Hearing Jokinen, Wallace to go on waivers at noon.

Cray Cray.

I'll be sad to see him go. I have some great memories of him in a Canes sweater.

But, I can't say I'm surprised. It needed to happen sooner rather than later.

Tough to see a guy that's played hard for us go, but that contract was terrible.

Sucks that we couldn't move Jussi for something. Maybe they are freeing up a couple of roster spots for a trade and those are the most logical cuts at this point.

Needed to be traded or cut. His contract was bad and he was playing awful.

I bet Jokinen was one of the pieces JR put in for that Murray trade that the Pens stole. I'm bothered by Wallace though he played the body and I liked that. I guess he didn't do much else.

Do we get compensation if someone signs him?

He may not even get claimed, Komisarek a pretty good defenseman who didn't get claimed because of his 3 million dollar contract. In my opinion, if he does get claimed, it will be by a playoff team.

Look for a trade of some sort in the next 24-48 hours.

    • I think he has another two years of decent to slightly above average play left. He does benefit from our dline but is a solid if not more type player. If he was 23, I'd definitely expect him to explode but it's just clicking for him at 30(?) after 6 years in so like I said a couple years left of similar play as last year at very best but not much else I see.
    • What I noticed is how important Star and KK have been with giving Addison opportunities. Don't get me wrong; Addison is still a beast. But you'd see a lot of KK and Star helping Addison get those lanes to the QB. But what was shocking was how fast and good he was later on in the season. He really started getting it, and I think it's just the beginning. I would be surprised if he doesn't get double digit sacks this year.
