Okay cool, another free shot at a 2nd pairing LD. Don't mess this up like you did Smid.

Don't get overly excited about Klesla. There is no way he gets past Oilers and Islanders.

Told you guys.

Anyways, you have to have the cap space free, cannot claim then clear space.

I also agree that Erat is far harder to play against than some guys who get more time ahead of him.

I also think we need more skill in the top 6. Kuznetsov should help with that tho.
It hasn't executed well because he has no idea how to do it. GMGM simply does not understand roster composition in any capacity. He does not think of how players think together, what identity lines could have. He sees a guy with some NHL 13 specs and maybe a reputation, goes out and gets him, plugs him into the roster and learns nothing when that guy fails. And he does not even know how his coaches see particular players

For example, if you wanted to make a tough to play against roster this year.

- acquire Dave Bolland
- Sign Matt Cooke
- Sign Lapierre
- trade for Steve Downie
- trade for Ladislav Smid
- get Klesla


Cooke Bolland Downie
Chimera Lapierre Wilson
Latta Enforcer (cause by god we'd need one)

Alzner Carlson
Smid Orlov
Klesla Green/someone tougher to play against than Green who has some PMD skill.
That's tough to play against. Pain in the ass tough. Roll that first 5 minutes of a game and you have Crosby running around crying the next 55 instead of playing hockey.

You're right, no good player has ever been waived and proceed to be good somewhere else.

Your hockey insight just never ceases to amaze.

Urbom was waived and he's been very good for us. Hilarious, indeed.

This. Neuvirth isn't even a good back up, let alone a good starter.

Thats garbage. He's a good goalie and has already carried the load for an entire season and showed well. He's still very young for a goalie too.

Guys like Klesla can actually be traded easier than getting claimed on waivers in a salary cap world where many teams would have to send salary back in order to make room for a player.

Or just looking back off the top of my head

Jokinen (~PPG with the pens)
Peverley
Briere
Bryzgalov (when he was good)
St. Louis
Souray
Sharp (pretty sure but could have just been dumped)

GMGM is the King of Dumpster Diving. He'll try to get in on this for sure.

There's a chance you see him clear and then get traded with minor salary coming back or being retained like with Jokinen. Waiving him was prob easier than making 30 phone calls.

I still don't get the move from a Phoenix perspective. By all accounts, he's playing well when on the ice. There's no risk of exceeding the Cap.

The only thing that would make sense is they're trying to make salary room in their internal budget for an addition.

It's a mystery why they couldn't get at least a modest future for him from somebody.

Looking at teams with semi-expendable $~4M defensemen they're almost all within the Metro division (Gleason, Volchenkov, Meszaros). There aren't all that many good fits out there, assuming that's the sort of deal that will have to be made. I wouldn't doubt having to waive Erat at some point, which I guess Erat would agree to.

This is what I see happening.

I bet there are teams interested who just don't have the cap space to make it happen. If they could send some back then they'd be willing to part with a pick or player to make it happen.

This isn't fantasy hockey. You don't waive players just because you are lazy.

He will be claimed, so many teams need defensive help. Most of them have cap left aswell.

You know whats funny?

I was one of the few who supported MP85 the whole way thru his time here even suggesting we should give him a long look at 2C. Most disagreed and wanted him gone.

When we got rid of him its then proof GMGM is an idiot when the very same posters didn't want MP to begin with.

I'm glad he is doing well and that BB is doing well.
