If he's not good enough for two of the five worst offensive teams in the league, he probably won't help you much.

POS needs to go to europe. His floating style will work there.

wow...POS...has really hit rock bottom. I remember when the kings traded him, i was pissed, I guess dean knew what he was doing. I'm just shocked, this guy has top 6 skills, just can't put it together.

i wouldnt mind Mauldin in ATL...could help on the PK and he could take Eagers roster spot (unless Machecek is going to get a longer look)

Dudley likes forwards with size.

And so ends O'Sullivan's NHL career. It's been what? 6 teams now that he has at some point been on the roster and been let go? I can't see him sticking around any more.

I've always liked O'Sullivan, it's really too bad.

Yep. Off to the Swiss league for Patty O, where nobody cares if you float and he can still earn a couple hundred k a year.

I thought Mauldin was doing well on the Avs?

EDIT: Numbers look good... 5 goals, 10 points in 29 games, 10 mins/game...?

Andersson is going to the KHL... waived from the Canucks to allow him to go (yeay contract spot!).

Can't hurt making it three for five, can it?

Note: Two of our most offensively dangerous players are Chris Kelly and Ryan Shannon and we're so offensively deprived that people think Corey Locke could save the day.

I guess it's finally the end of the road for POS in the NHL. Really a shame and such waste of lot of talent, but he can really only blame himself.

I can see a team taking a chance on POS he's cheap and worst case scenario can be waived and is on a 2 way deal, there is always a coach that believes he can turn a guy around someone might give him a shot

If POS starts using his body and getting angry he'd be good, but he won't he's so easy to knock of the puck, he has skill you can see it just not the drive, its quite sad really since many guys would love to have his offensive tools

I hope the Wild Condider Mauldin it be funny if he played vs the AVS tomorrow night, plus is he's a hitter he'd find a fit with Clutterbuck the most beloved player in the league.

POS sucks, that's why he was waived. I can't stand when people say "he has all the skills but...". No, he's just not a very good hockey player.

No. He has skill. Both newspaper writers from the Minneapolis-St Paul area have commented on how he's obviously skilled in practice and can do some amazing things but just can't put it together in a game.

He's very skilled, he just chooses to stay about 20 feet away from the play at all times so everyone else can do the work to get him the puck. One of the most blatant floaters and cherrypickers I've ever seen.

What is the record for most teams played by a single player in say, 2 years? I think POS is going for that record. He'd have played for every single NHL team by the time he's 30.

POS doesn't belong in this league, unless he starts working hard, which prolly won't happen...
