I guess Poti and or Hossa wouldn't do it. I recall J.D saying a few years ago that Huselius was going to be a star in the NHL. When I first saw him play, i believed it too.

I'm glad Poti and Hossa didn't do it.

Probably had to get a player, or his salary, off their roster before acquiring someone else.

The new economics of the NHL. the Flames needed to unload some salary to take on the one for Huselius.

But if they claimed him on the way up, they only would have had to pay half of his salary... and could've probably afforded to keep Montador. I don't think Montador makes that much. And Huselius, I believe makes 1.3, which would've only been 650,000 if they got him on the way up from waivers.

Correcting myself:

Huselius makes $1.216 million this year.

Montador makes the league minimum 450,000.

I really don't understand why they didn't just claim Huselius on the way up and only pay $610,000 for him and keep Montador.

Anyone have an answer?

Maybe they didnt want to lose their waiver ranking and at the same time move some salary, alot of factors had to have been considered.

I don't think Huselius was ever assigned to the AHL, much like Marchant wasn't when he was waved by the BJ's. I could be wrong, but I don't think non-roster players that were waived are subject to rentry waivers. Anybody know if that's incorrect?

Ahhh! That could be it. I'm not sure.

Huselius was never sent down, therefore he wouldn't be subject to "recall" waivers where the team picking him up would only have to pay half his salary...and if that ever was the case, where Huselius would only cost a team around $600,000, he'd be claimed waaaaay before the Flames have the opportunity.

What's the waiver claiming order? I mean, which teams get the first opportunity at claiming a player on waivers?

Huselius is very lazy out on the ice...not a good fit for this team at all IMO.

Great trade by Calgary.

Huselius is a very good player.

A big point producer and highly tecnichal skilled in Sweden, underachieving in the NHL under Mike Keenan.

He for sure has pure star level potential.

He needs to get his personal problems under control though. If the coach believes in him, puts him together with good players and give him ice time... It can be a pure success story.

I don't know how the new waiver rules work, but in baseball you can expose a guy to waivers and if he gets claimed you can pull him back. If it's the same in hockey, that would explain why they wound up giving up a player.

That's not the case in hockey. A player can't be pulled back for any reason once they are on waivers.

I agree. He needed to get out of Florida badly. I still feel Huselius can tap his potential in Calgary.
