso, but then it'd be us overpaying. I don't see how GMs do it.

You mean 29 teams passed on him? How could that be?

The Moose should be an interesting team this season with all of the waiver action from Vancouver.

Wow. That would be pretty interesting if true. Would it put O'Brien into the top six or would it put Sulzer into the top six and O'Brien in the seventh spot?

We don't trade for O'Brien without putting him in the top six...

Then why didn't we just claim him off waivers?

Obviously needed to balance the budget. Gendur is a contract. He's playing in the ECHL...

Really don't like giving up Andersson too. Guy was very hard worker, fast, and skilled. Don't like that move at all...

wow, i don't get this at all. Andersson looked like he wasn't going to make the team, but he was waiver exempt and looked like good depth. Parent was better than Klein or Bouillon in preseason...so we trade him for a penalty machine with a history of attitude and conditioning issues?

Yeah, I'm not sure I really get this one. Poile must thing O'Brien is an upgrade, though, if he's willing to send Parent and Andersson both to Vancouver.

This move simply doesn't make sense. O'Brien already cleared waivers and will be on re-entry waivers when he gets called up. Someone would likely claim him for 800K. I'd rather have had Parent get a shot than him anyway AND you add Andersson who management was so excited about during the offseason before he even plays 1 game?

My initial reaction is I'm not happy about this.

If O'Brien wasn't assigned to the AHL (One reporter says he was, though I've not seen it confirmed anywhere else), he does not need to clear recall waivers.

Do we have any sources other than a McKenzie rumor on Twitter?
