That could make some sense. What would happen with Laughton? Move to wing? Sent back down?

Ah, okay. If Mez is being moved now though, what was the point of moving Hall and Gervais? Moving Mezsaros provides about 2.5 in cap space provided no one is coming back. Was it just as a precaution in case the Mez deal falls through?

Not really a big fan of Mitchell, I could live with the deal though. Just don't like the thought of him on our third line.

Dumb comparison. $3.1n of his salary would still be on the cap.

I'm really pissed about Hall being waived. I could go into why but it's obvious. It's not just Hall either it's just the perpetuation of **** ups by management and it's so awesome.

Rinaldo - Mitchell - xxx

Laughton should not be in the lineup, esp as a 4th line C. He hasn't impressed at all.

If it's for Mitchell, he would take Hall's spot.

No idea about Gervais. If a move occurs, we'll just have to see what plays out.

He might not even be claimed by another team.

Tweet is no longer up, maybe he was told to delete it. Anyway, I don't think the article mentioned him by name, it is was just about the Flyers moving a d-man which makes the situation more curious. Maybe he's aware of some interest from the Flyers side.

Why waive Meszaros if you can trade him?

For a 7th rounder?

Any GM would be out of their mind to offer something of any sort of value for mez.

I don't think Laughton goes back to juniors. Waiving Hall pretty much means he is here for good I think.

Not true. Moderate risk (just money as most teams aren't that close to the cap) and moderate reward. It's not gonna be anything significant but value is a relative term. A 3rd/4th NHL caliber grinder is what management seems to be looking for. I'd think a team would be willing to make a deal around something like that.

Yeah he will be, I just think he shouldn't be.

This, I saw it myself. Shortly after posting about it here it was removed. I commented on just that at the top of this page..

Greg Sherman generally is out of his mind, so give credit where credit is due.
