I don't get the appeal of Luca Caputi. Burke said he had a 2nd and 4th(?) on the table, and took an NHL player for Ponikarovsky. 18 months later he is on waivers.

Same could happen to whatever the 2nd round pick was going to be. I don't fault Burke for taking a chance on a kid from Toronto, who produced almost a PPG clip in the AHL at 20-21(?).

Caputi had a serious injury that kept him out the bulk of the year last season. So I want to see how he does this season. He's a bigger kid, and may take a bit longer to put it together.

He's turning 23 in August, so it's not like his window is totally shut.

EDIT: And I don't think Burke said he was an 'NHL player'. He felt that Caputi would contribute to the Leafs quicker then a 2nd round pick. Which made sense given what he had accomplished after two seasons in the AHL.

Maybe, he is homesick, and he wants to go back once again in the KHL like he did 3 years agao when he left the Montreal organization ?

He was progressing well and was called up early last season but suffered a sports hernia. He had season ending surgery and hasn't played in almost a year. Way to be uninformed.

Uh, why? If the Pens claimed them, they'd have to stay up with the NHL club, or risk Toronto simply reclaiming them on waivers if the Pens attempt to send them down to the AHL. And at this point, there is absolutely no room for Ziggy or Caputi on the Pens' NHL squad.

Don Cherry is going to be pissed about Zigomanis.

Every time the Leafs lose a few faceoffs, he is going to rant.

On waivers. He was signed to play with Tampa's AHL affiliate in Norfolk.

Did Endras even get a chance in any preseason game?

Caputi's injury and Toronto's improvement in prospect depth put him on the outside looking in. He's not good enough to make the team, maybe someone else gives him a shot.

not gonna be shocked if Morrison is claimed

perhaps the Rangers and sending down Erixon for some seasoning. Backup with Staal out

Although I rather see the Rangers trade Christensen for a stop gap Dman

You're just not paying attention.

I'm not saying he's always right - I'm simply saying that he's right a lot more often then many of us want to give him credit for.

exactly this. Frankly I'm curious at whoever wrote that "[Godard is] not as bad at hockey as some enforcers" -- who the hell did you have in mind? He's a pretty good fighter but that's it. You won't find a worse hockey player.

I can see a team taking a chance on Kotalik and Zigomanis especially if they want a depth forward.

That's what I thought as well, there seems to be no updates on these players anywhere.

The only players I've heard anything about are Brandon Segal (assigned to AHL) and Cristobal Huet (assigned to Switzerland) which seems to indicate the waiver period is over, but anyone privy to that information is too busy talking about suspensions (the TSN crew) or the NYR-PHI outdoor classic press conference.

While having no news on the players already on waivers, I do have four new guys placed on waivers today.
