I hope its goodbye forever.

Jeff Taint? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Does this mean more playing time for Bill Thomas? I hope so.

It also kinda forces Kennedy to play center on the 4th line, no? Unless they're just going to double shift Sid or Malkin there.

This is truly a sad, sad day.

And we let Hossa go to keep him. Sad.

Unexpected, but I do think that Bill Thomas is capable of playing the role Taffe did last season. Quite happy that Biz survived as well.

I dunno.

I think I'd rather see Biz Nasty on a more daily basis than I would Godard.

good luck to taffe. the guy was nothing but a pro here and is a solid 3rd or 4th line option for any team

That was my first thought as well, but I was hoping for Berard or Murphy.

Might as well give Bis and Thomas a chance to develop. I do hate to see Taffe get waived, but at the same time, he is easily replaceable.

Thomas seems like a right-handed Taffe to me. Consider me shocked, though. I never would have guessed that Thomas and Bissonnette would still be here and Taffe, Stone, Beech, etc. wouldn't.

They probably want Kennedy to be their 4th line center...

Kennedy/Godard/Thomas (Biz)....

Underwhelming but whatever...

We assume someone will claim him. I think he will be, he's a solid fourth-liner and a pretty good guy. He's easily replaceable, but like I said he's a good teammate and all around good guy. Good luck to him.

Moves like this really makes me question the Penguins organization's commitment to winning.
