    Re: Hamill on waivers

    Zach Hamil avg. gm day payment is $16,500.00 if another team picks him that will be still aprox. $500,000.00 for the Bruins mngt. to payout. For mngt. sake it will be better for him to stay in Providence and add more cap space for future. At the beginning I thought he was going show progress but now he looks like a AHLer lifer.

    After this season is finish he is an RFA and can still be in the Bruins control for minor league trades and deals. The providence still has other issues to deal with for future NHLers. Spooner Knight Kovaclchev Caron Hamilton Sauve Arneil are the Providence prospects hopefully a future FT Bruin.

    Coreect me if I'm wrong (BookBoy, DrCC our capoligists) ; If he gets picked up today , before noon, the Bruins don't have to pay any of his remaining salary but if he's picked up in the event of a recall while going through waivers then the Bruins have to fork out half his salary.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Hamill on waivers : No comparison to Benoit.  Benoit could score some goals in the NHL, he showed he could play. Zach hasn't shown anything.  At all.  Nothing.  Except for a couple of good passes. Benoit has some beef on him, Zach doesn't seem like he works out in the offseason. Zach has been called out before.  Nothing.  A change of scenery to Berne or Bolzano might do it for him, but that's about it.

    Zach holds his stick better.  Benoit's is all over place and every game he has 2-3 borderline high sticking calls on him.

    Hamill needs to put on some muscle and be more physical.

    [QUOTE]BsLegion, The Bruins will assign Hamill to Providence and pay half of his $65,000 AHL contract for the remainder of the season.

    thanks, I was referring if another team were to pick him up on current waiver being sent down and/or re-entry waivers.

    No surprise Hamill cleared waivers.

    Re: Hamill on waivers

    If another team picks him up, the Bruins pay nothing going forward for Hamill and receive a small check from the team that took him.  If he is claimed on re-entry waivers the Bruins pay half his salary (and cap hit) for the duration of his contract.  Zach didn't meet the criteria for re-entry waivers the first time, and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't now.

    Is there a way to get rid of a rfa?

    Can you do something like send yourself an offer sheet for him to work at the local convenience store for minimum wage?

    Zach is becoming like the bad dream that keeps coming back like Fernandez and Soderberg were.

    Re: Hamill on waivers

    NHL contracts are guaranteed.  It's something that might be an issue in the next CBA talks. But if you have signed a player, you have him till his contract is up. They could let him go at the end of the year.  Nothing wrong with him in Providence though, he doesn't make much, was playing well down there, and doesn't take up NHL cap space.  He's not awful.  A few weeks ago people were singing his praises.  Now he's a bum.  He's somewhere in the middle.

    At this point I'd rather have Dorothy Hamel instead of Zack. She can skate far faster, and hit harder, than her namesake.

    I seriously have to question the Bruin's scouting staff on this one. 8th overall & he looks like nothing but a 408th.

    You guys are being awful hard on the guy. I don't think its warranted. He hasn't made an glaring errors. He doesn't look out of place. He blends in. He's clearly not a top-six play making center but that doesn't mean that he's not a decent fill-in. I was really hoping he'd get his first goal. His effort level was constantly there and he did make some good plays.

    Re: Hamill on waivers

    I posted this on another thread, but check out his pre-draft stats and compare them to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. They are almost identical, and they are similar players who are small but think the game well.  Hamill was also considered way above his peers in terms of defensive preparedness having been coached by defense-first Kevin Constintine in Everett.  It wasn't just the Bruins scouting that had him in the top-10.  Hi career went downhill from there, but it's not like Boston went off the board to take him.

    I think the harsh posts are called for.  True he had a couple of games where he 'blended in', but then became invisible.

    I don't think the effort was there.  I don't recall any kind of significant hustle out of him at all.  I don't recall him making something out of a play that looked dead.  I don't recall any of his assists and certainly not one that looked sweet - for a playmaker kind of a guy he should have had ONE of those by now.  I haven't heard anything about him working hard in the off season.

    There is nothing I like about watching him.

    There's nothing about his play that makes me want to root for him.

    There is nothing I've heard that makes me want to root for him.

    the thing is, his play fit right in with the bruins recent slump. he had an opportunity to stand out among a bunch of teammates that were not playing that great. he looked no better than a slumping bunch of teammates. my feelings are that if you're a smaller guy, some other part of your game should be extra-effective, to make up fot your smaller stature(speed, puck handling,hustle,grit,passing). no part of his game stood out, his weakness on the puck stood out. not calling him a bust yet, he's still young at 23. all it would have taken was one huge shift where he dominated the ice, one highlight reel goal, one monster penalty kill, anything to show a glimpse of what could be.... but he showed nothing really. the fact that nobody picked him up off waivers is quite telling.

    I suppose thats fair. I still hope he does well just for the sake of seeing someone beat the odds and make everyone seem foolish for labeling him a bust.
