[Waivers] Stalberg (Nash) & Carkner (NYI) - Friedman


Recommended Posts

I don't see how Carkner would be a no brainer. He's 34 and would be using up a slot one of our younger players could use.

Because we have almost zero toughness and intimidating size on our D roster.

Bieksa is the only toughness we have, who doesn't even crack 200 pounds and is currently injured.

Edler is our biggest guy at 6'3 215.

Carkner is 6'4-6'5 230+ pounds, with a mean streak and strong fighting ability. We have been lacking that crease clearing brute on the blue line since I can remember.

To add to that, his very manageable 1.5 million cap hit expires at the end of the season.

Really think Weber or Stanton are any better options at this point? He brings in value that they simply cannot provide.

This would also relieve some pressure off Dorsett from being forced to go after the other teams heavies, getting rag dolled and potentially injured when he has been an integral part of the bottom 6.

Win win pick up in my eyes.
