    I wonder if he'll clear. I could see a team like the Canucks having interest..

      According to Lebrun, if he's not claimed, he'll be assigned to the Marlies

        I liked him. That's too bad. Good veteran.

          Welcome to the forum Terry!

          A stint with the Marlies could do Michalek some good. He could build up some confidence down there and regain his form.

            It's likely his contract that will keep him from being claimed. It's a shame, because in a limited role (and if healthy) I still think he's got something to offer.

              He used to have top-notch speed and good hands too, if I recall correctly.

                I know I'm biased but I can't accept Milan as anything less than an NHL player. He's only 31. I gotta hope that a team would be willing to give him a chance. I hope T.O would be willing to retain salary to move him somewhere so he can keep his career alive.

                  That's too bad. This is the crappy part about the salary cap. Michalek is very much an NHL player albeit an overpaid contract. Nobody wants him on their cap, though.

                  As for Owen's hope - the Leafs don't exactly strike me as a player-friendly team. I don't think they'd do that, especially for Michalek who has played less than 20 games for their organization.

                    Hell, I'd take him back in Ottawa - on a lower salary.

                      I know this is old news, but what do you sens fans think of him being sent down? I thought he was playing well as a Sens.

                        His brother is also playing in the AHL. To me they're both NHL players when healthy.

                        Was I the only person who didn't know the coyotes' affiliate was the roadrunners? How great is that?!

                            He was good in the first years. The last two, he'd lost all his speed due to injuries.

                              Did not know that. Awesome sauce.
