I've heard several people on LGW calling for a "house cleaning" and on top of guys like Cleary, Sammy, Kindl, Quincey, etc, I heard Mursak's name too. Basically, dump the garbage and play the guys who deserve to play.
Now they waive him, and people are losing their minds and suggesting that the team should keep Mursak and send Andersson or Tatar down because they are waiver exempt? Both these guys are better than Mursak. I think it's a good sign that they keeping A & T up and in the line-up. I think it's a good thing that this team isn't factoring in minor league waiver options when putting their line-up together. Yada yada yada. Etc etc etc,
The exact same thing happened when Holland had to waive Quincey to keep Ericsson. People wept tears of blood and whipped themselves in the street. For the next two seasons we all heard how Holland made a huge mistake and he had to get Q back. When Kenny brings back the Q we all see how much worse he is than Ericsson and we're glad big-E stuck with the team.
Doesn't look like he's being waved to make room for Franzen. Franzen says he's ruling himself out for the weekend games. Aiming for a return on Wednesday, per Ansar KHAAAAAAN!!!
I wouldn't be surprised if they called Ferraro up or maybe Riley. I have a feeling Sheahan will have to wait on account of his bad choices off the ice. The only reason I think they'd aim for one of those guys over Nyquist is how crappy the PK has been.
Ferraro would give the team the speed and grit on the PK that we're missing with Helm gone. Doesn't hurt that Ferraro is scoring shorties in the AHL and has almost the same top speed as Helm but with a decent set of hands.
