Feel bad for Sammy, but he just didn't do enough to merit a roster spot.

Forgive me, but I just don't.  Don't know why.  I felt bad for Eaves, Tootoo and others.  I have to say I just don't feel bad at all for him.

I'm in shock Holland had the balls to actually do it.

its like Kenny has held his hand up and admitted he made a complete b##ls up with the signing of Sammy. If he had given him a deal worth $1.5m per year then maybe it wouldn't have been so bad but $3m a year was a major overpayment.

That someone would actually claim him off waivers.......more than my mind can process right now.

Shame it had to end this way. I will always appreciate what Sammy did for us in our deep playoff runs.

Only if he is free. I still think Sammy has something left in the tank and can help certain teams, whoever there are no teams who will be willing to take on his contract.

For me, it was more the 2 years and the NTC than the actual salary, although that was a huge overpayment for a guy no one else seemingly wanted.

The Wings have already paid the majority of his contract for the year.  He's a UFA at the end of the season.  If someone actually wanted him and thought he could help, I don't think the money would be a deal breaker.

The even better news of this story is that Franzen is returning Sunday, making this move necessary.  Hope he can play with the fire he did before the injury.

Money wouldn't be a deal breaker but 1.5 mil is still high for what he provides. For a team to take on his salary they would have to be convinced that he can help make the playoffs, and if that where the case Kenny would have found a trade partner instead of waiving him.

I wouldn't be suprised it he ends up back in Vancouver.  He did score 30 goals playing with the Sedin's the majority of the time so there is some chemistry there.  Sammy did some good stuff for the organization in his previous tenure  here but this time around it was pretty terrible.  Good luck to him.

To me it's the whole thing. I can't believe Holland gave him a raise AND the NTC on that term.

I'll be surprised if anyone picks him up.

Sammy waived, Tootoo waived. Doesn't provide much relief but at least Holland is admitting his mistakes and starting to put his awful signings from that offseason behind him.
