Carolina's looking to shed payroll next year. Taking back Tallinder doesn't help that.

 

This gives them the cap space to add a contract for next year, though.  Tallinder would be a great fit there, I'd really hate to deal him given that we're currently using 4 guys substantially worse than him.

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

He was, and he was also winning a significant number of his face-offs.

 

FWIW - His cap hit is only $3 milliion

Is he playing Center or is he just taking faceoffs?


Looks like he's recently been demoted to the 4th line in Carolina with limited special teams time.  

 

3 mill for a 4th line winger is way too much, for a center it's tolerable I guess if he can move up to the 3rd.  I bet some team takes him.  I think this was a smart proactive move by Rutherford to dump him as some teams are desperate to add talent before the playoff push.  I wonder if he shopped him at all though first?  Maybe teams would only trade for him if Carolina ate cap hit/salary...

No more claims, we're turning into the freaking Islanders.    Even worse, we'll get past the deadline and be stuck with all of these guys.

You make it sound like we've been picking up guys from waivers all season. Unless I'm forgetting someone we have only claimed 1 player; kostopolis. And Jokinen is actually a good player.

Point taken, but the cheap trades aren't that much different.   We're taking on too many players, especially if we can't dispose of any.   Then everyone starts getting healthy and players have to go through waivers.    And we've paid a little bit for most of them.

Eh, you really think we're dropping Loki or Poni on waivers? I doubt it. I doubt we even try to trade either of them. Plus, with the injuries we have now, everyone should be out past the deadline anyways, so it won't matter that much. And don't we get emergency call ups after that, so is there a way we could sneak someone through waivers like that?

I could see Poni being waived.    Lokitonov is a keeper and they should be trying to resign him.

 

If they took on Jokinen, that would be the 5th forward they've taken on this year.   That's alot.

True, but you can send down Lil' Gio, Barch, Kostopolous, all guys that might not get claimed and wouldn't hurt much if they did, with Gio probably being the most likely to get claimed. Zubes comes back, Kovy, there's your room right there, right?

Zubes should be back next week, we'll see who goes down. I don't think we would risk Poni, more likely a kid with two way will just be sent down.

Let's see.   We've got 8 D so they have 2 of the 3 scratch spots.

 

Kovy, Elias, Zajac, Henrique, Clarkson, Loki, Zubrus, Carter, Bernier, Gionta, Poni, Barch, D'Agostini, Greek Guy, Hypothetical Jokinen.

 

I think that's it, everyone else has options or is Sestito.

 

That's not *that* bad.   2 guys would need to be waived.   Greek Guy obviously, the next one would be a little sketchy.   Gionta doesn't deserve to be waived, he just shouldn't be playing C.
