That's just it. That line is the question mark. If it doesn't work then Briere will replace Knuble on the top line.

They're still both pass first mentally. It'll be interesting, who knows if they will really be the lines.

Sigh... If Ossi gets claimed Im gonna miss him. And here I was hoping we would sign him for 2 more years or something (before he became our 7th). He should be playing over Alberts but whatever.

I'll be shocked if he doesn't get claimed. Anyone should be playing over Alberts...

Vancouver could use a solid 7th defenseman with the present uselessness of Rob Davison. Although I doubt he drops far enough for Gillis to pick Vaananen up, I hope he puts in a claim.

All these players waived,,,,is room being made for Jay-bo
Nope. This barely gives the Flyers enough room to bring Briere back. If room was being made for J-Bo you'd see someone like Lupul or Jones on the move in addition to metro and ossi being waived.

At only $1,000,000, I could see a potential claim on Vaananen. Doubt it, though.

You could potentially bring them back for the playoffs.

If Vaananen can skate, I'll take him opposite Hamhuis over Zanon.

I wonder if the Avs might take Ossi back. They are rumored to be moving some defenseman soon (Leopold, Clark, Salei), so they will need a warm body to finish the season.

I could see the Canucks putting claims in on both Metropolit and Vaananen.

Wouldn't be a bit surprised if Slats picked up Vaananen.

Here comes Danny.

I am disappointed about Vaananen because i still think he his a better option than Alberts. Looks like Powe will be replacing Metro on the 4th line.

maybe but then they would have to move Kalinin...........at this point just make changes and get new blood in for NYR

Metropolit is pretty good for a team needing a 4th liner too

We've been saying it all along, that we are only a few small moves from getting Briere back into the lineup.

Is Metropolit good on faceoffs? If so EDM jumps on him.

I imagine that salary would be getting cleared at the same time that the J-Bo trade was going through. They're not going to clear the salary first and then risk not getting him.

No he sucks at faceoffs. He has good stickhandling skills though. He would have alot more points if he could be a better finisher.

I feel exactly the same about this. IMO Powe and Metro are right now interchangable except for their salaries.

Metro seems like aphysical, hard nose player who can pot a goal, or two, so I wouldn't be surprised if Montréal got him, before letting other players go. Maybe before a trade of Laraque.

I'd so prefer Scott Upshall, though.
