Yep, he cleared waivers yesterday at noon.
Jeff “Hambone” Hamilton is wearing the Sightless Eye once again. Now, I am approaching this with an open mind here. We can use Hambone’s cannon-shot on the power-play, and the time in Albany was far better for him than sitting in the pressbox here. So we’ll see.
Wade Brookbank also skated yesterday, which is good news since we’re playing the Thrashers and Panthers tomorrow and Thursday (we’ll need the fists). And Chad LaRose is skating for the first time since he broke his leg a month and change ago–but don’t expect to see him right away. He still has a lot of work to do before he gets cleared to play, but it’ll be very nice to see our happy little yip-dog out on the ice again.
Maybe for the playoffs. That would be fun, wouldn’t it?
