Seems like a good pickup, gritty and versatile. He would be an upgrade on Volpatti or Weise. Im sure he'll be gone by the time he'd got to us. Im prepared to be disappointed.

The topic of this thred,in the main page, came out as "Buffalo places Cody...", so I panicked for a moment, thinking the player was Cody Hodgson.

PERFECT pick up for this team. A very respectable fighter (see fight with Tanner Glass), good size at 6'3 221 and plays center.

To add to that, he had 8 goals and 20 points in his last full season.

IF, and that is a big IF, he doesn't get claimed before we have a chance, no-brainer pick up.

Could not agree more, we could use him. Im not impressed with lappy this season, this might be a step up

Too much cap for an incompetent guy. Can you tell me how you are able to post, despite being banned? Does Deb, our mod, know about this?

1.2million isnt too bad for a 4th line tough guy that can play all three forward positions and put up 20 points.

We have almost $1.9 million adjusted for the partial year. Add the $600k from the roster player he would replace and there is plenty of room this year. that isn't even counting putting Malhotra on LTIR which we haven't done yet.

I do think he is overpaid for what he is, but he is certainly an upgrade for us and any other deals would likely be freeing up cap space for us and not taking on more cap (Luongo going out).

While he isn't ideal, he is probably one of the best free options that has come up this year to improve us. I just don't see him not getting claimed beforehand though.

We have a lot of mods. I am not sure, I am at 100% warning so I don't think I'm actually banned until one more suspension. That being said I haven't had a suspension in years so help me get my account back! I can't even message a mod, I can only post.

So, why not a veteran like Handzus? Why do we have to resort to some incompetent 4th liner, who has been put on waivers even by a team that is worse than we are?

I didn't hear Handzus is on waivers? Last I heard he had a NMC with San Jose.

Aside from that small detail, he costs more and isn't what you need for a 3rd or 4th line centre.

Because a player has been waived by a worse team, doesn't mean he doesn't have a better fit with a different organization. Different teams have different needs.

So, why was he put on trade proposal? I thought only non-NMC and NTC players were allowed to be placed on trade proposal.

I have no idea what you are talking about...

According to Capgeek he has a NMC.

If players with NMC or NTC weren't allowed as proposals, then go ask the mods to delete the 500 Luongo threads.

You where the one that brought up Handzus as an option in response to the comment "Cody is one of the better FREE options that has come up this year"... if we want to make a trade (vs. just picking up a 4th liner off waivers), then there are a lot of better options than either Handzus or Mccormick.

Why was Handzus put on trade proposal? You seem to be missing the point.

PERFECT pick up for this team. A very respectable fighter (see fight with Tanner Glass), good size at 6'3 221 and plays center.

To add to that, he had 8 goals and 20 points in his last full season.

IF, and that is a big IF, he doesn't get claimed before we have a chance, no-brainer pick up.


No, thanks. No more of this half tough guy, half skater anymore. Hordichuk, Weise, Bitz etc....all ended up fail. Just get a legit tough guy for once.....I rather have Kassian of the Wilds.

You were dying to have Winchester a few years ago, Bitz and Hordichuck were tougher than him.
