if he can actually fully recover, I'd take him back

Can we please waive Shelly already. What a waste of space he is. I hate Dubinsky and the Rangers but I think he nailed that one on the head. Shelly is a terrible hockey player.

Once healthy he probably will get waived again. I believe he stated that he would want to still play. Maybe they can release him if he thinks he has an opportunity some where else if he goes unclaimed?

If he can be completely healthy I'd have him. If not...eh.

Only if his shoulders can hold up to take faceoffs...otherwise we are doing fine without him. I'd want him back on the dot if he could do it still though.

You wouldn't want to have him as our 3rd 4th line winger?

Talbot-Couturier-Betts? Would be one of the best 4th lines in hockey

Exactly! Betts is a penalty killing specialist which makes him a perfect fit for this role on paper.

But nobody knows if he can keep up with the speed of his linemates and if his body allows him to stay in the lineup for longer stretches. At least he would be playing more minutes than Shelley anyway.

Was always a Betts fan. Was a lot more upset with him being waived than Nogoal. A healthy Betts would be a great addition.

I saw somewhere that we could play him in Adirondack all year and then call him up in the playoffs, since there is no salary cap onec the regular season ends. Sounds like a great idea to me.
