Greg Pateryn put on waivers



Greg Pateryn

LOS ANGELES – The Avs just put defenseman Greg Pateryn on waivers. If no NHL team claims him in the next 24 hours, he likely will either go to the taxi squad or, more remotely as a possibility, the Colorado Eagles.

Pateryn had a pretty good first game with the Avs, but didn’t look as good in others, including Sunday’s game in Anaheim. This move likely means Erik Johnson will return soon. There is a chance a veteran such as Pateryn will get claimed. With the NHL experience he has, it might be attractive enough for some team to bite.

We’ll see.

Superstreak Bonus!

The Avs, surprisingly I thought, are taking the day off. They just had a day off Saturday and are coming off a loss, but that’s the deal.

The Avs will resume their schedule Tuesday night against the San Jose Sharks at Ball Arena.

I thought he didnt look very good at all, best/worst case we get 2.25 in cap space to use elsewhere. Wonder if Joe is hoping he gets picked up.
I hope the Avs find their game I feel like we can lose this season pretty fast if they dont

This move doesn’t surprise me. I have a feeling Byram is earning a place and Sakic might feel that he would benefit from playing with the big team.

I wasn’t impressed at all with Pateryn. He seemed like the odd man out of D each game and made some very questionable defensive plays (bad clears, not dropping back quickly enough). Wouldn’t surprise me if he isn’t claimed, if he ended up with the Eagles.

chippy play

Yeah probably best for all that he gets picked up, though I still have nightmares about how thin we were at the end in the bubble.


I think the chances of him beign picked up are about 0.0%. If you look at his cap and the performance and every named that has been passed on waivers this far this season. Would love the cap space if that happened. Would be funny if the Wild picked him back.. But no.

Byram is definitely not going anywhere after five games, that much can be said after his three games. He’s ready, he’s help and his development needs these games.


Ya have to feel a little bad for the guy – he thought he’d just gotten traded to a cup contender and now he’s looking at the minors


The Wild are looking down on AVS right now. AVS are good on paper not so much on the ice, time to start earning the rep! It’s a short season.


I would think the taxi squad is more likely now that he cleared waivers.
