Yeah... the waiver claims actually got really interesting last night.
It becomes evident which teams really felt the need to grab a solid replacement guy and how much they were willing to shell out.
I did have a bid in on Conacher - and like a good poker player, I won't tell you how much it was... except that it was less than $26! LOL.
Players claimed in the Smythe last night:
$26 Conacher, Cory (TB)
$11 Prust, Brandon (MON)
$4 Kovalev, Alex (FLA)
$3 Sbisa, Luca (ANA)
$3 Bouchard, PM (MIN)
$3 Diaz, Raphael (MON)
$2 Leighton, Michael (PHI) - Pengwin7 claim. Damn Leighton/Bryz threads, made me all nervous.
$2 Prospal, Vaclav (CBJ)
$2 Kostka, Mike (TOR)
$1 Peckham, Theo (EDM)
$1 Greiss, Thomas (SJ)
$1 Raymond, Mason (VAN)
$0 White, Ryan (MON)
$0 Boll, Jared (CBJ) - Pengwin7 claim. Fed up with M.Samuelsson's damn groin. Costing me games played!
