Indirect help for Bingo since it is one less body that needs to be called up.

Interesting. What exactly happened to Svatos that had him fall so far down the Avalanche depth chart??

Just a warm body for the rest of the season. I would like Ottawa to find a couple more of those.

Good news classmate!  We got a warm body to fill the roster which means we can send you back a player like Brian Lee!

Oh wait.  :bag:

Sorry. Yes, I know I got my forwards and defense mixed up.  But the joke isn't funny if I change it


It's a free look.  We need some guys on the roster and he has scored some in the past.

At the end of this year.

The explanation is simple.....he wasn't even playing with the Avs.

Started 2010-2011 in the KHL, was brought back by St. L, then claimed by Nashville.  PLayed 9 games with them.  Seems like Nashville claimed him just to keep him from St. Louis.

Could be the 11 points and -13 +/- last year in 54 games.  He had one 30+ goal season, but that was five years ago.  his best point total in the NHL is 50.  This guy couldn't even stick in the KHL for a full season this year. He hadn't played in weeks until he ended up in Nashville, where he didn't even dress consistently.  I know he's a warm body on a cheap contract, but I really don't expect much.

I'm pretty sure the Sens will have a few more opportunities to claim some more players off of waivers in the next week and hopefully be able to send some more players down to Bingo.
There are good coaches and there are bad coaches, the real question is "Do you want this person to be a role model to your kids for the next 6 months".  That's the question you have to ask yourself.

Maybe, but I can't see them claiming anyone with a significant price tag attached.  Melnyk will not want to take on salary in what is now a lost season.   I'd like to see them pick up a couple more, especially a goalie.  I've said before that I think the best thing for the long term development of some of these young kids (and thus the Senators organization as a whole) is to have them involved in the AHL playoff fight.  But given the Murray's attitude towards success in the AHL (which I completely disagree with), I'm not going to hold my breath.

I see this as a rental to help with our goal of finishing dead last.

I haven't heard of this guy since his 30 goal season.

Yup, organizational tank in process.  Lazy as Kovalev was, he was still putting in some goals here and there.  With Anderson doing well, have to get the goals per game down!!!!!!!!!!!!!
