You can have Kaberle for free, Montreal would probably throw some pucks and sticks with him.

I have an odd good feeling about this move.

Never thought much of Palushaj. I just don't see him being anything more than a career AHL'er at this point. He's a guy it's really hard to find a spot for in the lineup. As noted, not good enough for a top-six role and not suited to be in the bottom-six either.

No risk by claiming him but I don't expect much to happen with him for the Avalanche.

I could see him having a similar impact on the Avs like D'Agostini on the Blues.. For 1 or 2 seasons than career AHL or europe.

The Avs like to come pick off our players huh

Thing is about Palushaj that we never really gave him a real chance. When he was with the Bulldogs, he was doing good and seemed to have some potential.

But everytime we moved him up, he wouldn't stand out at all. Not offensive, okay defensive, not physical, not taking many penalties, not touching the puck often.

We were playing him on the 4th line or as a 13th player, so that could be a reason why he wouldn't "shine" at all.

If you have 4 injuries in your top 6, at least try him out and see what happens. Can't guarantee success, but it would let you know exactly what he can do.

Dags could be a pretty good player on a team the problem for Dags is there is no room for him in STL. The Blues have 3 second lines and a fourth line without playing dags. He has looked good in the 2 games he has played in but unless there is an injury he will never get to play every day.

Anyone else? Lol. You still haven't claimed a decent player.

Agreed. I can only wish him good luck and hope that a change of scenery will allow him to jumpstart his career.

I think Palushaj could have an NHL career if he's converted into a defensive forward. He has good speed and dynamism, and I could see him doing well on the PK. But he just doesn't have enough offensive skills and instinct to be an offensive forward. His shot is weak, at best.

For the record, he was having a really rough season in Hamilton before getting injured. Then again, very few players have looked good under this coaching staff...

In college, Palushaj looked like a very good playmaker with high-end vision. Although I haven't seen him consistently in the pros, the games I've seen him in NHL and AHL play, he's looked decent I though, not as bad as many Habs fans seem to think he is.

But, as I said, I've seen him a limited amount recently and I was fairly high on him before he turned pro, so that may have affected my observations.
