The Jackets are missing Jan Hejda. Only one defenseman down, but he's a big one. We've slumped since he went down, even after we got Commodore back.

7th defenseman Mathieu Roy was just sent down to Syracuse & he hasn't played all that badly this season. IMO, this means that either:
-Hejda, said to miss 4 to 6 weeks, is about to come back surprisingly early (originally speculated on by Aaron Portzline), or (my strange feeling)
-Some kind of move is about to be made in CBJ land.

But I doubt he'll be claimed.
Capitals don't have cap room, and they already have plenty of guys who can't play defense.

My thought in regards to Holmgren's latest decision...

Randy Jones being re-called is a fail so ****ing epic, it just might be full of win.

I am pretty sure he will get picked up by someone for half the cost and it screws Philly out of some cap room

I am going to guess the Devils with White out

Cap space isn't an issue for Philly.

I do not think Jones will get picked up.

Devils should take their chances with Lukovich. He used to play for them at one point. I think he is waived and his salary is about 1.6.

Too late with respect to Lukowich. He's already passed thru waivers a while back. I'd say there's zero chance of the Canucks bringing him up via re-entry waivers. He's overpaid at $1.6 million but not at $800K.

Wow, he didn't make it far. 5th waiver priority took him.

I'm surprised he was even claimed at all, personally.

The Kings were rumored to be asking for a D-man in the Frolov trade nogotiations and the Kings have been using forwards (Williams and Stoll) to play the Point on the PP.

I would say he is likely an upgrade over Harrold and Martinez

gives them depth too and they have cap space no?

I'm just happy this hits the Flyers on the cap

He is pretty good D man for 1.3 Million
Another ****ing stupid move by the Flyers, Stevens NEEDS to be fired and Holmer is also making a case for himself

Guess for DL, getting a Flyer property for half the price is just too great to pass up.

I also don't think we need him. I guess Alec Martinez gets send down, but still I just don't see him breaking top 6 d.

I don't understand this move by the Flyers. I read on hockeybuzz that the Flyers WOULDN'T put him on re-entry unless there was a taker. This doesn't make sense to me at all. That's like saying, I won't drive my car fast unless I get a speeding ticket...makes no sense.

Someone explain this to me.
