Seems like both Moreau and Hunter were brought in until they felt the kids were ready, Moreau was waived after Lotkionov secured his spot, Hunter is being waived after it looks like Nolan or King can play....
Hmmm...sounds like a plan to me....
Hunter could help out the kids in Manch.....regarding Moreau, he's just sitting back collecting his paycheck, what a piece of work this guy is . If he didn't want to play in the AHL, he shouldn't have come to the east coast.
I don't get the Lewis hate. He's not around to score goals.
He's was the 17th pick in the draft and is a role player. You can find a bunch of T. Lewis in the AHL so to me right now he is a bust. Yes he hustles but bottom line is he has 3 points in 48 games that is embarrassing.
People are actually mad about Hunter? Who was so impressive in camp that it's somehow a travesty that Hunter got that spot instead?
If you actually thought he would score 15-20 goals then ask yourself why Lombardi could sign him for a mere $600k when 15-20 goalscorers usually get millions? He didn't even get a contract in free agency, he had to prove himself in training camp to earn one. That tells you what the expectactions were. It was a low risk, low reward signing. The rewards were low, so to the waiver wire he goes. Teams make these kinds of moves all the time, I don't see what the big deal is.
Lewis turn slowly into a Draper like player.
Someone the oponents really hate to play aginst and scores here and tehre.
Exactly what i want from our 4th line center.
Now the coaching staff has to turn Clifford into a MocCarthy and we are set at 4th line.
That just requires to explain the game of hockey to Clifford and tel him to stop to fight
