Yet he still haunts on us on the cap for another 4 yrs lol , he was a disaster and his career is probably over
I'm sure it's yes but I forgot ... Does anyone know if nosek Can be claimed through waivers? That would make frk and nosek and assuming mantha makes it and holland is still trying to sign Miller and/or helm you'd gotta think one of frk/nosek and one of Tatar/nyquist are gone ... Draft day is gonna be full of moves
As krsmith said, Nosek has one more year (or 64 games in the NHL) of waiver exemption. Frk, Ouellet, Sproul and Jensen are no longer waiver-exempt as of next season.
Before the offers to Helm and Miller (apparently Miller signing is based on Helm not signing, though?), I thought both Nosek and Frk had outside chances of making the roster - each guy brings something different to the table. I figured Nosek could fill the fourth-line/PK role for one of Miller/Helm, and Frk could jump into a role similar to Pulkkinen's last season.
I have a gut feeling Holland is going to explore the market, though. Without Pavel, this team's top-six probably consists of Zetterberg, Nyquist, Abdelkader, Tatar, Larkin and one of Mantha/Athanasiou/Jurco/Pulkkinen. I can't picture Kenny being comfortable going into next season with those guys. I have a feeling he's going to try to find some cap space and push hard for one of Backes/Brouwer/Ladd (not that I think he should).
