Put on waivers this morning. So the dogs it is if he is not claimed

Thats too bad, really. At 29, he seemed like a good fit behind Price. I guess the problem is that we still dont know if Price is ready to become #1. If he's not, perhaps Halak is. Sanford, on the other hand, will probably always be a 30 or less game a year backup.

well yeah, but I was thinking more along the lines that I don't want to see him with the Habs because it might mean Halak was dealt. :mellow:
or it might mean price is dealt which might be good for halak.

Yeah, it was a very weird pickup. A good one, as I think he's a solid goalie that can come in and do cleanup work or as a fill-in for injury, but given that a player like Halak wouldn't garner much in a trade, there's not much we can do to keep him up. He must have been brought in to play in the AHL, but we'll see if he even gets through waivers.

Its weird theres been no official word about clearing waivers. I would assume he has cleared. Not too many teams are gonna grab guys off waivers at this point, as they would have to keep anybody they pick up on their NHL roster. Teams are struggling enough to par down their own rosters as is before the season begins. Adding another player at this point only creates additional headaches. You would have to be a sure fire player to make the team before anybody takes you.
