As for the Forsberg allusion, I believe it was because UFA signings aren't allowed after trade deadline, not because of the waivers. Which is more or less why it never happened, because a non-playoff or lower teams then the one that would've signed him would claim him most likely.


But what do I know. Someone get some links...

He wouldn't be eligible for the playoffs OR the regular season if claimed by another team
