Colton, congrats on your Matt Foy-like career with the organization, even though you didn't even match his stellar numbers.
Even though he's been terrible and most of the time doesn't seem to have any hockey sense, I can see some team taking a flyer on him. At least for a few weeks, Eddy just needs bodies to suit up, so I can see them putting in a claim.
The kid just never had it. All the raw tools of size, speed, and strength but no mental gifts. I thought Gillies could at least be a tweener 3rd/4th liners who could spark the team with hits and speed, but clearly the kid is to timid and not smart enough for the NHL. I honestly still think if they told him to put on weight and learn how to fight he could easily replace Staubitz..
Guys in the waivers thread all seem to want to claim him, especially Oilers and Habs fans. I could see him working out with the Habs since they're so small (although the Cammi trade changed a little of that).
