Daigle...Anyone?

Why not.

I know been there done that but seriously this guy is alot better of a player know has speed, has skill, and played in a good defensive system in Minnesota.

Surely he has more talent then anyone not named Foresberg,Gagne or
Handzus. If we claim him on waivers don't we only pay half his salary (which I don't think is very high to begin with). If that is the case I say do it. We can pick up a roster player with skill and not touch our roster players.

Thoughts anyone.

Rather not have a guy who is lazy and doesn't play defense.

That's past reputation. In some of the games I have seen over the last few years he looks to be more motivated.

You should have tried watching him play in Minnesota before making such a declaratory statement that isn't true.




Generic remark when Daigle's name comes up.

Daigle makes $850,000 this season, so there is about $200,000 left on his contract. I wouldn't want to eat up any of the Flyers' cap space for Daigle but I wouldn't mind if they picked him up and placed someone else on waivers at the same time. Savage isn't quite enough as he is at $500,000 which leaves the obvious Brashear.

Waive/Demote Brashear to claim Daigle, done and done in my books.

Clarke can wipe his behind with $200K in cap space.

Reading the Wild's boards about him, it sounds like Daigle has regressed back to his lazy self on both offense and defense. 5 goals and 23 assists in 46 games doesn't impress me all that much.

His numbers were up before because the Wild had tough injuries, Gaborik missed almost half of the season, and Daigle was getting PP time.

28 points for a guy who would be on our 4th line is OK by me...and he can walk in the off-season.

So, what you are saying is that Daigle's numbers were inflated earlier in the season when he had the likes of Gaborik on his line and once Gaborik went down with injury his production ceased?

Sorry, but I'm not interested. I'd rather see the Flyers recall Eager or Gratton to play on the 4th line than sign the Daigle. At least those guys play with energy on every shift they play on. Daigle would just sulk on the 4th line.

Disregard my preference to call up Josh Gratton. From what I understand, he will miss the remainder of the season with an infection that occured after his knee surgery.

That being said, I'd much rather give a roster spot to Ben Eager than the Daigle.

agreed, the last thing we need is a soft forward like Daigle.
Pass

No, he wouldn't. In fact, I think he would be considerably worse.

Doesn't the fact that no other team has claimed the Daigle as of yet say something?

I wouldn't mind seeing Daigle instead of Savage. What has Savage done to earn his salary this year that Daigle hasn't?
Maybe put Daigle on a line with Kapanen and Richards and watch them go, all 3 can fly.
Ben Eager also HAS to play on the big team from now on, Philly needs his energy.

it's a gamble, but a cheap gamble...it shouldn't preclude any other deals that Clarke was thinking of...IMO, pick him up and see if he plays rejuvinated, if not, send him across the parking lot, no harm done than a miniscule loss of cap space

Sure. Anyone considering bringing that dog back must have lost their memory due to drug abuse. The guy has natural talent for sure, but he has no drive, is lazy, and brings nothing when it comes to the intagibles you look for when trying to add players for a potential cup run. I see players like Turner Stevenson and Brian Savage taking some heat on this and other forums, but come playoff time, you'll be glad those guys are here. It's a whole different game then.

Past reputation man...Have you seen him play the last few years. After he realised he couldn't become an actor in Hollywood he has played alot better then his first few years in the league.

Savage is not even close to Daigle...

I have no idea why he is even on this club. He is horrible, he can't shoot the puck if his life depended on it. I am not saying Daigle is the answer but surely at his salary he is better option then a few guys on our roster.

I hear Cerkawski is on waivers and at a salary of $500,000. How about him instead of Daigle? He's cheaper and has also flopped after looking like he could really do something.

No thanks. If the Leafs don't even want him after their season, why would we want him?
