HockeyBuzz.com among other sources have been circulating rumors that Randy Jones is going to be waived tomorrow. There are several sources reporting with this insider news. We’ll have more as it becomes available. It makes sense and we’ve been pondering this move with the rest of the media since the summer. With Ole-Kristian Tollefsen providing a cheaper duty on the 3rd pair and Danny Syvret shaping up nicely on the Phantoms, this is a drop to keep JVR and/or Pyorala on the team or in the system. I expect to hear more tomorrow.
CSN Philly’s Tim Panaccio has reported that Randy was placed on waivers this morning. He reports that the Rangers have interest but cannot commit due to possible cap issues. Signing Blair Betts, JVR, and Pyorala would take a lot of cap room and would much easier without Jones’ overpaid $2.75 million cap hit. If he clears, Jones will be back where he started on the Phantoms. More to come.
