Well, it just goes to show what Oiler fans on HFB know. Just last week I had a few telling me that Eager was "untouchable" unless we gave a severe "overpayment". Nice to see the "overpayment" could be getting him for free off waivers...

I still don't think the Habs should go for him, though, as he is not what we need.

I was hoping to get Matt Kassian on waivers, but he got traded away for a 6th! Can anyone tell me if there is a penalty to claiming a player off waivers that would make a team not take Kassian for free rather than give up a 6th for him?

Do you have a link to these people calling Eager untouchable, or are you just ragging on Oiler fans? I have never read anything suggesting that from an Oiler fan.

Gone is the joyful expression from Tambo's face in that episode of Oil Change where he got the call that Ben Eager was ready to agree to terms.

I think it's just timing. After DD got rung against the Leafs, Murray felt the need for a new tough guy that he wasn't feeling back when Kassian was on waivers.

The only real penalty in general is taking up a contract against the 50, but you're doing that with a trade for a pick or waiver claim, either way.

Yeah, I'd be interested in seeing that. I don't recall more than a game or two where Eager actually lived up to his contract. Maybe you got Eager confused with Eberle...

My guess is he's healthy now and coming off the IR, so Chicago is waiving him to send him to the AHL.

He's just posted the same thing in the Eager available thread. Eager has been done for awhile, with the addition of Brown the writing was on the wall.

I thought Johnson had played well in his role with the Coyotes. Weird to see him on waivers.

Timing, as well as if he is claimed of waivers he HAS to stay with the big club or risk being on waivers again.
With the trade they can immediately assign him to the farm and call him up when they are ready (and then he would be subjected to waivers if he needs to go down again).

If the Flames were truly rebuilding they could use a guy like Johnson as a warm body for after the trade deadline.

I guess you'd call him Rosta Filla.

Delightful to see Eager on waivers, he's played like he deserves to be there. I hope someone claims him looking for "toughness that can play" lol

On Johnson is he a center and does he play with any amount of grit and toughness?

Wow.. Eager has been waived? Well, he's only got 1 year left and we've got too many wingers. Guess it made sense after Jones came back.

No one did, the closest you'll get it a couple people saying they don't want to trade him for junk or in a trade making the team softer (this was before Brown made Eager expendable.) So yeah, I guess that means we all thought he was an untouchable hockey god.

Yup... I can just make up stuff too.


Honestly I'm kinda meh on this waive. I kind of wanted to see how Eager would play now that Brown is in the lineup and is willing to drop them instead of Eager having to be that guy. I'd rather play Eager over Petrell against certain teams but the Oilers had too many roster players. No biggie, he's only got this year left so I wouldn't be surprised if he's claimed.

Too bad Olesz isn't an impending UFA. Not sure I'd want to take the chance he doesn't pan out if my team was going to spend towards the cap next season.

If Eager clears does he become a buyout candidate in the offseason?

I think you are stretching the thruth there. I can not see any Oilers fan that watched him play say he is untouchable. Sorry bud, but I do not believe you one bit.

As for Eager I wish he would play tougher would make him a lot more vaulable too a team. I hope he gets picked up.

Some of the pertinent points:

An Oiler fan asked for Eller for Eager and a 2nd. Another Oiler fan pointed out Montreal wouldn't do it and that Eller was too soft, anyway.

An Oiler fan asked about Thrower for Eager. He was rebuffed.


I just read that entire thread and you're totally full of it. Big time.

No where did anyone say Eller wouldn't get Eager. Some kid offered a 2nd and Eager for Eller. Thats an Oilers fan ASKING for Eller not saying he isnt enough.


You also have to keep in mind that thread was before the Oilers picked up Mike Brown, they need a guy like that in the lineup so they couldn't just get rid of that type of guy for nothing without replacing what he brings.

Since no one actually said that, In the Eager trade thread he changed his tune to "no one said it, but that's totally what they meant."

As a Coyotes fan, I think it's pretty unfair that Johnson has lost his job to Klinkhammer so quickly. Johnson looked AMAZING in his first couple of games, too. It remains to be seen if Klinkhammer is any more or less consistent. If his game falls off a cliff once the adrenaline of being in the NHL wears off in a few games. Johnson stopped producing points but was still forechecking hard and creating chances, which is all you should expect from a 4th line RW, anyhow. I expect Klinkhammer will fall into the same habit, but is a LW which is considerably less valuable to Phoenix at the moment. All of Torres (LHS, LW), Chipchura (LHS, LW) and Bissonnette (LHS, LW) are playing well right now, and all are 4th line players. Same goes for Klinkhammer (LHS, LW). So why waive Johnson now? Me, I'd give Klinkhammer a few more games to see if he can keep it up. If not, he's the one who should be demoted, and not Johnson.

I gotta say I was pretty impressed with Johnson when the Oilers played the coyotes last. He was a beast on the forecheck.
