Pretty interesting turn of events. Does any team claim him?

I think this is then end of the NHL line for Cholo... left exposed by one of the leagues worst teams, claimed and subsequently waived by an expansion team.  Looks like an AHL/KHL/European league career ahead.

He's 2 years ahead of Zadina on the road to 1st round bust.

1. Seattle has a better overall D core than at least half the NHL

2. Zadina's career trajectory to this point is not comparable to Cholowski's at all.

The "Cholowski Sucks" thread exists for a reason.

The kid is not even worth sacrificing our waiver order for.

Remember that a waiver pick up essentially has to play on your big club or you're just redundantly waiving them again. Cholo will be 24 this year and never showed an ounce of NHL competency over 100+ games. He's done in the NHL.

I do wonder tho, that if he went to an expansion team of an earlier era, when they actually had to pick from bottom 6 forwards and bottom pair D, would he have had at least a short NHL career?

He got beat out for a job here by perma #6 Gustav Lindstrom. Brian Lashoff is a more reliable NHL defender than he is.

Well the Caps do need Dmen bad!

Fehervary (rookie 2nd rounder) - John Carlson
Dimitri Orlov - Nick Jensen
Trevor VReamsdikes - Justin Schultz
Matt Irwin

Wait till they find out Matt Irwin is better

Headed to Caps HF boards for a while

That's not a bad D corp tho.

Well they have about x3 top4 Dman on the squad between Carlson, Orlov, and Schultz. And I'd consider Schultz a low end top4, IDK about you.

Maybe Fehervary can fill that last spot? He's a 22 year old rookie.

If Orlov or Carlson go down with an injury their D is gonna be immediate trash.

TVR and Jensen as your 3rd pair? That's good depth.

Sure. I think TVR and Jensen are high end 3rd pairing guys. Just not top4 guys. I wouldn't want my team having to play Jensen 21 minutes a night. But that's what the Caps had to do in their season opener.

They were real bitter about losing Brendan Dillon in the offseason. They don't have much quality depth after Carlson and Orlov right now.

Cholo is a leftside Dman, which they need. Can he beat out Matt Irwin for the 6/7 spot? I honestly don't think so. Irwin's a pretty reliable bottom pair shutdown Dman who plays really physical. A gamer. Pretty much the polar opposite of Cholo.

Cholo will have to be seriously sheltered with them to be successful. My guess is Alexeyev pushes him out of a spot their though pretty soon.

Cholo will be their Bowey replacement, a player with a bag full of tools and no clue how to use them...
