If Florida wanted Hordichuk, why not pick him up on waivers? Peters is on a two way deal.. he makes a pittance in the minors.
Goes back to Gillis' philosophy of not burying NHL players (to contracts that he signed) in the minors. Both players likely will be waived and demoted to the AHL by their new teams, but hopefully with less baggage than being demoted by their existing teams.
Haters going to hate but fighting is a part of the game that isn't going away despite the rising amount of estrogen in men today. I'd much rather have a 6'4 guy top ten guy than an undersized guy who's admired for his effort in fights more than his ability to blast people in the face. All I know is jersey punches for the win. Although I have a feeling Peters is going to the Moose.
is gillis okay with burying peters in the minors because he didnt sign him to the contract? is that it?
He's not being buried. He's on a 2-way deal. That deal was signed with the assumption that playing in the minors was a legitimate possibility, and also I believe that Peters was already waived and possibly assigned to the AHL by Florida. Peters was AHL-bound already, but he managed to theoretically find Hordy a place to play in the NHL.
