Adam Mair on Waivers

by Anne

Maxim Afinogenov.

Nathan Paetsch.

Henrik Tallinder.

Just a few of the players we have BEGGED Darcy to trade or waive over the last two seasons. Today, he decided to do just that. He put a player on waivers.

That player: ADAM MAIR?!

Why Mairsy? I just don't understand why he was in the doghouse. I understand that we were playing fine without him, but I assumed he'd be hanging out in the pressbox with Paetsch until his services were needed. Apparently not?


Nooooo!!!

Maybe Darcy is trying to clear cap space for something? Even if we're off the hook for Mairsy's entire salary, Paille and Mairsy's combined cap hit is only $1.91 million.

Sad times.

ETA: Even though he was waived, Mair still practiced with the Sabres this afternoon. Ho-kay?

    I know! He worked hard and never took a night off, Lindy liked him, the fans liked him. Don't get it.

    We kind of took him for granted because he's been around so long, I guess? I really didn't think he'd be waived or traded, I thought he might leave as a UFA, but I didn't think he'd be waived.

  7. Actually, just read on Sabres Edge that even though reports say he has been waived, he's practicing with the team today.

    Whaaaa? I just read that too. Maybe if they all just ignore it, it'll go away?
