Very much a hail mary type move here. Either he sticks as a skill player or he's gone. Martin Straka and Martin St Louis were waiver pick ups at one point. Not expecting anything like that, but it doesn't hurt considering the lack of skill on the wings.

If The Golden Boychuk sets up a Malkin or Sutter goal, or scores himself from Malkin or Sutter tonight, I am changing my name to Chancellor Vitalechuk.

And don't think I won't do it, FOO!



(By the way someone needs to tell Sid to "lose the Mr. T starter set". Sid with gold chain is not cool.)

A slightly more skilled, less physical Chris Conner? Barf.

Did the New York waiver wires put in a claim for him?

Not sure, according to the Isles board most wanted him. I don't know how the orders is redone after you select a player, I assume now we go at the bottom of the list since we claimed Zach

Nobody can freak out if this move doesn't work. It didn't cost us a thing, and if we choose to send him down, the Canes will claim him and send him to Charlotte.

It's worth a shot...maybe we strike oil and this kid just fits. Kind of like Niskanen. By no means am I going to be sarcastic and complain about this move.....nor will I be all up in arms if it doesn't work.

At least it's an attempt to fix something...a cheap one, but it's an attempt.

Meh. Another [insert name of your choice of existing/destined-to-be undersized career AHL forward]. But who knows. There's little downside.

Boychuk has history with Sutter. 3:19.

True, but we're actually lower than the Islanders in the standings. So I believe that we have first waiver claim over them.

Well we said Shero needed to make a bold move. Here it is everyone.

Anyway, I'm pleased with the move. Might as well take a shot at a guy. It's not like we have much else.

I don't understand why people compare him to the Niskanen acquisition. Niskanen played very well for Dallas before he has a rough season and a half of the following year. But at least he showed he could produce in the NHL. Boychuk has been more like Tangradi, he couldn't earn a spot on the canes over the past 5 years. Niskanen had more points in his rookie season than Boychuk has in his career.

That being said, it's not a bad move. But I'm expecting him to fail as my confidence is shot regarding Shero.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the islanders claimed Granber off waivers and look how well that worked. I'm willing to bet Boychuk will be like Cal O'Reilly.

he's the same age as Tangradi. it's kind of funny seeing people on other boards refer to him as a kid.

All part of the Shero grand plan...blow game #6 to although Isles to leapfrog us in the standings, precipitating Carolina waiving Boychuk, allowing us to claim him infront of NYI.

BEST GM-ING EVAR!!!!

All those yinzers booing the other night weren't smart enough to see this coming.

Best of luck to him, hopefully he sticks for you guys. He just wasn't going to do it on a team that's already on the small and soft side, and had blocked him with other young wingers. We couldn't give him real ice time, but we really couldn't shelter him either, and he showed no signs of knocking the door down or adapting his game to our needs. It just wasn't the right place for him here. It's entirely possible he goes out and finds a niche somewhere else.

FWIW, aside from the typical arguing over prospects and annual baseless speculation about conditioning coming into camp, I don't think anyone really had an issue with his personality or attitude. He seems like a good kid.

I've just about given up all hope at this point... Unless there is a change behind the Bench & in "system" thinking and work ethic this will continue to be a **** joke team.

I think in a NORMAL season, the waiver order reflects the previous season's standings for the first month of the new season, and after that it goes by current standings.

Since it's not a normal season, I have no idea how it works this year.
