Yes, but we also have scratched players like Christensen and White who are available to play (if Christensen is cleared to play from his minor injury) along with MZA in Hartford.

EDIT- For anybody who is interested Drury is out for 6 weeks (re-broke finger), Gaborik is out for 2-3 (separated shoulder) and Prospal is out indefinitely and will require knee surgery.

Gaborik is out 2 to 3 weeks with a shoulder injury.

Drury is out 6 weeks from re-fracturing his finger.

Prospal is going to have surgery on his knee (I think it was his knee) and is probably out for the season.

That really is surprising. Cheap, young, talented winger... there are 10 teams I can name off the top of my head that could use that type of player.

A 25 year old that put up 2 goals in 44 games last year, is it really that surprising he can't make anyones top 6 for now (he would be useless on the bottom 6 and cannot be sent to another teams AHL team)?

No one on waivers today. Brunnstrom and Valabik clear waivers.

HF should just stop prognosticating the waiver wire.

Yeah you have to be pretty special to get picked up on waivers these days.

It's the same song and dance every year. A "surprising" or "huh" player ends up on waivers, and a million people on HF think they're going to be claimed. Time and time again, 99% of players, regardless of name recognition, have passed through.

Valabik is just not a good player, and even though I have an extra special hate for his player since he was in Kitchener, it was pretty easy to see that with his skating he needed so much work to progress to an NHL regular.

Brunnstrom is still living off of half a good SEL season, a hockey news article, and a first game hat trick. He may be NHL caliber, but he's a tweener. Not quite good enough for a Top 6 role, too soft for a bottom six role. He went from Div 1, to SEL, to NHL in three seasons. It's an impressive growth pattern, but when he hadn't proven much in the SEL to begin with, it seemed too good to be true. Maybe he'll get another shot.

Although I'm sure Grabner's claiming got people's hopes up.

wow, Im still trying to forget Fab Brunn's first NHL game, he killed us with a hat trick if I remember correctly. I thought he was for sure going to be a star.

Not that he couldnt still but Im suprised at his career path so far

Wow. Can't believe Brunstrom went through waivers. He'll be gone on re-entry if they try to call him up...

Unless someone gets injured and his services are required again, I wouldn't be surprised if he spends the whole season down there.

I think Atlanta will also take this approach with Valabik.
He has missed a lot a game time over the past few seasons and needs to play.

I have to wonder if the Isles hadn't grabbed Grabner, if they'd have picked up Brunnstrom. No complaints about Grabs, as the Isles needed his speed (which he's used nicely to backcheck), but he's never put up 17 goals in a season, and Brunnstrom has.
