He's pretty decent....but we simply just don't have enough room for him as well, I can see a team like Phoenix or Minnesota picking him up.
At this point, honestly, any young, top 6 potential players that we can grab for cheap or for free, we should try and make room for. To me, this year is one big tryout. I don't know a lot about Hamill, though, to be honest, so I don't know if he is deserving of that space.
Ottawa should be all over forwards in their low 20s who are in this kind of situation, though.
You find room for talent... it's not like we are contending for the cup this season and we have tons of cap space.
We can bring him in and let it work itself up when injuries hit and opportunities present themselves.
Exactly. This is what I was trying to get at. We have room for anyone and everyone right now if there's a chance they improve this team. God forbid we try and improve this team because we have a bunch of guys that will top out as 3rd liners.
is this what people would be saying if we hadn't traded for Filatov and he was available on waivers right now?
I do like Kulda... think he can be a solid defensaive defenseman... we have no room though... defense is becoming a very deep position league wide... tough to crack... especially after the 2012 draft with that very deep pool of D-Men coming... lots of teams will be rocking amazing defenses soon.
Regin is injured so might as well give Hamill a shot
i fully agree cause if regin did destroy that same shoulder again ( and that is in no way a fact at this time) he will be gone at least 40 games and if zbad should be sent back then that leaves only da costa. so ya hamill maybe nothing but a bust but i think ottawa should be looking to become the place of second chances.
