    Brendan Smith Placed on Waivers; Clears; Assigned to HFD

    It could be a busy morning in Rangers Town.

    Not only did the Rangers re-call defenseman Neal Pionk earlier today, but according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, veteran defenseman Brendan Smith, who has struggled mightily all season since signing his long-term extension this summer, has been placed on waivers:

    Guy has been terrible and that contract could be another anchor for 3 more years. Move along.

    I do wonder though if something happened that prompted this, he wouldn't be the obvious candidate necessarily.

    Odd, given he was projected to join the leadership group.

    Leaders and assholes have a lot in common. It's just which side of the line. Won't go into it and choose not to believe me. Just saying what I've heard

    Added: I also find it curious that there were no trade suitors for him, especially this early out from a trade deadline where GM's typically get antsy for extra D help

    Then that's even worse given he'll be going to a rebuilding Pack team who are going to have to suffer his insufferable attitude. At least when Redden was demoted he was a consumate professional.

    Why would he be picked up if there were no suitors on the trade market? It's not like he couldn't have been traded for "future considerations".

    What a terrible signing.

    Hopefully he can get his shit together. We could use pre-Rangers Smith, too.

    Didn't liked his contract back last summer, will not miss him. Hopefully he'll be picked up.

    It was sarcasm, sorry if that didn't come across. I'm trying to articulate that it may be a scenario that they didnt want him around the roster any longer and weren't willing to hold onto him until they could find one.

    This signing was an epic fail.
