I thought Johan Backlund was a pretty good goalie, will he get claimed?

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.

I think there is a good chance. After the success Snow had last year with claiming Grabner, why not give it another shot, right? He could turn out to be a good player for the Isles if they claim him.

There's a pretty big difference between Grabner and ShaMo.

Before speculating, you should probably just read back a page where Piqued summed it up quite nicely.

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.

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.

I hope someone claims Morrisonn, I used to really like him during his days in Washington.

I think all others will clear, maybe a few guys will be claimed for depth but that's it.

I think he has NHL backup potential. His hip though is horrendous. He keeps get surgery on it. It is almost like it is always about to explode.

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.

Why did Buffalo re-acquire Kotalic in the off season, especially with that big salary ?

Likely a condition required by the Flames in order for them to agree to trade Regher to the Sabres.

In other words, in order for the deal to be completed, they had to agree to assume Calgary's $3mil deadwood.
