Grabner: The First to Go

TAMPA -- Michael Grabner has been waived by the Panthers and if he clears, he'll be starting in Rochester. The Panthers say I will have the rest of the cuts soon. Check back...

WHAT????????????? What the hell is going on, this is a joke


I saw 2 televised games of this pre season and thought he was really and I mean really a useless player. I am really glad that mmanagement saw it 2. Really good move by the cats. Keep Timmins or Duco instead.

Not what I was expecting--but nonetheless, I trust the management a wee bit more now than in the past!

Matt, Timmins and Duco were sent down almost a week ago.

I guess they don't feel they need to score any goals this season. :(

so explain the genius of the Ballard trade...did we screw up scouting grabner, or did we let PD's bias against Ballard basically have us give him away for a draft choice?
either way...we screwed up.

He probably won't clear waivers... some people were high on him last year. I wouldn't be surprised if Vancouver reclaims him if they have room.


"Florida Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that G Jacob Markstrom has been assigned to the Rochester Americans (AHL). In addition, D Joe Callahan, RW Michael Grabner and LW Andrew Peters have been placed on waivers."

As I said, don't gift a spot on the top two lines to a player like Grabner. There's a reason a team like Vancouver lets a talent go like Grabner, fo such a cheap price.

If he wasn't good enough and they knew it, why trade for him?

Vancouver has a lot of young forwards.
Why didn't they hold out for Hansen,
Shirokov or Schroeder?

Only the Leafs will struggle to score as much as the Cats this season but at least they have Kessel.

By my count Adrian Foster is still here. Is that true?

this better be a joke???

hey there im a canuck fan and rumour is that canucks gm herd about grabner on waivers and is looking to pick him back up ! i just thought i would swing by this site to see what the news was and wow this is awsome


how long does a player stay on waivers for GR?
until ahl

24 hours

Just ridiculous to lose him on waivers, but he didn't earn a spot in camp. No gifts from Deboer or Tallon - you earn your spot on this team.

Boy we are not going to score very much this year.

if he didn't earn the spot, what benefit does he get from seating in the stands watching. If he was soo good like everyone says why did vancouver traded him away.
