The Rumour Mill: Waiver Wire Bonanza

With the deadline for teams to get themselves under the salary cap coming at 3 p.m. today, a lot of players are being run through the waiver wire to shed payroll from their respective NHL teams. Not just lesser-knowns, though, but even some bigger names (with Nikolai Khabibulin being a pretty darn big one). Here is a list tabulated by Chris Wassel of Most Valuable Network, and their statistics, as tabulated by myself:
  • Peter Schaefer, LW, Boston Bruins: 556GP, 98G, 161A, 259P
  • Kyle McLaren, D, San Jose Sharks: 719GP, 46G, 161A, 207P
  • Matt Pettinger, LW, Vancouver Canucks: 354GP, 56G, 49A, 105P
  • Jason Krog, C, Vancouver Canucks: 198GP, 21G, 37A, 58P
  • Aaron Downey, RW, Detroit Red Wings: 239GP, 7G, 9A, 16P
  • Boyd Devereaux, C, Toronto Maple Leafs: 604GP, 61G, 107A, 168P
  • Gilbert Brule, C, Edmonton Oilers: 146GP, 12G, 20A, 32P
  • Aaron Johnson, D, Chicago Blackhawks: 146GP, 7G, 21A, 28P

I don't really see much help for our NHL squad, but if any of those players were to play in Binghamton that could really help that squad--they're pretty short on defence in Bingo.
