How surprising, a player said something politically correct on his teams official website.

The only difference is based on play this time he means it.

Some solid proof of this would be nice. I find it hard to believe that this actually happened, yet TSN & co. are passing up a chance to laugh at Tampa (again). They feeling charitable or something? Something more substantial than one guy saying he heard this would be nice.

It is common knowledge that can be read by any fool under the cba agreement for the NHL.

That makes so much more sense.

There is no way he would of went unclaimed.

4 points in 3 games and playing like an allstar.

Being placed on waivers without actually going on waivers really woke him up.

EDIT to update new points total.

Except we're not debating the rules of the CBA. Since none of us have seen the paperwork and the time that it was submitted, we're debating whether or not this actually happened, nothing said "the NHL denied Tampas waiver of Jussi Jokinen as it was submitted after the roster freeze" or anything of the like, just a little clip on TV of someone going "yep didn't work, bye!"... is this making sense now?

Lying to your players may yield short term results...but in the long run it only hurts the organization (if it can possibly have a worse reputation amongst players)
