One thing that waivers might do is reset those players that think they have value and just think the coach isn't being fair to them or whatever...you just got passed over by the entire league when it would cost them basically zero to acquire you.

I don't think Ritchie thought that. Or has any thoughts, really.

I don’t get what Clifford brings to the table other than 8 mins of wasted ice time.

More than Ritchie does in 10 minutes, at least based off what we've seen so far this season. I thought Clifford played fine in the games he was in.

This is a good point.  They need Ritchie to contribute.  Now he's got yet another chance with Marner & Engvall out.  He looked a little better before the holiday shutdown.

How long before Ritchie clears waivers, man I hope someone picks him up.

We'll find out at 2:00

I've never been more excited for a waiver wire deadline.
Haha...too funny....I think you might be disappointment...

It’s kind of a win-win though. He clears you can send him down and save some cap space and worst case you’ve got a body for the playoffs. You can’t tell me that he contributes less than Clifford would.
I agree. I think he will be useful in the playoffs should he be needed.

Alright. I guess I have to pay better attention because he just struck me as useless.

I'm with you. I'm not a fan of  Clifford at all. Ritchie is effective screening in PP2.

That was an unbelivable save.

Also anyone remembers when Don Cherry went on a rant rage that the Leafs took Nylander and not Ritchie ?

Yep, it was referenced recently when Ritchie came to the Leafs. Scary that there are so many people who think like Don Cherry that Ritchie was better than Nylander primarily due to size and nationality of being Canadian.  Notice I didn't say birthplace since they're both born in CANADA! HEYOOOO GOOD OLD CANADIAN BOY WILLY NYLANDER!

It won't change peoples thoughts on the trade, which is understandable, but at least Kerfoot's having a solid season. 24 points in 33 games, on pace for 59 points. 20 of those points are at 5-on-5 (virtually zero PP time), which is a pretty crazy ratio. He's currently 2nd on the team in 5-on-5 points, just 1 behind Tavares. Also one of the teams top penalty killers.

He's on a bit of a bender right now with 8 points in his last 3 games so those offensive stats a bit boosted because of that. I doubt he hits 60 points and he'll certainly get passed by at least a couple players in 5-on-5 scoring by the end of the season, but he's still been a solid complimentary player for the top-6.
