I'm not a big fan of the "well they could have had this guy or that guy with the pick" stuff but I hated that selection the moment I saw him go up on stage and looked like he'd blow off it if someone left a door open.

Of course Chris Summers was the guy I was in on for that draft. I guess he could turn into something but don't take what I say too seriously.

I mean Summers is a RFA this Summer and did play 21 Games last Season with the Yotes. However, with guys like Yandle and Klesla already there and with the emergence of OEL and not to mention with guys like Gormley and Rundblad likely to make a push I would say Chris's days as a Yote are numbered.

BUFFALO — Former Sabres defenseman Shaone Morrisonn, banished to the AHL Rochester Americans last season as a salary cap casualty, has signed a one-year contract with Spartak Moscow of the KHL, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Quote:
Five other players from the 2011-12 Amerks – Drew MacIntyre, Michael Ryan, Dennis Persson, Mark Voakes and Paul Szczechura – have already signed deals to play in Europe next season. Persson, a defenseman picked 24th overall in 2006, never played for the Sabres.

I figure there were cap arguments and direction considerations and giving the future prospects a good look see. But it would be clear to me that I'm not part of the Sabre's present much less future, I'm tired of playing 7th D minutes and the KHL is a lot more forgiving league. And I'm a UFA.

So good for him.

Morrisson's contract was still 1-way, so that's why he never got called up I'd guess. We have plenty of D without him, so good luck to him in the KHL.

Wasn't it because we were pushing way to close to the cap? I'm sure the type of contract is irrelevant (as IIRC, it only affects how much the player is paid and not movement between organisations).

Good luck to ShaMo, he was decent when called upon. As far as Persson, hindsight's a *****, it's a shame he couldn't develop into a better player for us/ us making a better descision in the draft. Slipped way down the depth chart. Bye!

I'm pretty sure it was because of re-entry waivers, if someone picked him up there, we would've been on the hook for half his salary and cap-hit, something we couldn't afford since we were so close to the cap for long stretches anyway. That doesn't explain however why he wasn't used in emergency-recall situations, but I guess since those recalls only played limited minutes anyway, Ruff wanted to plan for the future and test guys like Brennan...

If he was on injury recall, the recall-waivers would've been exempt. However, they would've been on the hook for the weekly cap hit and they were just too close to the max to flirt with using him in that fashion. He was pretty much damned due to his contract.

That's what I was trying to say . As an injury-recall he would've been waiver-exempt, but I think we probably could've fit him under the cap when guys like Myers, Boyes, Hecht or Ehrhoff had been on LTIR. They just decided not to because he wasn't much of an upgrade compared to Brennan.
But I think the main point here was a non-injury-recall situation, where we would've risked to be on the hook for half of his salary and cap-hit if he got claimed.
