    I guess were about to find out how desperate some teams are for goaltending help.

    I bet he clears.

    Default [Waived] Scott Darling

    This is surprising news to me, given the Flyers are clearly in the market for a goalie.

    The Flyers are better off sticking with what they have instead of trading for Darling and that ugly contract.

    Elliotte Friedman I believed had spoken about this being a possibility. Its tough, but given how he has played and the fact that they think they can win now, they can't be waiving Mcilhenny (wrong spelling I know). Will be interesting to see if Philly swipes him up like you said.

    I agree, but this is the Flyers we are talking about. The Flyers who just fired the only patient decision maker they had. The guy now making the calls is one that is known for giving out bad contracts... so whats another bad contract on his resume. haha

    I'm willing to bet the Hurricanes called for a trade. They wouldn't just throw a big contract on waivers without knowing how other GMs feel.

    As a Darling speculator, I'm desperately hoping that the 'Canes called around for trades, and the best they got (from Philly) was "we won't send you anything, but if you put him on waivers, we'll take the contract".

    A larger note for Fantasy Hockey purposes is that they also placed Zykov on waivers.

    We all know Darling won't get claimed (and was signed to a big contract far too early), but where will Zykov end up?

    Zykov took a while to figure out the AHL so it might be a matter of him struggling for a while before finding a way to be more useful at the NHL level.

    Any team going younger should be jumping all over Zykov - Ott, Arz, Van, EDM, LA, -- there's no way he should clear when so many teams could use him.

    Back to the team that drafted him? The Kings could use some youth in their lineup.

    Signed this year and next at league minimum. I will be surprised if he clears.

    Best description I've seen of Darling (or his play during his tenure with Carolina): a solid, above-average, number two.

    It will certainly be interesting if Zykov clears.
