Well based on dmann422's post he thought it was a big deal for me to lose "Urbom" which is not it. So i explained myself and a WHOLE LOT of people are on board with me saying the roster management is sh!t and guys are sitting and getting sent down while others shouldnt. This is what it was about.
Plus not all teams had room to put a dman on their roster either at that specific time so its not that much of a good indication of his value
Teams are ALWAYS looking for young defensemen with upside...and Urbom would've cost them NOTHING. As it is, one team in the Caps gave him a shot, and 20 games later (and after being benched and criticized in Game 20 back on 11/29...hadn't played for the Caps since), they were willing to let someone else take him off their hands for nothing. No one bit. So yeah, I think it's safe to say his value wasn't good then, and 20 NHL games did nothing to improve his value now.
As far as the roster goes...I'm hoping the second half sees some shaking out and some filtering out. Hovering around NHL .500 is not going to get this team into the playoffs.
He was only just put on waivers today. We'll find out at noon tomorrow if he was claimed by anyone or not.
My mistake, guess we'll see then.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
