I was. Sorta. Kinda.
Until I looked at the waiver situation. And then I wasn't.
All together now: "WAIVERS SUUUUUUUUUUCK".
Really. Only Patches, Sergei, Maxwell and.... somebody and Pyatt can go back to the Hammies without clearing waivers. That's right. If they want to send Stewie or Dagger back, they have to clear waivers. Which means we take the huge risk of letting some idiotic team picking them up.
When it comes down to Patches or Sergei being sent back, then really, there's no contest. Patches has been less injured and he's had a great training camp + a good pre-season. Sergei has been..... injured and hasn't looked fantastic. Maybe this'll work as a nice wake up call for big bro Andrei too (*coughs*).
So back to Hammie-town with you, Sergei. Please don't sulk (although I suspect you will for a little bit). Go out there, light up the AHL (and squash a few Marlies for me, okay?) and come back. I want you to come back, but not if you're going to be all mopey and lazy. I don't want that.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd.....apparently the Leafs fans want to waive Vesa. DON'T WAIVE VESA. C'mon, it's bad enough the Flyers ditched Squeaky Marty. I want to have my fun laughing at the Leafs and the Flyers. KEEP THE FAILTENDERS.
