More on Schneider

I was re-reading James Mirtle's post about it. I didn't realize how waivers exactly worked.

Mirtle says,""The waiver system ranks teams worst to first based on their finish last season until Nov. 1, meaning Tampa Bay would have first crack at Schneider. The Kings, Thrashers, Blues and Islanders would then be next in line."

Now with that in mind, The Kings have already passed. So, in theory, we are next in the decision process. If that's true. I just ask DW, please, please please. Burke and Waddell are buddies. So let's hope at today''s town hall, we all get a little surprise. I'm a hopeful person if you haven't guessed.

do we seriously need ANOTHER team's trash? shouldn't we learn from the experiment that was kwiatkoswki? we don't wanna be the 02-03 caps picking up everyone else's waived players. you know he's 10 months shy of 40, right?

Maali-
But he's still pretty damn good. And everyone was surprised that Burke put him on waivers rather than trading him. He still has value; it's not like he's Alexei Zhitnik.

He's still a good player and he'd be useful as a leader to Toby and Bogo. And he's one of the few Jewish hockey players; always a bonus, I think.

Monsieur-
Thanks for reporting on that worst to first system. I mean, it's not like anyone else has mentioned this yet.

In all due respect, Schneider and Kwiatkoswki shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence.

Big mistake if we pass on him. Big.
