I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.

    1. So Fil and Frans would have to Clear waivers before they go to Taxi Squad?

      I will have to read up what the difference is between going to GR and Taxi squad.

      Like lazy a$$ Dubois once of the Blue Jackets could not have been sent to Taxi squad rather than being a clown and sitting on the bench the whole game.

      Maybe a lot of reading. I thought it was simply added to the Roster but could not play until moved to the NHL roster to fill a spot on the Big Teams Roster.

      In short, Fil and Frans need to be waived and then bought out?

      1. Yes, Filppula and Nielsen would require waivers to be sent to the taxi squad. They CANNOT be bought out during the regular season.

  1. Does this more likely mean at least a couple of the protocol’d forwards are close to being cleared, or more like standard in between series cap management?
