    Well given how awful our defense is it's hard to fault this claim all that much. Looks to me that they plan in sending Heinola back after the HC.

    Is there an open roster spot right now, only carrying 1 extra forward and defender? Is he better than Bitetto? Will they both play? The questions are endless!

    I'm not sure Sbisa is even better than Bitetto :laugh:, like I get our D sucks but can't we try and find someone half-decent to play?

    It's honestly comical the obsession this franchise has with gritty bottom pairing d-men that get hemmed into their own zone.

    Not that it matters at all, but does this affect the future order of teams for waivers claims? Do they go to the end of the line of teams or anything for claiming the next player?

    Mostly just strikes me as a dick move, unless they like had a weird side deal with Anaheim so that the Jets would be able to claim him instead of needing to waive him themselves? Lol

    Maybe Sbisa might help , the Jets need some defenseman . I would think Heinola going is going down to the Moose or Finland .

    Saw he was waived on the ticker at the bottom of my TV screen last night and thought to myself "PLEASE don't do it, Chevy"...

    No. Waiver order is determined by standings (pts%).

    I guess they signed him, put him on waivers with the intent of putting him in the minors and the Jets foiled their plans. I'm sure there is some serious head scratching going on in Anaheim at this move.

    I'm thinking we should have taken John Scott up on his offer. :nod:

    That's true - Pionk has been a nightmare.

    They are on waivers for a reason. It costs us nothing. To me, this is just depth - and I think it confirms we will see Buff back, I'm still thinking after the Christmas break.

    Yup. 1 more game for Heinola. But, good grief! Sbisa?

    Surely we could do better than Bitetto, Dahlstrom and Sbisa by sifting through the junk heap.

    I'll give us Pionk, I like him so far (small sample though).

    It's the Dahlstrom, Bitetto, Strait, Harrison, Mark Stuart, Sbisa, Kulikov, (am I forgetting any others?) that are, well, terrible.

    I think it means they are going to send Heinola back to Finland.

    I think Poolman is another Jesse Lumsden.
