Grubauer's not on waivers, he was sent straight down to Hershey

Islanders beat writer was speculating that Oleksy fits the Islanders needs: cheap, gritty and right-handed. The other aspect is cost-controlled, as he's under contract for another season after this one on a 2-way deal worth under $600k.

I like Oleksy. Don't know why the Caps are toying around with him.

Isles should claim him and play him.

I've suggested elsewhere that Calgary should claim Oleksy and use him to fill a roster spot and free up a defenseman to be traded for picks, prospects, whatever.

I could see the Jets claiming him. We all know Chevy loves waiver claims and with Clitsome out for year and Buff moved to forward, we're thin on defense.

Right now our #4, #5 and #6 defensemen are Mark Stuart, Adam Party and Keaton Ellerby.

As a Caps fan, I'm disappointed to see Oleksy put on waivers and am surprised he has been picked up yet. He's got two years left on a league minimum contract and he is a gritty 3rd pairing D-man. He will never compete for a Norris trophy, but he's definitely a heart-and-soul kind of guy. Brings energy and a big right hook to any lineup.

If you're talking about waivers it won't be announced until noon EST today whether or not he's been claimed.

If HF thinks someone is getting claimed, it's pretty much a guarantee they'll clear.

I wonder if there's going to be a "future-consideration" type trade involving Oleksy here shortly. How many GM's didn't even bother filing a claim because they thought he would be gone to one of the teams in the top five on the waiver priority list? And of those GMs who needs defensive depth?

If that's actually the case then those GMs are either ******** or really lazy.

Teams dont have room this year. It's as simple as that.

Jeffrey looked like a solid bottom 6 six utility guy, but his knee injury really derailed hie career.

I'd say that there's a 99.9% chance that this didn't happen.
