I feel bad that Boults has to get waived, as I know he brings more to the game than he showed in this season so far, and had tough luck with breaking his fist on a guys face early in the season..missing some time to make more of a impact.
That being said, on this NJD team which is now looking pretty deep on offense (ie, Zajac is still out, and you have Josefson on the 4th line, and Carter is back) the writing on the wall for both him and Cam.
If I had a personal choice in the matter, I would keep Eric Boulton over Cam, because his hockey skills are far superior, but as lame as it sounds, Lou and/or the lockeroom must see something in Cam that goes way beyond his lack of actual hockey skills on the ice plus he's on a two-way contract. They know better.
Doesn't mean he's off the team, technically... but it looks like Cam won over the tough guy job.
I'm finding it hard to find an enforcer who isn't great for a locker room.
All you do is fight while playing 40 games a season and you're a Richard so all your teammates hate you too? Aver...ah, he doesn't fight.

Mine too. No one can score an empty net goal like he can

If Boult gets claimed, good for him and he might get a chance to play. Cam probably would not get claimed, no need for him in ALB and he knows he's going to sit most nights and is ok with it. Perhaps, more of a favor to EB and another roster spot opens up for Englebert Humperdink or Jarret Stoll.
