I'm not so much angry as I am dumbfounded. If this is for salary cap reasons, I can understand. However, EC should be waived too. He was one of our worst players in preseason. He was outplayed by half the Whale roster. Mitchell or Newbury deserve to be on the team over EC, and are cheaper, too.
If this was a salary cap move, I can live with it, but EC sure as hell better be getting waived too. There are better and cheaper options in Hartford with Mitchell and Newbury, both of whom outplayed EC and are on cheaper contracts.
If this is a Torts move, and has nothing to do with the cap, then I'll be enraged. Avery hands-down outplayed EC, and wasn't even given a chance to dress the final 2 games. Torts' responsibility is to ice the best roster within the cap, not play favorites.
I'm sure it is, because there's no way Christensen earned a spot, at least not in my eyes.
Well what I'm getting at is that this is a business decision made by the General Manager, not the coach.... I know some will portray it as Tortorella waiving Avery but the reality is that this is a move by the GM.... It's not like Torts walks into Glen's office and says, "Well, EC made the team, place Sean on waivers...."
