Good move by Atlanta, something we're not used to.
Could have done so by grabbing him on waivers as well. It's just a greedy move by the ownership. Save 1.8M but lose assets, great move.

Possibly also if they claimed him, they couldn't have know that other teams wouldn't have made claims behind them in the claim order. (Which would have affected their ability to trade him at the deadline for some futures).
Doesn't make much sense to be honest with ya. If teams are interested in an affordable, pretty reliable bottom pairing D-man with offensive flair, they will contact Atlanta at the deadline, not the other way around.

They are far from the cap.. ownership wants to save $, so he loses assets, great move indeed...
