Bobby Farnham Claimed Off of Waivers by the Devils


It appears as if the Bobby Farnham Era has ended here in the Wyoming Valley and Pittsburgh, in general as today the New Jersey Devils have claimed winger Bobby Farnham off of waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It was Ray Shero who signed and John Hynes who once coached Farnham. So it’s a reunion of sorts.

Our old buddy Jonathan Bombulie had this feeling way back in June that something like this could happen. I’ll let you all know when Jonathan gives me the winning Powerball numbers and when I win we all can go for a steak dinner someplace.

However you feel about Farnham, whether you love him or hate him, he continues his dream of playing in the NHL which is every hockey players intention.

    The excitement that Bobby brought to the arena at Mohegan Sun will be sorely missed but I am happy for him that he will be playing in the NHL. John Hynes must be tickled pink at such a windfall!
