[Cleared Waivers] Canucks Assign F Chris Higgins to Utica

Bro Jake said he had a source who suggested Higgins might retire after this season rather than uproot his family.  That is a better outcome that trading him and eating salary next year.

Having said that, Bro Jake is the least knowledgeable commentator out there along with Pratt.

Thanks for your time in Vancouver Higgins. 

Why couldn't they get someone for him though?

Welcome to a salary cap league. 2.5M for a 4th line, or 13th forward, isn't going to garner you anything in return. Also the reason for moving Higgins is to free up a roster spot, they would have never had any intention to "get someone for him"

stoll, kassian , Gomez, semin, Higgins , definatly there is a change happening in the game.   youth speed and skill are pushing players out.

Also, booze, cocaine, slapfighting, and not scoring a goal in a season are falling out of favour.

To add to this, I think doing it this way is the best way to handle it. When a player gets scratched and misses practice is immediately picked up by the media and rumours starts swarming. In the end the players and the coaches have to answer questions, this way it's confirmed and put forward by the management group. All questions are answered and it eases the load off the team.

Excellent point, I hadn't even thought of that aspect.

Connauton (CLB) and Higgins (VAN) on waivers

 

Connaughton is $683K cap hit

LOL @ all the people who bashed and bashed Gillis for trading Connauton. This is the second time he's been waived now.

higgins switching to defencemen now?

You didn't hear? The blue jackets traded ryan Johansen to the predators for Seth Jones. The thread is in the rumours section if you would like to read up on it.

So they lost a forward and now have one extra dman. Also it's impossible for Higgins to switch to "defencemEn" unless he cloned himself.

eh i guess you have a point but it still seems weird that someone would waive a defencemen to pick up a forward. Maybe if they were running with 8D on the roster or something i guess it would make sense

Goodness, you can't devalue something with no to negative value. They've been trying to move him for like a year...

Seriously, how do people not understand the situation..?

It boggles the mind doesn't it? Linden and Benning did the best they could over the last year to move him. No interest is no interest. And now here we are. Waivers was the only move we had left.
