every time a guy like this gets waived people always say they will be claimed and then they clear.

Brian Lee has cleared waivers. He will be kept here for the moment.

I'm a tad surprised. No team claimed Brian Lee.


Maybe a team is interested in him, but wants to send some salary the other way...

very surprised, I'm very surprised the Isle's didn't bite, hell I'm kind of surprised the Shark's didn't. Makes me think there are major behind the scenes issues that all the GM's know about it and want no part of.

I usually don't think guys will be picked up, but I did in this case.

This shouldn't be a shocking to anyone with 1/2 a brain who has actually watched him play.

Seems that when it comes to players on waivers, there's a general expectation that if the player is at least marginally better than another team's 4th liner/3rd-pairing defenceman, he will be picked up since it seems like such an obvious way to improve your team without cost.

However, I think some people on here seem to underestimate the merits of team cohesion. It wouldn't be a popular move in the dressing room if a popular, if unskilled, player is dumped so the team can add the great talents of Brian ****ing Lee haha. Perhaps the GM doesn't think the $50,000 waiver claim cost (I think that's it?) isn't worth, plus cap considerations...

(for the record, I kind of did expect Lee to be picked up haha, though I honestly haven't paid much attention to his career, so what do I know)

Contract is likely a relevant factor in his case too. Maybe you gamble on a guy with a 1-year 1-way deal, but if Lee bombs (as his play thus far suggests he would), you don't want to be stuck with that 2nd year. Real money is real in the NHL.

Agreed. The one-way contract is an issue, along with being on contract for next season one-way too.

two-way contract he would have been claimed.

He's probably more valuable after he's cleared waivers and be assigned to the minors. I wouldn't be surprised to see someone trade for him now.

I really didn't get the high frequency of posts like this.

Typical HF, won't even let a guy bust, Lee has reached eternal prospect status here apparently.

Oh my god... Some people are helpless.

I'll spell it out for you: He ****ing sucks, and he's on a 1-way contract for this season and next.
