Every team is waiving similar sorta NHL-ready defensive prospects like Urbom. I'm confident he'll make it through waivers and we'll find out if that's true on Monday.

Not necessarily. I really wouldn't count on Urbom being claimed.

I would say he's the least likely (Aside from Janssen) to get claimed. Nobody really knows who the hell he is, and he's not some former first round pick either.

Sounds like a win to me.

Doubt it. There's nothing special about Urbom. He's a #6 D-man at best right now. It's not really worth the roster spot to claim him for most teams, considering they don't know much about him.

I'm pretty sure the minor league guy was just so we weren't giving them a contract.

He's young, NHL material, and a good deal more promising than Mark Fraser ever was, and look where Fraser is now.

Fraser also went unclaimed off waivers like 15 times.

True enough. I don't think Urbom would get claimed myself, but it's a lot more likely than Fraser getting claimed ever was.

I don't think Urbom would get claimed, because the team that claimed him would have to keep him on the NHL roster or put him back through waivers. I don't think anybody is really hurting for defencemen that badly.

I would prefer to make a trade to make the room for Urbom. But I don't know how likely that is. I'm sure Lou is exploring all options in that regard before waiving Urbom.

If we do pull off a trade, I'm willing to bet Lou does some black magic to safely get Urbom to Albany and call up Gelinas.

I'd rather see Gelly up than Urbom.

Would probably improve our power play too.

That distinction all comes down to waivers. We'll see Gelinas this season, I have no doubt.

No way!! I can't believe we traded for THAT guy!

Our organization has a new official sketchiest member. Matteau and Merrill are choirboys compared to this lowlife.

I wouldn't want to find out whether Urbom gets claimed, he's still too darn young of an asset to waste and defensemen are too rare that I'd think someone would take him unless Lou gets him off on the Butler technicality.

I still think the other shoe has to drop with Fayne eventually, they can't keep putting him on the fourth pairing in practice and have his value drop to nil before he walks this offseason anyway, might as well get something for him.

This guy really takes the cake on sketchiness of guys in our organization.

Looks like I was already beaten to it.


Good thing that dad was not home to "put a bullet between his eyes," or we would have never gotten rid of Barch.

Well, nuts.

I liked Barch. Time to rip yet ANOTHER name of my 22 jersey.

I would have preferred to see CamJam go, but oh well.

I've been a fan of Barch since he played for Dallas.

Haven't you seen me defending the guy on almost every GDT since he came here?

So, no, it's not a joke.

Still, you don't see 22-year old defensemen get cut all that often in a league where guys like Jeff Finger get $5 million deals. He may be nothing special for us considering what's in the pipeline but someone could use him. Teams in our division could use him.

If serious, probably a Kozlov jersey with names taped over it or something.
