Matt Stajan and the Waiver Draft

After the way Pat Quinn praised the play of Matt Stajan after the Ottawa game Fri night, I wonder how what happens in the waiver draft might affect his immediate future. It's a safe bet that Robert Reichel and Tom Fitzgerald will be left unprotected in the waiver draft. If one of those two players were mercifully picked up by another team, I think Matt Stajan will make the opening day roster. It's highly doubtful that Reichel will be picked up but some team out there, like a young rebuilding team may like Fitzgerald. If a spot opens up it may be Stajan's to take, not Alexei Ponikarovsky's. Quinn was really high on the way Stajan played in the 2-0 loss and it sounds like he wants him on the team, there's just no room for him, and that's too bad. It's a shame we have some dead weight and no way to shed it.
