Brookbank...hehe

Poor, poor guy...but like the article says, for everytime he's claimed he's getting $5000

Quote:
The Florida Panthers have placed Wade Brookbank on waivers, now it looks like Burke is going to put in a claim on Brookbank, as Burke claims that "he is tougher than a night in jail". The lowest team filing the waiver claim gets the player, so if Ottawa wants to steal him from Vancouver, they could get him again. The funniest part of this, is that Brookbank gets $5000 for each time he gets claimed on waivers. Two more times and he makes double his minor league salary of this year. But it looks as though he'll come here, and could be a Canuck before "Guy Lombardo plays tomorrow night.
apparently this is coming from cknw...not sure whether cknw radio, or website...but this is just too funny. Want him back Nashville? Make a claim :p

Or at least let us claim him, play him against Calgary, and then send him to the minors so you guys can get him :p

This is where the waiver wire can actually hurt a player. It was designed to keep a player from rotting in the minors on a deep team, but it has it's flaws.

I think the Preds should acquire him and trade him to Vancouver for futures.

Waivers ain't hurtin Brookbank. He's a goon that is getting 5000$ everytime he gets picked up on waivers.

Latest word from Brian Burke on the radio is that Brookbank is a Canuck again and should stay here.

Stay tuned...
