Why waive players who we just signed????

They aren't likely to make the big club and are more depth players and/or they are likely to clear waivers and would benefit from playing time in the AHL.

Shouldn't Pinizzotto be on that list? He's on a two way isn't he?

I didn't realise the players are actually exposed as per normal waivers, just earlier this year per NHL/PA agreement. I guess the Canucks didn't want to risk him being claimed.

There's also the point of their being only so much room on the Wolves, so they can't send down all their depth players. If everyone wants to play and there is a lockout, they'll have to make arrangements to play in a league outside North America.


If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

Only suprised by Ebbett. He will probally be claimed.

Arnott signed maybe?

Players don't get to vote. Bettman decides when he wants to lock out and the board of governors either agree with it or not.

Well sure enough. I am talking about ratification votes. At some point there will be an offer and players will vote whether to accept or not. Hopefully not next spring but likely.

You know for the Sedin's 6th Sense, calling a guy who has 21 sucks shows how you're not the 6th sense of the Sedins.



Was joking / sarcasm. He said Volpatti sucks cause he got no minutes, and I countered by using his logic and saying if that's true, does Kassian suck cause he barely got any minutes? ...I was NOT serious...

Except that Kassian did get playoff minutes because he is a far better player than Volpatti.

I wish Volpatti well, but c'mon... "Scruuuuub."
