We at NHLHS are proud to pat ourselves on the back. As reported, Hurricanes backup Michael Leighton is now the Flyers backup. Yesterday we discussed the merits of Leighton going through re-entry waivers and PREDICTED the backup going to either the Flyers or Rangers. Really glad we got this one right.
Yesterday we also predicted Aaron Ward and PA Parenteau clearing waivers. Both of these players did today as expected. Ward will stay with the Hurricanes while Parenteau rejoins the Hartford Wolfpack. The Rangers sorely missed the latter as he was responsible for both of their shootout wins and they failed to score entirely in the skills competition last night.
Ward may have some league-wide interest if he is to go through re-entry waiver at half the price (1.25 cap hit).
