According to McKenzie's twitter, Rivet likely requested to be put on waivers in the hopes of being claimed and being able to play somewhere else. We Sabres fans are almost sure that Regier tried to trade him for weeks and found no takers, so now they're trying to find him a home via the waiver wire. If Craig wants to play, then I hope he can do that, even if it means seeing him leave. I support what he wants and he's one of the most classy, well-respected guys in the league and if we're indeed trying to find someone to take him, then I think that's a class act by us to a classy player like him. Treating your players right is the way to go.

I won't change my username. It'll provide me with memories 10-20 years from now when I'm on HF. I'll remember admiring a true warrior and class act.

That all seems to make sense to me.

A lot like the Zherdev situation in the sense that no trades were available, so waiver wire to try to re-home the player, but for VERY different reasons.

Didn't know Rivet was so well thought of as a person until this entire thread, and it seems a shame he lost the edge to continue in Buffalo.

I completely agree that you have to treat your players right. It's absolutely the way to do business, especially such a long time servant like that.

So, considering your love for Rivet, who do you hope picks him up? And who would you hate to see him playing for?! (not including divisional rivals, as that is a given)

Pretty funny how basically a fan of every team in the league has put in hopes Zherdev will be claimed by their team.

Seems like everyone wants Zherdev. So naturally he will pass through waiver untouched

I hope I'm not wrong, haha, but Zherdev is exactly the kind of guy that Burke has been trying to get rid of over the past couple years. Why don't people get that? lol

I could see the Rangers claiming Rivet. I know his play has tailed off a bit but he could be any worse than Gilroy or Del Zottos defensive play atm.

Yeah but he doesnt automatically get send down just because he is waived. He has 30days to report before it expires. The Rangers did it with Todd White about 4 times this year. Waived him hoping some one claims him but kept him on the main roster as a press box player.

Makes sense, Ottawa is absolutely depleted after trades/injuries. They need bodies to fill out sweaters.
