Carson's a pretty good #6/7 type right now. Frankly the only reason he was waived is that he was the only dman on a two-way deal. Not a lot of upside to him but he's a good positional dman that's a surprisingly decent skater for his size.

edit: nope, Joslin's on one too. But the Canes had just acquired him.

Well... they traded their number two center and numbers three and four are out due to injury. The team added Dvorak who makes forward-defense much better and Schremp who bumps Stapleton off the starting roster.

It's free. He's worth a shot. If he doesn't work you waive him.

Peverly ended up working out and turning into a solid asset so you never know.

With that said I'm pretty disappointed that we didn't pick up some forward depth. Sigh.
Are you an expert?

I can't believe Schremp was claimed.

For confusion about McElhinny over Conklin, he is way cheaper and that's what Ottawa is about for the rest of the year - keeping the budget down.

Would have really liked the Hawks to have claimed Carson, especially with the Hendry injury. Would have put less pressure on Bowman to pick up 2 D in trades.

I also would not have minded taking a flyer on Schremp and flanking him with defensively responsible wings like Hossa and either Brouwer or Kopecky. Give him a few games, see what he does playing on a playoff contender and see if he turns his stuff around finally playing for a contending team and with true leadership around him. But I understand this might not be the right time for a move like that.

That was my reaction last year when Snow claimed Schremp, after he gets 5 minutes of ice time trust me you will be pulling your hair out.

People said the same thing about Blake Wheeler and he's been one of our best players the past three games.

so of course on deadline day BIRON breaks his collarbone and is out for a while. Someone tell STL to throw Conklin on re-entry or OTT with Leclaire
