It's about damn time, I don't see anyone claiming him though.

I think Sammy was the scapegoat a lot. He IMO isn't even the worst player on the team but it would take some kind of miracle for him to get out of Babcocks doghouse.

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.

 

I'm no longer surprised by NTC's, GM's seem to hand them out like candy on Halloween.

Kindl and Cleary next... Both absolutely useless. Bertuzzi I like to keep around, good in shootouts.

Specifically I was surprised by the raise AND the term AND the NTC. Seems like one or two of those should've made the deal more favorable, but apparently not.

Holland finally throws cash around to bring in a free agent and he does it for friggin Samuelsson.

Glad Holland admitted his mistake.  This signing was a waste of time like we all thought.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Could an offer of a coaching position be right around the corner?

Just saw this and it made me very excited!


Kindl and Cleary next... Both absolutely useless. Bertuzzi I like to keep around, good in shootouts.

Cleary should be, Tuzzi should be cause shootouts can't be the only reason to keep him around.  Kindl should be trade bait.

Sammy's contract was a disaster from the start, and has only gotten worse with time.

Sammy being waived means very little. Now if he is claimed then the party can start but I can`t see that happening. Bert is going nowhere and either is Cleary.

keep cleaning out he dead weight. No it will not help us much cap wise until the summer. But man I am tired of seeing crap on the ice when there are kids ready to play. No not all of them will make it, but we can't know that until they play.

Maybe Canucks on a reclamation project to play with Sedins?

I'm wondering if Sammy was waived so late so that another team could take on the rest of his salary which would be around 1.2M for the rest of the season? Of course this waiver was to create a roster spot above all.

Are you kidding me?? He has been given the opportunity again and again without anything to show for it. He has absolutely beenthe worst player on the roster imo.
