I considered that. But what if there is not anyone available they want to claim? Or what if a guy they might like to claim does not fall to them? Then they left someone else (Chabada) vulnerable for no reason. I would hate to lose him. I guess the question is : are there any teams out there ready to give Chabada a crack at the NHL? It is not very likely a team would pick him and expose another player only to add him to an AHL roster. Or is it?

Based on his age and draft status it doesn't seem there is a lot of demand around the league for his services. But from the perspective of a Sound Tigers fan his loss would be the most painful on this list, followed by Hamilton.

This process is still one of the most mysterious aspects of following the NHL.
