[Waivers] Jim Vandermeer

What's the new rule on re-entry waivers? Is there still such a thing? Or are teams off the hook for paying half a claimed player's salary?

I think a key part to this is - If they waived Alberts and assigned to the AHL, he would've still counted against the cap, while Vandemeer can be assigned to the AHL and not count against the cap.

Usually I agree with you but not on this Smass. Kassian did get a couple of shots in before being spun around and thrown to the ice by Eager. He did draw blood but the fight was a tie.

After seeing Kassian's play last night I'd rather him be on the ice than sitting in the penalty box for 5 min fighting and 2 min for instigating.

Especially right now when we are missing 2 key forwards. I'd rather have Vandy as 7th D, agitate a couple of opposing stars and get into a scrap and lay the law down. Hopefully he could get one of the opposing team's better players to drop the gloves ie: Lucic and take him out of the game for 5 mins.

Yeah, the same Lucic who single handedly destroyed Buffalo's season and bullied the whole team into submission. This guy laughs while fighting him and Canucks of all teams in the league don't need him. lmao

There are no re-entry waivers anymore. So when we need him again he can simply be called up.

Vandermeer is the kind of player you maybe add at the trade deadline if your looking to add beef to the lineup for the odd game to set the tone etc. Vandermeer is not the player that will make or break the Canucks and I can appreciate his toughness.

Wrong:

Eager not at practice today.

Win Kass.

Eager didn't really get any good shots in on Kassian, all he did was wrestle him to the ground.

only a homer would say Kassian beat up Eager. Kassian landed 1 shot above the eye resulting in a cut. Eager landed 2 shots to the back of Kassian's head and took him down. It was a draw.

Edit: In a fight it's not how you start, it's how you finish. While Kass started strong with a punch he ended taking 2 shots to the head and going down.

So the games between now and trade deadline don't count? Team doesn't need toughness between now and then?? Was it post trade dead line when Lucic ran Miller and single handedly ended Sabre's season and playoff hopes?

His Lack of Sterling play has prevented him from Joslin for a position on the Canucks. He should be Mullen his play over the next few weeks or else he and the horse he Rodin on will be Friesen for the rest of the season in Chicago instead of in the Hunt for the Stanley Cup in Cannata.

Punches to the back of the head barely do any damage. He landed a couple, but nothing huge.

And typically in a takedown you wanna be on top of the guy, not have the guy fall backwards on top of you. If it was a clean takedown I would say it was a draw. But the fact that it was such an awkward takedown, and Kassian landed the biggest shot and did the most damage, means Kassian won

Not by a huge margin, but he won.

Here is someone who has no idea what they are talking about claiming to be expert on the subject.

A punch to the back of head is way more dangerous and damaging then a punch to the face.

A punch to the back of head is banned in fighting sports because it can cause severe damage. The back of the head is the most fragile part of the head.
