Phillips put up over a point per game in the AHL last year and is only 24. Could be an intriguing option for a team like Montreal or Chicago.
Agreed. Chicago is probably a better option IMO. Better shot at consistent ice time. They’re really thin up front.
Someone may take. Flyer on Tufte.
So do all the players on this list specifically have to clear, or are any exempt?
All these will have to clear, they won’t be listed here if exempt
Zohorna should not be on waivers, and very well might not make it through them.
Look at all that new cap space for Seattle! Francis reigns supreme!
Tough thing about starting a team from scratch-you don’t start with any waiver-exempt players. Not much you can do about it.
After watching some camp and exhibition, Brian’s comment about Schultz in mailbag a week or so ago is looking pretty apt :/
The Pens team release doesn’t mention Zohorna being waived/re-assigned and they still have him on the active camp roster
There seems to be some confusion with him. You’re right that he wasn’t on the initial list, but then there reports later that they added him. Maybe they’re trying to be sneaky.
