[Waivers] Derek Grant, Greg Pateryn


Recommended Posts

I would pick up Derek Grant. We do have the cap space and I think we need the bottom 6 depth and toughness that he could bring.

 

Just waive Petan and Dowling to give a total of $1.5m in cap space. This reduces our forward roster to 12 players but my understanding is that Boeser is very close to returning, so he can be activated to bring our forward lineup to 13 men, with no impact on cap hit.

 

Once Motte returns to the roster (again no additional cap hit since he is on IR) we waive Highmore or Chiasson, which then gives us an additional $725-750k of cap space and our forward lineup becomes:

 

Miller Pettersson Boeser

Pearson Horvat Garland

Hoglander Dickinson Podkolzin

Motte Grant Lammikko

(Chiasson/Highmore)

 

 

Edit: And none of those moves require us to reduce our D corps to 7 players, which as has been noted, could also be done.

Earlier I would've agreed, but Petan won me over despite being a smaller guy.  He sure can play.

I still disagree; he's decent at the AHL level but he's absolutely useless on the big club.  Another Megna/Ebbett.  I want him gone by any means necessary, especially if we can get an actual NHLer instead.

I'd do it if we didn't already have Lammikko.

But we already got Lammikko and Motte is returning soon... Unless u wanna dump Highmore or Chiasson?? 

Chiasson is a space holder imo, no problem waiving him when others return. Losing Highmore wouldn't be too bad either. Our depth is a lot better than I remember it being.

 

Regardless I probably wouldn't bother picking up either of these guys.

Can’t we just send down Dowling and Petan?

 

Id actually be surprised if Benning doesn’t claim Grant. Seems to be exactly the type of player has collected over the last 7 years.

 

Only thing that might keep him away is that he’s signed another year. Even then he’s a good bottom 6 replacement for Sutter next season at the very least.

Grant was a decent depth player in his late 20’s. But he’s in his early 30’s now, and might not be living up to the salary. Don’t see any other reason why Anaheim would waive him (except to help facilitate a potential Eichel trade).

 

Pateryn…meh. I’ve liked Burroughs so far.

Grant’s from Abbotsford. 
Might be a good pickup for either of our clubs (if he was to clear later for Abby).

 

Also has never been below 51% on FOW for his entire career. Not too shabby.
