He has been fine defensively. This makes little sense unless they're trying to open contracts.

Maybe they need to clear a contract? This is a weird move...

I'm normally not one of those guys, but maybe this leads to another move? Makes no sense if that's not the case. He's been solid. Made that one mistake last night but I sincerely doubt that's why he's waived...

I like Halpern and really don't understand this. Maybe they're expecting Asham back Sunday, will have Miller centering the third line and Boyle the fourth. But why not just scratch him?

He's soft. Doesn't add to the lineup other than the PK. Good guy all around, but isn't stiff enough to add quality minutes. With Crabb on waivers, I would make a claim, unless there's something else in the works.

I don't think this makes sense as a standalone move.

He made a terrible read on the first Panthers goal last night. I'm not nearly as impressed in him as the majority of this board, but I don't see a better #4 center option.

**** that.

Halpern made a bad play yesterday on the PK that led to Campbell's goal. He pinched too far over to Powe's side, but other than that I really liked the play Halpy was showing with Powe on the fourth line.

Sure, the dude doesn't have a goal yet this season, and that's a problem. But waived? I don't know. Can't tell me there's no market out there for a good FO defensive center?

Maybe it's the Voros treatment where he's waived but hangs around? Clearing a contract for a trade? Clearing a contract for Zuccs? Who knows. I liked Halpy's fourth line game.

Now waive Boyle (because I hate him, and would like to watch him rot in CT. Not because I don't think he doesn't have trade value, come on guys, I'm smarter than that )

Oh God "waive Boyle" lol. We can at the minimum get a third for him which is what we paid.

Didn't expect Halps to do anything flashy and he hasn't been waivers bad. The ****s going on.

I find it hard to believe that Halpern doesn't... Even if its just an incredibly bad prospect or pick. He hasn't been great, but he has been a decent to solid fourth liner and pk'er.

Crazy, crazy Rangers management. Richards can **** up every damn time, but Halpern makes 1 bad move and is waived. Ridiculous. He is better than Boyle and even playing better than Richards at the moment. He was solid on the PK as well.

Very odd move. Not that Halpern was on fire or anything, but he was a fine fourth liner.

Has to be apart of a bigger move, right? Otherwise they'd likely just scratch him.

If he gets claimed, does his contract still count against the Rangers' 50 contract limit?

Yeah. Normally, you see guys on waivers and it's clear why they're on waivers. Not the case here. This is a more than serviceable fourth line center who has solid faceoff skills. I will be pretty stunned if he isn't claimed. Something has got to be up.

Until Asham is gone, I don't think we see Haley again this year.
