Waived - Gary Roberts

Reported by Darren Dreger (TSN). Still looking for a link.

Apparently we couldn't get any takers, which surprises me.

thread on the trade forum was just locked, because it didn't have a link. so hopefully it's not true. I can't see him just being waived. Even if you can't trade him for what you want, we can still hold onto him until the end of the season when he retires.

Thanks for the link, yeah it looks confirmed.

I wonder if this is one of those things where we might have to take salary back to get a pick for him if he clears... ala Jussi Jokinen.

Time will tell.

Oh well, in best case it would been a 5th to 7th rounder for him, not the end of the world.

If we're going to waive Roberts, we have to waive Malik too, right? A guy can dream...

Roberts getting a chance to help a team in the playoffs is the most improtant thing. You see guys like Morrison, Satan, Voros, Priessing etc. were also waived today, so it must be the truly unwanted that was waived today.

As injury depleted as our blueline is, its no surprise Malik hasn't been waived yet. I'd like to pickup Reitz from NYR and then dump Malik.

Think we should all get a clue and remember most of our players aren't worth much. Being on a bad team does that.

Agreed, the only one who's going to bring back anything of value will be Recchi. Let's hope for an encore of Sunday.

Its kind of unsettling that the Bolts management didn't have the common decency to notify Roberts he was placed on waivers. The fact that it was his brother who heard it on the radio that told Roberts about the news...I mean thats just not right.

He knew there was a definite possibility he wouldn't be with the team after the deadline. He's acknowledged that and accepted it.
