I think we use the worst waiver process available as an option. (Edit: maybe first come first served is worse.)

I don't think the worst-to-first method is a true indicator of a teams strength. Ex/ Grreaseballs was the second worse team in the standings last year and gets second priority. This process doesn't account for the players a team like Greaseballs can activate/acquire from the farm/auction. Greaseballs was not the second worst team in the league 6:00 tonight.

Basing the priority list on the standings at the waiver claim deadline each week would be a little better, but I think we should get rid of the worst-to-first idea altogether.

Someone mentioned this before... Mike, I believe... we should use a Blind Bid waiver process (seems appropriate given the poker influence in the pool).

Blind Bid (BBID) A waiver claim placed on a free agent for a certain dollar amount using the teams allowed blind bid budget. These bids cannot be seen by other teams. The highest bidder will win the player.

We'd just have to decide what the starting budget would be and some other little details.

Lou Lamoriello is a stubborn old man and getting him out of Toronto was one of the best moves the Leafs made.

Hurts the team though. They were hoping to get a good look at him at center. Still, not much of a suspension for him personally. Perfect example of selfishness.

Scored 154 points and cashed all double ups comfortably. My alternate lineup with Antonio Brown would have scored about 135 and not cashed.

2/2 this year so far

They are both eligible for the Exemption List. They don't count against your cap and cannot be used at any point during the regular season or playoffs.

That Humboldt opener last night was heartbreaking. Easy to forget the toll on the survivors. It was on full display last night.

There is a politics thread on this forum. Is it to much to ask to have the McCain discussion there?
