That doesn't make a whole lot of sense.    Olesz is on a one year deal, Tedenby is still a RFA 1st round pick.   On a team that sucks, the choice is obvious.   Let him play and see what happens.


 

He doesn't need to be waived for roster reasons unless Clowe or one of the defensemen come back.   Tedenby and Josefson were already on the roster, if Zajac and Elias play two guys in the lineup come out and go into the box.   Obviously they made their decision on one of the guys coming out of the lineup.

 

Actually even with the defensemen, it's not like Merill is going to be able to play anyway, so he'd just go on IR and collect a paycheck for awhile, so really the only move that requires a waiver is Clowe.    

Yeah I think they played Olesz to see what he brings, and decided to cut ties with him before his games played bonus kicks in

Its a roster spot for Teddy, till Clowe comes back....then Teddy gets waived (or maybe traded)

Steve and Chico were on fire last night with the stupid calls. How the hell was Chico so confused by that icing call in the 2nd? He was like uhhh, I think they're calling too many men. Chico, the linesman put his arm up, signalling the icing, then called it and Carter even goes 'hey I was gonna git der first' with his hands. At least Cangi corrected him.....

 

Steve and Chico are so oblivious to whats on the ice. They're so late to identify a call or something that has happened.

 

As for Olesz, he has done nothing in his time here. Good riddance. Let Teddy get some playing time and build off his decent game yesterday.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Agreed, he's big and shy's away from hits you think he's capable of making. He's really done nothing, unfortunately, although my expectations for him weren't really anything much.

As bad and slow Chico and Steve are with the on ice happenings. I too thought it was a penalty, as they blew the whistle before the puck crossed the line. Bye Olesz, though I really haven't seen any thing positive from Tedenby or Josefson when they do get to play.

I don't think he has bad hands at all and he definately doesn't have bad vision. He doesn't hit anyone, but neither does anyone else on this team.

On a team that has little offense, especially creative o, I would have liked to have seen him given some more time since we have no problem trotting out Ted, Gionta, and it's unfortunate to say but even Carter.

I thought I recall it being hard to see because the puck hit the corner in a bit of a camera blind spot. Wasn't sure if you could see it as it crossed the line.

I just went by what the linesman was calling and it was fairly clear to me since the linesman had his arm up and he was the one to blow the whistle. Whether it was the right call is another story, but Steve or Chico should have realized what was happening after a second or two.

Could see them doing this to bring up a defenseman and avoid IRing Merrill or Volchenkov, if both guys are day to day - this, of course, if they are not particularly satisfied with Olesz's game to begin with.  If they think Pesonen and Timmins have been good enough in the minors it could just be to clear Olesz out in general.  Either way, not the move I expected.

I understand what you are saying and I'd agree with you if I thought Tedenby was good enough to be a NHL player. I just really have no faith in him at all and wouldn't mind losing him on waivers.

 

I agree with sundstrom and think that Lou is hoping someone takes Olesz's contract though. I'm curious to know when the games played bonus(es) kick in.

It's just not worth the potential for a claim when the team sucks.    Let him play a bit, see what happens, if it doesn't work out, you can cut bait later.    I don't know if their style of hockey is conducive to him doing much, but "not doing much" describes alot of people right now.

Olesz has been terrible.  He brings almost nothing to the table and has been invisible in just about every game he's played.  No loss here if he get claimed.  The Devils already got burned by putting a prospect through waivers with Urbom...they must feel that Tedenby is more likely to be claimed should he be put on waivers.

Really thought he would be utilized here in a fourth line role. Suffice to say, we've been asking too much
