I wish the Wild could pick Bouchard for obvious reason.

Kotalik/Morrisonn being waived = No more "Buffalo is in cap trouble let's get Hecht/Boyes/Gaustad/Pominville for junk" threads

Is Godard hurt or something? Dallas just signed him like 2 months ago, kind of weird to waive him before he even plays a regular season game. Godard is tough as nails, a top 3 fighter in the league IMO, and not as bad at hockey as some enforcers, he's a surprising waive IMO (unless he's hurt?).

In case you're wondering, why the flood today - it's the first day a team can waive a player for loan to the AHL/Europe/etc

Today is the start of the "Playing Season Waiver Period", which begins on the 12th day prior to the start of the Regular Season. A player cannot be loaned unless they clear waivers during that Period. Any players waived earlier in the off season would have to be waived again in order to be loaned.

Not sure if you are aware of these players.

Is it because they are both from Quebec or because they have size.

Just so you know both Bouchard and Chaput don't use their size at all. Bouchard the softer one out of the two. If its because they are french players they won't make the big club.

Waste of space really and it takes development from our players we already have in the system who are trying to make the big club.

Bouchard hasn't shown he can do anything in a AHL top-6 role without Mathieu Perreault centering him. Pushing an NHL top-6? Not a chance. Even playing as an NHL 4th liner is way beyond him.

Going by Ottawa fans opinions, they said he lost it the season before he became a UFA and were surprised somebody gave him so much.

Didn't Mauldin have an encouraging stint with Colorado, last season?

The Stars, in their financial situation, aren't going to spend an extra 700k to have a different enforcer/13th forward. Godard was signed more for 2012-13.

Yes but he is the 15th/16th forward on their depth chart. Now that almost everyone is healthy, Colorado has no room for Mauldin in their lineup.

Too bad what is going on here with some of these guys. It is not because they are all non Nhl calibre players, it is just that their salaries are 'too high' because of the stupid salary cap. Cost certainty certainly costs eh? In this case it may cost some guys their NHL careers.

Im confused at the Valentenko waiving. Almost every projected d-lineup from Rags fans had him in it. What happened?

Often times what fans want to project to happen on paper in July is quite different than what coaches actually see happening on the ice in September.

Not sure if you are trolling here, but he just wasn't good in camp/during the game yesterday. Looked very uninspired.
