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

he's only a minus 1, our current 4th liners are hitting double digits in the minus column, maybe if he doesnt get claimed we should put him on the 4th line and get rid of ________.

Exactly, this is why I think he might have a bad attitude.

You might want to use names because I could put nearly the entire roster under tha description, especially the CBGB line.

He was a former #7 overall pick who had some pretty nice numbers before a real bad knee injury. It had potential to be a solid addition if he found his game again.

I doubt the games played bonus had anything to do with it, according to TG it's $100,000 each after 60, 70, and 80 games.

It still has potential, the guy isn't dead, and he's not a lock to be claimed on waivers either.

Weird, because when he was signed I didn't like it at all, but he won me over with his play actually. Idk what warranted a cut, maybe some scratches, but I thought he played pretty well. Oh well, that's basically how this season has gone

Lou says this is for "roster flexibility"

 

 

Lamoriello said he wanted “roster flexibility for different situations.”

 

“The reason is very simplistic: to give me flexibility to bring in any type of player I want,” he said. “That doesn’t mean he’s definitely going to go down. We’ll just see what happens on the waivers.”

 

(If Olesz clears waivers, he could play in up to 10 games or remain on the roster up to 30 days and still be sent down without being put through waivers again. After 10 games played or 30 days on the roster, he would have to clear waivers again to be sent down.)

 

Olesz, 28, has no goals and two assists in 10 games with the Devils this season.
He signed a one-year contract with the Devils as an unrestricted free agent on July 5. That deal includes a $700,000 base salary and he can earn up to $300,000 more in games-played bonuses: $100,000 if he plays in 60 games and an additional $100,000 at the 70- and 80-game marks.

 

Lamoriello was careful to say that the decision to place Olesz on waivers was not an indication he was being singled out for playing poorly.

“He’s done everything asked of him,” Lamoriello said. “He works, he does everything, so we can’t be critical of him. At this time when you’ve got injuries, different people have to step their game up and it’s not only him. There are other people that haven’t.”

agreed, I was thinking the same, that being said, Olesz is the least of our problems, Zajak turning into a checking center is really scarey, after losing Zach & Kovy we needed Zajak more then ever, instead we got John Madden w/ less Offensse!

Has anyone tracked the CBGB line's shifts, are they being used against top lines or has that only happened on a few occasions? are they getting tough matchups to free up our "supposedly, scoring lines" or are they just su(king against other bad lines?  and I know that they all play multiple roles now. so is it time to break them up?
