Rumor had it Holland turned down a trade offer for Tootoo a few weeks back. Either that was bogus or Holland screwed up and realized he had to let him go for nothing (possibly).

This is very interesting... @AnsarKhanMLive: Babcock said if Tootoo clears they'll decide tomorrow what to do. They could keep him on roster or send him down and recall Nyquist.

Please god bring up Gus

I'd like to see where you read/heard this, if possible.

I didn't read it from a source, more hearsay, so it's likely untrue. Just thought it was a weird player to start a rumor over.

It must be pretty awesome being Bob McKenzie and knowing anything and eveything you report will be taken as fact, truth, official confirmation.

 

I'm not being snarky at all. I totally mean it. The guy's a media demigod.

Definitely.

 

As Twitter has gotten more popular plenty of sports journalists have gotten it wrong trying to be the first to get a story out there.  McKenzie is one of a handful of people I know will get it right.

I really question Holland sometimes...why even re-sign Cleary, I mean really? Tootoo is way more important to this club than Cleary OR Sammy...

 

I agree. Why re-sign Cleary knowing something like this was going to happen?

Babcock didn't look too happy after his last fight I wonder if that played into it.

I'm a little confused on how the waiving works. If he does clear and they decide to keep him on the roster, wouldn't that mean that waiving him was all for nothing? I've always been under the impression that when you waive someone, you send them down. Can anyone pass along some insight here?

Why don't they just waive tootoo and eaves and bring up nyquist? If they are claimed then great. If not then we still save money on the cap as nyquist cap number is like 950K or so. I don't understand why this hasn't already been done

I really hate this move. Pisses me off that Cleary and Sammy get a free pass, while they offer nothing to the team. Toots plays his ass off every second he gets. Cleary is #1 in the league at falling on his ass, and Sammy is just sitting on the bench counting his money. I don't understand this decision at all.

Why would we have to send him down though?

Forwards:
Datsyuk
Zetterberg
Bertuzzi
Franzen
Weiss
Alfredsson
Tatar
Helm
Nyquist
Abdelkader
Anderson
Cleary
Samuelson
Miller

Defense:
Kronwall
Big E
Kindl
Dekeyser
Smith
Quincey
Lashoff

This would make a 23 man roster. My question is would we be over the cap with this roster or no?

I can't see how this is possibly to bring up Nyquist. With two games left before waiver exemption is no longer available, they would be over the cap and lose someone once E is back. This move essentially covers a now healthy, no longer LTIR Helm once everyone else is healthy.

 

After its all said and done, we'll have traded Tootoo for Helm, and that's hoping someone claims him.

Yep, I'm pretty sure you're right. My math was wrong, left someone out when I was adding things up.

If hockey were the "business" it was supposed to be, Cleary would have been waived before Tootoo, Sammy would be waived to at least get rid of some of his $3 mil salary and Tootoo would even stay over Miller as he brings more to the table and a much needed element to a team with no real hitters aside from Helm at forward.  I'm with Mike J. on this one.  While Kenny's waiving guys, he should waive Cleary, Sammy and Quincey to see if anyone wants the garbage that Holland believes should be in our lineup.

Dan Cleary is an Xbox 360.  While good for a while, it's time for the new generation to take over.

With Ericsson's $3.25M back on the books after LTIR, we'll be about $700K or so over the cap.

Because you forgot Eaves?
