Lol at some of these comments.

'Perfect 4th liner' He's 27 and has played just 54 NHL games, scoring just 4pts in the process while never being a plus player. Mr. Perfect?

'Why didn't we trade him and get something for him?' See above. No value.

'Heart and soul player' Sure. If not being able to play hockey all that well or not being able to play a full season counts as heart and soul.

'We should never lose these kind of players' Dime a dozen scrubs? Can't keep 'em all.

etc.


Not hating Volpatti now. He was an 'alright' 13th forward. But some of these comments are hilarious. I suppose the same crybaby-type stuff gets posted after every loss too, so...

I'm becoming frustrated with GMMG. Why does he keep making asinine decisions and overvaluing players? Damn. Best of luck to Volpatti in DC.

I agree with most here, not sure what the point of giving away Volpatti was (could it really have been cap?) I guess we will have to wait and see if there is more to this story or not. As it sits right now I don't see the logic to it. Maybe trade? Maybe attitude? Maybe just wrong?

Ugh.. I was hoping he'd clear.

The Canucks had better have had a good reason for waiving him. Why we kept Weise over him is beyond me.

The best of luck to him with the Caps though.

Maybe GMGM asked gillis to put Volpatti on waivers for good graces to preclude a trade? highly unlikely..

Could this be a little payback for MG going to Washington and embrassing Washington's GM McPhee?

MG has got to be embrassed today.

This is interesting:

"Waiver order is determined by the standings. The team in last place gets first chance at players put on waivers."
http://thehockeywrit...l-waiver-rules/

This would appear to mean only Columbus and Buffalo passed on him. He got snapped up fast I'd say.

In all honesty we had 5LWers 3 RWers and 1 LW/RWer so it made sense by position..

Although I do agree with you, Volpatti was more of a 4th liner then Weise will ever be

Source confirms Oilers were one of several teams who had a claim in on Volpatti. Caps lower in standings, they got him.

Worst case scenario Weise=Volpatti give me a break at least Weise has a little bit of skill all Volpatti could do is occasionally hit someone...

Yea saw that coming.. I'm honestly really starting to dislike management.. Gillis should of traded Lou this off season when the leafs offered him schenn, or a deal involving kadri.. Now no one want Lou, schnieds is gettin pissed off, and we are gonna end up trading Cory.. We won't win the cup with Lou, plain an simple.. GmMg has pissed off manny.. We traded coho for kassian, which I'm fine with if we used kassian other then a 5 min per game plug.. That booth trade is looking awful, not to mention the Ballard one.. Seriously what has gillis done for our team in te last few years that is beneficial???

You're off base here. No, we can't get too upset over losing a 4th liner but at the same time guys like this are valuable. Take a guy like Zac Rinaldo on the Flyers. He played the same kind of role for the Flyers (tough guy, fighter, big hitter) and as he got ice time consistently he improved and now I believe he has a couple goals. Rinaldo was a staple on the Flyers' 4th line as was Volpatti on the Canucks' 4th line and the Canucks lost him to waivers because they "wanted to free up a roster spot". Well, I hope that free roster spot is used for someone worthwhile or they just completely wasted a nice asset, 4th line player or not.

I don't like Weise and never have. I'm not "turning" on anybody.

So, don't lump me into that category. Seriously...
