Sad. He's a good player and deserves to have a job

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Don't understand how we can't find a job anywhere, given there are some very terrible Dmen in this league.

 

Can only assume he's being picky and doesn't want to go to Long Island.

i have a good guess as to why. Ron Hainsey was in the same situation but got very lucky.

Wow sadly for him White has really fallen down the depth chart, hopefully he can find a job somewhere. There are lot worse defenders than him maybe his salary demands are too high ?

That's too bad.  I liked him.  I even gave a hamster the middle name Ian, even though I've never been partial to the name.

 

Doubly sad that he was released by the Jets.  I hope he finds something, even if it's in another league.

Let's not forget, he's got a bit of a mouth on him. I wouldn't be surprised if that has something to do with it.

 

He'll find work, though. Because he's a pretty good defensemen, and even crappy defensemen are at a premium, it seems. It may just be that he'll have to wait for the injuries to set in.

I like Ian.  He could come here and play for the Texas Stars and I would go see him.  :cheesy:   But I hope he finds a place in the NHL, if that's what he desires.

I don't fully understand how he could fall so quickly. He was a serviceable top 4 defenseman until last year, and all of a sudden he's an untouchable. Did he kill somebody's kitten?

He's small, rosters are small, the cap is small. Bad combo.

I bet he said something to Babcock he shouldn't have. I think you're right, Dabura. You bark at one of the best coaches in the NHL, you probably are going to find your butt in the KHL before too long.

It's a shame, because he was actually pretty decent prior to last season. But then, anyone who's paired with Nick Lidstrom is gonna look pretty decent. Not saying he's not a good defenseman. Just, yeah.

 

He's a bit of a journeyman, isn't he? Been with a lot of NHL clubs, I think.

You jest, but just wait till we get a couple of injuries on the back end :P


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

He was awfully loud about Babcock's decisions to not play him. If you search about him, you'll find articles about White being a complete locker room cancer with previous teams also. It just seems like he doesn't know how to just shut up and earn what you want. Some people just want the past to dictate the future in their lives.

I just don't get the lockerroom cancer stuff.  I've never heard anything legit about it regarding White.  Same goes for him having choice words for Babcock or being unprofessional about being benched. 

 

Did Babcock sit someone and got mad at them because they accepted being benched?  He's a seasoned vet and was honest about not liking and being benched and wanting to play.  But I never saw anything that reached the level of what you guys are talking about here.
