    No it means that since Weiss is out for the season, the Panthers needed a forward and are giving a chance to Yakubov.

    I am very pleased with this waiver claim… this guy has potential and deserves a chance to develop. With a young environment in Florida and the coaching staff willing to develop young players, Yakubov may finally get things going for a brighter future.

    Finally i’ll get to see what is up with this guy and his potential.

    I have yet to see anything on this waiver signing. Can anyone confirm or provide a website with news of the trade?

    Yakubov is not a bad player. He is said to have a bit of a chip on his shoulder and is known for uninspired play. Keenan has been known to pluck some diamonds out of the rough and he turned around Jokinen’s career. Maybe he can work another miracle. He’ll have to make sure Jacques Martin doesn’t stiffle the dude’s abilities.
