They are not flush with options. Nashville may be the worst offensive team I have seen for a while. Watching their PP I am left wondering when the 1st unit is coming on, except that it IS their 1st.

Mike Fisher and David Legwand are a devastating 1-2 punch to defend against.

He'll have to work a lot harder to get the chances he was getting with Geno....

They have been unwatchable for a while. So bad. I loathe that team. No one thats really a problem just boring beyond belief for the past couple years.

Yeah, they're just trying to find a winger that can put a puck in the net basically...their offense is anemic, so they're hoping to catch lightning in a bottle with a couple of Quadruple-A guys...

As a Preds writer, I'm thrilled with this move. Anything and anyone should get a look on offense for this team and Boychuk is a serviceable player and will get a good shot in smashville.

I love this move too. I really liked Boychuk and felt with good minutes he could score. The Preds are just lifeless. Anything at all is better than what they have. None of their usual scorers are doing anything.

So this would mean that Carolina did not put a claim in because he's have been awarded back to them, right?

The Hurricanes have a better record so they'd be behind the Preds in the waiver order, or are you saying they get first dibs? I thought that wasn't the case with waivers.

I thought they did get first dibs on him since they lost him on waivers. Didn't this happen with Chris Bourque when the Pens claimed him from the Caps? They had first dibs once we put him back on waivers and they promptly claimed him.

No, it's based solely on current record.

Actually, two people confirmed for me that the "first dibs" thing with waivers is false. I was under that impression, in fact, I may have brought that notion to this board. I was mistaken and I'm not sure where I got the idea.

There is NEVER, as I understand it, any alterations to waiver priority under any circumstances. Carolina, if they had been awarded Boychuk, would have been able to send him down to their minor league affiliate without requiring waivers again because he did not meet each of the following requirements:

- 30 Days on Active Roster (met)
and
- 10 NHL games played (not met)

Carolina does not have first priority. Which brings new light to that Chris Kunitz transactions in October 2005. When Anaheim and Atlanta swapped him, Anaheim did not have first dibs...at that point it would be the reverse of the 2003-04 final standings.

My apologies that I misled previously on this rule, I was grossly misinformed.

Again, Carolina did NOT have "first dibs" on Boychuk. Unsuccessful claims are never revealed by the NHL, but there is good reason to believe that they did put in a claim because they could use the offense down in Charlotte and GM JR said that he would when he lost originally.

I am not as sour on Boychuk as other people are here. He will get much more of a chance in Nashville, good luck to him.

I like Boychuk. Too bad he couldn't have put a few pucks in the net.

He actually played a heck of a game. Almost buried a few, saw some 2nd pp time, and finally got some real linemates to play with. :slug:

He'll get a good look at in Nashville because they need any kind of offense possible. Last night, they scored about two weeks' worth of goals for them.

That had to be tough for Boychuk bouncing around a little bit, anxious whether he'd stick or not. Hope he makes it it Nashville, I like the Preds.
