This can't be real.... Green got so much love for Eriksson calling him an important PK specialist... 

 

and how come the Habs waived Frolik and Perry? what was the point of signing them to cheap contracts? 

They needed to get cap compliant.  They hope both guys slip through.  The alternative was putting Mete' on waivers, and he definitely would have been claimed

Keep in mind these guys are likely being waived to be the taxi squad.  They are waived to not risk some of the other guys who could possibly get picked up on waivers like Chatfield.
We won't see if they get assigned to the AHL or not to see if we are rid of Eriksson for the season (which I still doubt).
