New York Islander Fan Central | 12/07/2007 03:13:00 PM | | |
National Post/Countless sources: Report Mark Recchi was placed on re-entry waivers Friday which means Pittsurgh would pay only half of his $1.75 million salary. Recchi's agent, Rick Curran blamed Penguins coach Michel Therrien for his client's diminished playing time.

Courier Post: Flyer centric writer Chuck Gormley has more from Recchi's agent on what went wrong in Pittsburgh and if Recchi is claimed by another club.

NYI Fan Central Comments
Now or never for the Islanders unless a team lower in the standings claims him first and they do not get an opportunity.

Given Paul Holmgren's comments about possible interest from the Flyers, reported interest from Calgary and other teams he's likely going to be claimed by someone.

Either way we will find out soon.
