wapo reporting hammer places on waivers. doubt he will get picked up, but that cap space would be nice.

We can't trade him for anything? Bag of pucks? 6-pack of gatorade?

He probably would have returned an asset, however minor, at the deadline. My guess is he asked out, so George waived him to give him a shot.

So long Hamr - thanks for stepping it up in the playoffs last year. I'm somewhat puzzled why you were unable to play that way during the regular season, however.

Meh. Thought he deserved to play over 3 and 55.

Winner. Still laughing. Most people probably won't get it but your genius is not lost with me, my friend.

It's fairly typical now for the Caps to part ways with good players on bad terms. Hamrlik, Nylander, Vokoun, Semin, Bondra (who deserved it), Jagr, CalleJo. I expect Ovie will be next.

Some team wouldn't even take a 7th for him?

You forgot to mention Kolzig...

Anyhow Hamrlik is still a decent player but he is redundant on this team as we have plenty of soft "puck moving dmen" already on the roster.

On the right team he can be an excellent find.

He's being waived to clear a roster spot for Oleksy. Awful management by McPhee here. If Trent Hunter can return a 4th and healthy scratch Gagne can return a conditional 4th, then Hamrlik could have returned something. Not to mention with the struggles of both our bottom pairing and of Carlson, how Hamrlik wasn't able to get another shot at playing is beyond me. It's not as if 55 and 3 were tearing it up out there. Especially given that, despite the improved play of Erskine, the 4-74 pairing hasn't exactly shut the other team down, the fact they didn't try the old Hamrlik as a vet mentor for the struggling kid routine is dumbfounding.

And it's not like we need the cap space, either. Even if we were trying to acquire salary at the deadline, there's plenty of space. And he's an expiring contract, so it doesn't buy room for next year.

Dumb.

With Weiss going down I see no reason for them to do this. May as well just play young players and engage in tank mode really.

They have some vets they can sell off for some tidy profit at the deadline.

Is he really that bad this year? I wouldn't mind the Oilers claiming him for their bottom pairing.

Green was put on IR to clear a spot for Oleksy. This move is independent.

Johansson was cleared for contact. He's going to come off of IR soon.

He's burned too many bridges within the organization it seems.
