Olesz on unconditional waivers

40 posts in this topic

According to Renaud Lavoie, the Devils put Rostislav Olesz on unconditional waivers for the purposes of terminating his contract.  Shame - the Devils could use him, I think.  I wonder where he'll end up.

My thinking is locker room cancer or he requested the split from the Devils. In the AHL he had 1G, 3A in 5GP. Good enough for the AHL atleast. PDB may have gotten to him?

Maybe it's a mutual decision 

 

It has to be a mutual decision, otherwise you can't terminate a contract mid-season.

Is this considered a buyout?

Too bad he didn't work out, but I think it was a good gamble by Lou. Good luck to him in Switzerland. His 1 Mil will come off the cap per TG. Aproximately doubles our available cap space.

I've read this post 3 times and still have no idea what it means.

On topic: olesz didn't want to go back to being buried in the ahl. Unfortunate because he probably would have been the first call up when the inevitable injury happens. But I'm not too disappointed- he had plenty of opportunity and even a few games in a top 6 role and really didn't do much.

No, if he agrees to the termination the contract is gone

My guess is that there may have been a mutual understanding that if he couldn't help the NHL team, they would cut ties.

The Devils don't want to pay him 6 times what they're paying most of their AHL guys.  Plus Reid Boucher and Joe Whitney have been pretty good and might merit a call-up also.

 you cant understand me yet you basically interpret what i just said ok

 

minus the canned "he didnt do much" response right

 

and we speculate he wanted out yeeeeeeeah.

 

inevitable injury...too bad he couldnt make the IR roster.

He found another gig and quit.   And then what you said.

Yeah, but he can't quit.  Well, he can, but the Devils would suspend him and could toll the contract indefinitely, meaning he couldn't play in North America again.

It's a nod and wink thing.   "If you can find another job, let us know."   He finds the job and they release him.   Win/win.   He doesn't have to ride the bus and they don't have to pay him to do it.

I thought he made some nifty plays in the preseason, but reg season did nothing. Almost less than Brunner does now...

I'm pretty bummed about this. I really wanted him to succeed here. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I thought he showed some promise when he was given some top 6 time. I wonder where he'd be now if he were given the full-time 4th line position he probably deserved. It was a pretty pointless signing if he was never going to be given much of a chance.

He had no hands, no vision and was too slow so he couldn't really hit anyone... let's keep it real.

He's always been good enough for the AHL, at least the last two years.  He's what you would call in baseball terms an AAAA player, not good enough to stick in the bigs but too good for the minors.  He might as well go overseas though I can't imagine playing in Switzerland is that much more luxurious than the minor leagues in North America.
