[Waivers] Blair Jones

45 posts in this topic

Calgary waived him despite their lack of centers.

I think he's be a great fit on the Vancouver 4th line. He's gritty, fast, been winning faceoffs. Cost nothing to acquire him (except maybe waiving Ebbet). With Manny gone, I think he could replace him adequately and give us better bottom-six depth.

Jones - Lapierre - Weise

Solid, defensively responsible 4th line. Jones/Lapierre can take left/right side faceoffs.

I like his size, 6'3 207lbs and he hits also.

Not a bad option..

Not sure why we waived him... one of the only natural centers

Cervenka must be ready to play center or Baertschi is coming back

With Snow its partly bad management, partly bad luck. Feaster is just crap management through and through.

Do we have to claim every player in the waivers thread? :lol:

I'm kidding, but I think we can use a good faceoff player, instead.

I don't think we can take someone off waivers right now can we? Aren't we at max. contracts?

You don't give Weise much credit, he plays his role nicely. You don't see Volpatti killing penalties

It was 50 I thought, under the old CBA, and last time I counted on our CG page that's how many we had. Although with IR teams can apparently go up to 90 (!) so with Malhotra we have at least one to spare I suppose. I'm not too update on the health of all our prospects as well.

Again, this is all based on my knowledge of the old CBA but I never heard any rumours of the contract limit being changed.

Depends on what you think Weise's "role" on this team is because I don't think he's playing his role (be a consistent physical presence and win a fight or two) nicely.

100% he get's claimed.

Definition of a perfect 4th line center.
