Maybe Garth saw "Aucoin" and thought it was Adrian on waivers?

As for Redden...he'd make a good third pairing. Hickey is good for youth, but Redden brings experience. He did have a solid 10 years of success. Experience over youth in this case.

Gomez would be a mistake. He can only play NJ type hockey. He's already proven with 2 teams he can't play anything else.
In our case I think youth>experience... Bring him in to mentor, but at this point unless he shows something a #7 is what he should be

I'd rather just have Cizikas or Ullstrom up rather than Aucoin.

I think they picked him up for AHL depth...kinda like Frischmon or whatever that dudes name was from last year.

As for Connolly...we won't have a chance to get him. We all saw what the Jackets are sporting as their 3 lines..they NEED everything they can possibly get their hands on as far as forwards are concerned.

Except they plan on waiving him again sending him to the Bridge then I see very little point in this. Surely this guy can't be meant for the Island??

I was all for claiming Connolly as it would mean at least CC would be sent back to the Bridge, but I guess money talks. Once again, Wang forces Garth to go shop at the Discount Store...

Unless they're as budget conscious as the Isles are. In which case, he would slip down the list.

Don't think we would claim him being we just claimed Aucoin, unless they send someone else down.

Why in the world aren't we putting in a claim on Haley ? He would add to our overall toughness, and imagine him w/ Tavares and Moulson, he'd score at least 10 goals a year, and open up space for Tavares.

All joking aside, I did like the guy, great fighter, and he does have some talent. Hit 10+ goals a season at Bridgeport, DESPITE only averaging 50 or so games. So obvioulsy he's more than just an average goon. I wouldn't mind picking him up over Keith Aucoin.

I think Haley has "issues" that the Isles advised him to take care of, but he never did.

Anyone else see Columbus put erixon on waivers? He was just dealt for Nash. Wouldn't he be worth a waiver pick up?

I'd pick Erixon up. I'd also pick up Connolly. They need him down the middle desperately if they think they have a chance. Erixon, you just never know since he was a highly touted prospect.

They rewaive Finley and whoever else and call it a day.

Erixon was sent to the AHL, not on waivers.

Any chance the Isles claimed Aucoin b/c they intend to claim Connolly and would then expose Aucoin so the Leafs could take him back? Not sure of the mechanics of all that and if it would work out.

Redden and Gomez both cleared waivers today and it looks like Redden may be close to a new deal either tonight or tomorrow according to Bob Mckenzie:

Quote:
No guarantees but Wade Redden may agree to terms with an NHL team as early as tonight. Gomez not likely tonight but in next day or so.
Quote:
Multiple teams considering options on both. LA, STL, TOR, FLA among those kicking tires on Redden, ANA and CAR among those considering Gomez
Glad to see we are not mentioned for either of those players.

Such crap that they aren't interested in Connolly. He's the type of guy this team needs at this very moment(this season not a long term answer)

Moulson-JT-Boyes
Bailey-Connolly-Okposo
Ullstrom-Nielsen-Grabner
Joennssu-Reasoner-Martin

This team would actually have three decent scoring lines.

Those lines look pretty good, admittedly, but....this is not the same Connolly you remember though. He was awful in Toronto and they desperately need a #1 C, not even a #2. They chose Bozak, Steckel, McClement and Grabovski instead.

Granted, Boyes was also terrible in BUF, a $1MM risk is not the same as a $4MM risk.
