The Lehoux/Kolanos saga

Kolanos was waived by the Oilers and re-claimed by the Coyotes [EDIT: on Monday... thanks for making me feel dumb, KB ]. This completes a circle of sorts:

Kings waive Lehoux
Coyotes claim Lehoux
Coyotes waive Kolanos
Oilers claim Kolanos
Coyotes waive Lehoux
Kings claim Lehoux
Oilers waive Kolanos
Coyotes claim Kolanos

...and all parties are right back to where they started two months ago

And Lehoux and Kolanos have seen a bit more of the world.

Oh, you're right. I neglected to check the date. Still, better late than never. That's the unofficial Postal slogan.

Ya know, whenever I say something uncontroversial around here, someone comes along and quickly makes me regret it. I'll think I'll just stick to rubbing people the wrong way from now on . I tried, Quattro; I really tried

So it pretty much ends up like this: the Coyotes get Lehoux, and waive Kolanos and he is claimed. Lehoux then has to be placed on waivers, but he is claimed. Kolanos has to be placed on waivers, but then is claimed by Phoenix.
So, all and all, this basically says to Kolanos, "Hey we had to put the center we claimed off waivers, that gave us the decision to put you on waivers, on waivers but he was claimed off waivers, so we decided 'hey we need another young center' so we claimed you off waivers."

That, and "now get with the program, stop thinking you're a #1 NHL centre, quit with the sulking, and prove you can play at the AHL level before you get another chance with the Coyotes or you'll end your career in Europe."

I think that sums it up.

Okay, I missed that part. I was thinking more along the lines of them saying, "But hey, you were definately our first choice."

I posted to the thread on the other board and then thought that folks here might find it interesting/amusing, as well. What's your problem? The Grinch swipe your Tumble Time Tigger?
