On waivers today: Trevor Smith (TOR), Jake Dowell (MIN), Corey Potter (EDM), Joe Corvo and Cory Conacher (OTT), Derek Smith (CGY) plus...
Ridiculous...

Not surprised about Corvo though.

Conacher/Corvo

Figured a new thread was worthy. Odd move to put Conacher on waivers. I'm guessing they're clearing room for someone. Only way to explain this move. Even then. Not even a third round pick for the kid? Nothing?

Don't mind these moves, obviously we lost the Bishop trade but right now Conacher not helping much.

Weird that they would do this at this time.....Wonder if they are trying to clear up roster space?

Leaf fan here. I was surprised to see Conacher on waivers. Has he really played that poorly?

Murray was never going to get much for Bishop anyways. Everyone knew the Sens had to let him go in the offseason.

Anyways Conacher being waived probably means either Prince is being called up, or that they're about to trade a bunch of prospects for a LW.

That will go down as one of the worst trades in Sens history. Gave Bishop away. BM better make up for that screw up. Trade away a star goalie for a guy who is 120 lbs.

Why bother waiving Conacher? What exactly is the point?

I really hope Murray knows what hes doing and Conacher clears to the AHL.

I'm pretty sure the point is to send him to Binghamton.

Either way, the team plans on calling someone up to take his spot or completing a trade for a forward.

It sucks that Murray lost the Bishop trade, but as a GM, you can't keep someone around that doesn't fit (his opinion) just to justify a trade you made.

If a top six forward isn't coming here today with term, I'm going to be even more mad.

I would've waived Condra, Greening, or even Milan ****ing Michalek considering contract before Cony.

not surprised. conacher was only good early last season in tampa and already slowed down before we aquired him. never really fit a scoring role.

hoffmann will most likely be better anyway.

Didn't Philly offer us a 2nd and a player for Bishop, that is looking pretty good right now...

Pens fan here, we just waived freaking Chuck Kobasew. I don't know how Craig Adams is on an NHL roster and Conacher isn't. I mean... I haven't watched many Sens games but this seems weird to me. Do you guys think he'll get picked up by another team?

Weird move, but I'm sure Murray knows what he's doing.

This is a gift for Tim Murray - Buffalo has a good chance of claiming him for nothing. Tim wioll return the favour and give us a great deal on Stewart. You heard it here first.

Does Buffalo have the first claim? Maybe something shady is going on here with the Murray's....maybe a hint hint wink wink thing as an extra asset in a deal.
