Not sure if you are trolling here, but he just wasn't good in camp/during the game yesterday. Looked very uninspired.
That and the fact that he has to clear waivers to come back up to the big club. It's the last year of his contract so it was a now or never type deal. It wouldn't be a terrible pick up for a team that's going to keep him in the NHL and is willing to be patient with him. He looked dreadful in camp though. It's too bad.
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.
I think they are gonna be OK with their Millions...easy on the bleeding heart stuff...
I want Godard.. What's his salary??? Wonder why he'd be waived without even playin a game after signing a contract 2 months ago.. Weiiiiird...
Attitude? Drugs? somtn we don't know I guess..
Before speculating, you should probably just read back a page where Piqued summed it up quite nicely.

I love how people find it so hard to spell Shaone Morrisonn
Me too, when people put an extra "S" in his last name it annoys the **** out of me.
I expect all to clear, except for one or two. I really hope Morrisonn gets claimed by someone, not only because we wouldn't have to worry about him anymore but because he still is an NHL-calibre player and I'd like him to still play in the NHL even though he can't here. I hope someone gives him that chance; he's not nearly as bad as people say and he's remained positive all summer of the situation.
I could see someone taking a chance on Valentenko, just because of the potential he is said to have. Redden, Huet, Kotalik, and all of the obvious AHLers will clear, no doubt.
No you don't. If he is anything like when he left Pittsburgh he was having trouble staying in shape. I mean he is loved in Pittsburgh for getting Johnsons back in the Isles game but he can't even handle 4 minutes a game anymore.
