Should the Leafs be active in the waiver wire??

I got this from today via TSN .

Quote:
Alexander Karpovtsev’s day's with the Florida Panthers may be over.

Sources tell TSN the veteran Russian defenceman has been put on waivers by the NHL team, but since he’s only dressed for five of the Panthers’ games this season (zero points, minus-2), it’s doubtful anyone will put in a claim on the oft-injured 35-year-old blueliner who is making $760,000 on a one-way contract.
Does Potsy have any value to the Leafs at $760k to help the defense out ??. While he is injury prone he is somewhat fearless as a shot blocker etc. Would he improve the defense overall ?? I personally am not a fan .. but

at the end it also said

Quote:
Meanwhile, sources say the Pittsburgh Penguins have put three players - forwards Rico Fata and Konstantin Koltsov and defenceman Rob Scuderi - on waivers. Teams have until noon Tuesday to claim them or they can be assigned to the minors
The name that caught my eye was 24 year of Koltsov here .. He was former 1st rounder by the Pens in 1999

Here is his profile

Is this an opportunity to drop a Chewy type and add some youth to the team?

I haven't seen Potsi since he was with us. I'd rather trade him for Khavanov than pick him up. I figure if he gets injured, it gives our younger players a chance (who will likely be as good as Khavanov) and if he stays healthy, should be a good fill-in. His problem was always injuries from what I saw. I wouldn't mind getting Koltsov if we didn't have a more proven scorer in Chow sitting on the bench.

Not interested- these guys are garbage for the most part.

The only one that I find mildly intriguing is Koltsov but even then I don't think I'd pick him. Personally I think the waiver wire is exactly where these players belong.

Fair enough ..

but then again we have some waiver wire material ourselves and it becomes a question if their crap has more value then our own at times to me anyways ..

I would jump at fata, a speedy player who can be smart in his own end.
For the leafs who strugle with defense, fata would be a welcome addition.

Karpotsev would make me denounce my leafs allegience, he's absolutly worthless.

Koltsov i heard alot of hype about but havent watched him play.

Hell no Krapotsev, been there done that.

I think Koltsov could be a good fit though. He can play either wing, adds speed, and has a great shot.

If we dump a Chad Kilger from the active roster to give a Koltsov a try .. Is it really a high risk move .. What happens is Lindros and him click and we get production and at only 24 its reasonable to expect some upside perhaps ..

Worst case scenario we try him for a month, and if it doesn't work out put him on waivers and try anther waiver wire player instead ..

Here is where my Fav GRASS IN NOT ALWAYS GREENER speech doesn't seem to apply

Sure, he is faster than wilm.

If not him, belak or czer, whoever...keep him with the marlies, he wouldn't be a waiver waste, thats for sure.

Depends what his contract status is, remember he WAS traded for Jagr.

Kilger has by far earned his keep on this team, he reminds me of the bill berg type role we had with the 92-93 team...not as flashy as a koltsov could be but comes to play EVERY shift.

I've had enough experiments lately, come to think of it, lets leave the current unit in tact for this year and see how they shake out. Scratch my call for rico fata, i just have a soft spot for him because i picked him in the fantasy draft.

I'll keep editing this during the show to add more

- O'Neill being examined for "upper body" injury. He's still getting therapy on his shoulder

- As we all know, McCabe named Offensive player of the week.

- Sykora actively being shopped around the league

- "Penalty Shots are like Porn, sure it peaks your interest, but how much can you watch?!" - Nick Kyperos

Karpotsev

Koltsov might be an interesting pickup though.

Yep, thats about it. If we had room up front I'd pick up Koltsov, but we don't, and I wouldn't.

The Leafs SHOULD put in a claim for Fata. By no means am I saying that he will definately be a full-time player, but what is the main issue plaguing the leafs this season? TEAM SPEED!!!

Now, Rico may have hands of stone, but he is an absolutely beautiful skater. When he can be picked up for virtually nothing (not counting the salary cap issues), why not give him a shot? He could be a very valuable addition.

We are what, 1/4 of the way through the season? Just because one feels that a player such as Chad Kilger (who by the way I don't mind) has earned his spot, and just because the leafs are on a roll right now, that does not mean that the team stops trying to make additions in order to improve themselves. Fata, in my opinion, is the player I would take a shot on, but that's just my opinion and what do I know?

One reason to not pick him up: we'd need to waive someone else.

Fata's crap. Sure he's a fast skater but otherwise he's useless and I think Craig Johnson last season really illustrated that wheels alone aren't of much use. Then again Johnson could play defense.

No sense in acquiring any of these guys. The Leafs already have a full roster & none of these players would be upgrades to the team.

I don't think constantly moving players around is good for a team.
