#2228740 Should Commodore be waived?

Posted by Din758 on 22 November 2011 - 01:52 PM

I think that now that Smith has established himself as NHL ready, the chances of this happening are much greater than before. Commies signing was to provide depth and some grittiness to the D-core. If Smith can fill that void (depth) you lose the grittiness but youre gaining experience in Smith.

The only problem is that if they had to make a choice to put Smith or Commie in the press box for 60 games a year, theyd rather have Commie in there and Smith playing like a mad man in GR. Smith cant crack the lineup quite yet, and the only play he'll get will be for injury replacement, like this last stretch.

So I guess my answer is no. But anythings possible. Kenny knows more than I do.

It doesn't have much to do with Commodore, really. I mean even if he is waived, that means one of Ericsson or Kindl is rotating in and out with Smith. Unless Smith is getting regular ice time, there's no point in keeping him up here to sit as a healthy scratch for periods of time when he can play top minutes in the AHL.

I can't see him being given a job over Ericsson or Kindl, (not that his play hasn't shown he deserves it) because it's just not generally how the Wings do things. Could surprise me though, as I'm already a bit surprised they're keeping him up now. The question is, is he as good/better than Ericsson or Kindl in the eyes of the Red Wings brass?

I will donate a kidney if the wings pull this off and go on to win the cup.
