    I'm thinking Hammil hopes he gets claimed ... Burkie's big chance here.

    I think he'll go back to Providence, wouldnt suprise me if the Blue Jackets took a flyer on him. You can bet PC tried to deal him.

    What happened was a wrist injury his first season in Providence.  I remember reading at the time that it was very severe, and I had flashbacks to Allison and Samsonov both struggling to regain anything like their peak form after wrist injuries.  In Allison's case, doubt that he'd ever be the same player (proven wise) had a lot to do with not meeting his salary demands.  Samsonov never regained his scoring form either.

    It also seems like the dedication isn't there.

    It is interesting that a high draft pick like Hamill hasn't being picked up by another NHL team. Must be something to what Bookboy is saying. All you hear is how so many NHL teams are weak down the middle and yet here is Hamill for the taking. What would the Bruins expect to get back ? acouple of second round picks ? maybe a 1st ?

    Book, I recall that article as well. I believe the term they used on some of the bones in his wrist was "crushed",
    Still, it is what it is. Not fast, not strong, not exceptional hockey sense.
    I hope someone claims him for his sake.

    A first round pick? That train is never late.

    If a player is a complete failure, which Hamill is so far, no team is going to give up a first round pick or two seconds.  In fact, I'd be surprised if anything higher than fourth was even requested.

    There's obviously no requests now. Since he needs to clear waivers to be sent down, anyone can have him for free can't they?

    Who in their right mind would give up any draft choice for Hamil? The guy su.cks large. Take a pack of smokes for him and count yourself lucky. Time to apply at Jiffy Lube, Zach.

    Feel bad for the kid. Seemes like a nice guy. Hope he gets picked up by someone with less depth who will give him a shot, like Columbus or Florida.

    Good luck Zach....

    I hope he will remain a Baby B ...I am 100% sure that one day he will be a regular player in the NHL ...every time we lose a player I feel like a dad losing a child ....it makes me sad to see Ryder with the Stars and Recchi retired...

    Hamill is actually missing a bone in his hand that was crushed.  It is his lower hand too, which sucks for a center, and it happened soon after he turned pro.  He doesn't seem to have the ability to make the tranistion to the NHL level of play.  Really, he's barely AHL level.  No team would trade anything for him to the Bruins.  They know they aren't going to keep him in the NHL, they know he has to clear waivers, why would you trade?  The only teams that would want him are weak teams that would be high in the waiver order.  He's not good enough to play on a good NHL team.

    Don't think money will prevent a waiver claim. All the bottom-feeders still need to spend to stay a reasonable level above the floor.

    Islanders perhaps?

    Re: Hamill on waivers = no surprise

    It would be surprising if Hamill is claimed seeing that he can't consistently perform in the AHL so forget the NHL.  One more year for Zack under a new coaching staff to prove his worth.  Best case scenario is he starts the season off well with the PB's, maybe even leads the team in scoring, and then is dealt midway through the season for picks or pucks.  This kid will never play for the B's as Krej, Berg, and Seguin, will forever be ahead of him on the depth chart.  So trade him and get what you can or let him go at year end as he won't get offered a contract and then can try his luck in another organization.

    FYI, he already cleared waivers and will report to P-Bruins

    By the way he has played every time I've seen him live, I'd say he's also missing a muscle in the middle of his chest, right behind his sternum.
