Halpern placed on waivers by NYR. AHL Whale has game tonight, so perhaps a recall tmw. Or if Asham ready could take that spot v Wash on Sun.

As a 3rd line Center. Torts didn't want to put pressure on him yet, that's why he was putting him on the wing.

With current pieces, it would mean handing 3C responsibilites to Miller, putting Boyle on the 4th line, and bringing Asham back into the fold.

Basically, rearranging deck chairs on the titanic. Im hoping theres some more reasoning behind it.

Was reading too fast, my fault.

Halpern will be a free agent this summer. Perhaps a contender will claim him. Frees up a contract. Bickel is signed for next season.

Anyway, I don't see why the pieces need to be rearranged as you are all speculating...

Kreider - Boyle - Miller
Pyatt - Powe - Asham

Damn, I liked him as a solid bottom line center. No doubt this is clearing space for a move, or a Zucc signing.

I guess Boyle plays 3rd and 4th line center now

Honestly, seems like they're making space for a contract. I'd rather Asham be waived.

How would this have any thing to do with Asham? He's already on the roster isn't he?

Newbury up to play with Kreider and miller. Boyle moved to 4th. Dont forget how much Kreider praised how it was playing on Newbury's line for whale

They have (3) centers as it is. Why move a guy who is good defensively, good on the PK, has experience and has good speed? Confused.

Yes, thats a great reason to have an all AHL 3rd line.

If that's the reason there should be an angry mob at the next game

Considering Tors saying they need help with PP i wouldnt be surprised if its to clear a spot for Zuccarello.
Then again, with this team ... who the hell knows what they are thinking

There should be a angry mob at every game for the way some of these guys are playing(Richards) and the lack of offensive creativity this coaching staff has. I didnt say i wanted Newbury up just what i was speculating

Makes absolutely no sense.

(and I use the term loosely because I dont think Halpern has been particularly good - but he has been serviceable)

Who knows - maybe a trade for another bottom 6 center is in the works.
Waiving Bickel or Gilroy works if you're looking to clear a roster spot to open up room under the 23 man limit.

But if your goal is to clear a CONTRACT under the 50 contract limit, they aren't options because they'll simply clear and you're still stuck at the same 49 contracts.

If you're trying to create room either to open up space for a college FA signing or for a 1-for-multiple trade, you need to waive someone who you know will get claimed - and therefore subtracted from your contract count.

It clears a contract so that's the mindset. This is assuming Halpern gets picked and really he should at his price and experience.

For now the bottom 6 like you say can roll with
Pyatt, Miller, Kreider
Powe, Boyle, Asham

they could sign Zuccarello........and dont say he stinks , he's a midget, this team cant score at all and atleast that kid has moves

I remember Sather waiving Voros, Rissmiller all of those bums right before the deadline as a way to clear a roster spot

Gilroy and Bickel will be waived at some point

Unless its to clear a spot, I don't get it. I'd take Crabb though. I'd even take Lee.

Didn't say you were, I was kinda hypothetically speaking. No offense meant .
