Yeah I don't really get this move. But I didn't understand the Carter claim either so I just wait and see what happens. But that move is kinda suprising

Something's up. We have 25 players in camp + Henrique on IR. One is Darche without a contract. That leaves 24 players. Matteau HAS to be sent to juniors since Butler counts towards the roster, just to make the 23 man limit.

The only thing waiving Butler does is allow for a roster spot. Either for Matteau (not sure if that's allowed per junior rules), Gomez, or Sykora.

Has to be a Sykora signing. Or maybe Henrique will be back for the home opener, but that's reaching.

Edit : In my opinion this is either a trade in the making, or Lou has seen Butler and decided Sykora is better for the job
I think this has to mean Sykora's coming back.

Well Lou has to have something in the works.... Obviously they don't have Butler slotted into the lineup if they are going to risk losing him. Is Parise/Poni/Sykora's offense REALLY going to be replaced by Tedenby, Barch, Janssen, and possibly Darche? Not a chance... ughhhghghg

Roster isn't even set in stone yet. I wouldn't panic. Lou's not even close to putting the finishing touches on it.

They will most likely keep Matteau and send Tedenby/Larsson down until Butler clears.

How do we even know what we'd get from Butler? How do we even know what the team's plans are moving forward now?

Waiving Bobby Butler is a minor concern, and as I've said already it either means Darche and Matteau are getting roster spots or one of them is and somebody is being brought in

Butler was 6/10 in 56 games last year. If hes who you re relying on to score we are in deep trouble. Plus hes what 26 so its not like the numbers are going to get alot better.

Some people severely overestimate what Butler would bring to the team I guess.

We don't exactly have a dearth of secondary scoring options.

There has to be a viable reason. No way we start the season playing both Barch and Janssen, and if we do....Lou has lost it.

Losing Bobby Butler does not destroy our offensive hopes.

When I watched the scrimmage, Butler was a complete non factor. The Devils brass probably thought if he couldn't play top 6 then he wasn't worth keeping up with the big club.

They can't do that, though. That leaves 24 men on the roster.

The Devils and tryout Mathieu Darche are still talking today. No contract yet.

What probably happened is Parise made his heel turn and was like "That's it man I can't do all these trees and mountains and snow and ****" and demanded a trade back here on the condition that Bobby Butler gets waived.

It's the only reason some dude who sucks at hockey got waived.

So I guess this means Matteau goes to juniors by 5pm and Darche gets Butler's roster spot.
