Predators Go The Waiver Wire Route

from John Glennon of the Tennessean,

The Predators have made their second waiver claim in as many days, adding forward Zach Boychuk — a former first-round pick — on waivers from Pittsburgh.

The move comes one day the Predators picked up forward Bobby Butler on waivers from New Jersey. Butler has 39 points in 108 NHL games.

“The bottom line is that it’s just not working with our current group and we have to make some changes,” Predators general manager David Poile said. “Butler can score. He has proven he can score at the NHL level. He can score like dynamite in the minors.

“Boychuk has scored really good in the minors. Can it translate to the NHL? We’ve had good success with (acquiring) younger players and developing them. We’ll find out.”

Hold on a second, I don’t get it.  He’s the GM, isn’t he supposed to say “I like our team”?

This guy sucks. He’s small, has no brain and is softer than baby wipes.

Enjoy!
