Why? Don't they have Tavares/Nielsen/Bailey at centre with Cizikas also probably being good enough now to play 3rd line C? And with more heart than Connolly. They could've given Strome a chance.

That's a stooped

Connolly did play a bit of LW last year, could be placed there in NY. Granted, I don't know their LW depth.

Moulson, Bailey, Grabner...with Bailey out 1-3 weeks, but waivers arent done until noon. Theres no way anyone could know this now so its probably either an error or someone in Toronto making a joke about the Isles on the radio.

Connolly may not have been claimed, the poster misquoted the radio.

Yeah fair enough. Maybe they slot him in 3rd line LW while Bailey is gone, who knows. I guess we can't really say anything until it's official, if at all.

It is impossible for him to have been claimed by the Islanders at this time. IMPOSSIBLE.

They could put in a claim for him, but it will not be final until noon. Other teams have waiver priority over the Islanders as well.

I see a replacement for the top 9 (Colborne) and a replacement for the 4th line (Steckel). So yes, looks just fine for depth. A youth movement even.

Wait for it...........can't find one credible source to confirm this.

If that radio station is like the all-sports stations in NY, then fans call up with rumors. Some of the hosts and listeners, then run with them as if they are credible.

I'm gonna go call in, an Evander Kane to LI rumor.

It's 100% false.

He just misheard. They did mention Connolly and NYI claiming Aucoin in the sports update.

You do realize this thread is about a FA Burkie signed, do you.

As to the garbage part, you're probably more right that you meant to be.

PS: Are you blaming me for using Burkie's terms... Free wallets indeed.

it does make sense for the isles, it would keep cizikas in the ahl at bport so there are 2 offensive minded centers and 2 defensive minded centers on the isles

I wouldn't call it outrage. Just poking some fun at the NYI. Leafs would actually prefer to do this, since it still gives us the ability to do 2 more salary retention deals.

Since we know Mirtle posts on HF, I'd ask if HF is Mirtle's source

Cappy has spoken out losing Bailey from the pk unit and his concerns about the pk.

I think Cizikas is a better PK player then Connolly.
