A player picked up on waivers cannot be traded for the remainder of that season without his team first offering him (at waiver price) to any other teams which put in a (lower priority unsuccessful) claim when the player was originally claimed.

Zherdev just seems to have a terrible attitude, wouldn't be surprised if no teams wanted to trade for him.

I'd like the Canadiens to take a run at Zherdev. He has played well against us, and brings some additional skill, which our team lacks.

Kotalik even at a 1.5M cap hit I would be surprised if claimed. That extra year is the problem. Kotalik is almost useless.

Now Zherdev should be preparing to pack his bags. I'm almost sure someone claims him. I'd love for the Sabres to put in a claim. Pegula seems to want talent being brought in and while Zherdev isn't the best player we need scoring help badly.

Colliton will clear.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Svatos clear too.

I personally hate that Rivet has been waived. There has to be something going on and they're getting ready for a trade to add someone. The organization was being classy and just letting Craig wait it out so he could retire and remain living in Buffalo without having to move again if he so chose. This makes me think with Pegula allowing us to spend that something is in the works where we flip a pick for someone like in previous years with Moore and Torres. Rivet's just waiting to retire. He's slow and his injuries and his physical gameplay throughout his career have taken their tolls on his body. He'll clear, especially at a 3.5M cap hit. It's a shame to see him go out like this though. It's awful.

I suspect they offered him around in trade and when no takers were found via that route, he asked to be put on the wire to see if anyone wants him.

Z complained to Homer early on he wasn't getting enough ice time.

All this zherdev love is hilarious. He's kovalev with less talent and more attitude problems.

Zherdev is a terrible guy to have in a locker room.

I'm really pissed that Z was able to walk for free. How could Holmgren not have gotten anything for him. It was clear that he didn't want to be part of the team and that this is probably a cap move for another trade, but seriously why waive talented players who would always warrant a return, however minor it may be.

Oh well I guess I'd rather have a player who is useful even when he doesn't have the puck on his stick (Versteeg) over Zherdev anyday

I really don't want Zherdev. That is a big 180 from this summer. Scoring is great but laziness not something we need to foster right now...

Exactly.

He is useless if he doesn't have the puck on his stick. Terrible hockey sense and even worse work ethic.

Despite the fact that Zherdev can be had for free & doesn't have a big cap hit, I'd rather have Kovalev...and I don't want either.

A claimed player can't be traded unless he is first offered to those teams who put in an unsuccessful waiver claim. This rule only applies to this playing season though.

I'd rather have Kovalev too. But right now Zherdev is "free" where as Kovalev would presumably cost a mid round pick.

People who want Zherdev clearly haven't learned the lessons the Blue Jackets, Rangers and Flyers have learned.

Doubt he's claimed though, he's really not that good.

Devils will claim Zherdev, Lemaire will turn him around and they make the playoffs. Zherdev scores the series winning goal to knock off Philly in first round. We all rejoice at the upset except for Philly fans.

Meh, 6'02". I wouldn't mind Montreal taking him.
