Didn't everyone else see the story that when Leighton is recalled Walker will be sent to the minors officially (already there on conditioning)? Or at least that is what rotoworld is stating. That is what I have been expecting since Walker was acquired. A trip to the AHL - he just delayed it due to injury. We just took on that contract to get rid of Gagnes. I don't think he was ever planned to be in the NHL. His 1.7M is a cheaper cap hit for a minor league player than Redden in New York and Snider has the money to pay it versus the folks in Tampa. That is why that trade doesn't bother me. Until Walker actually plays and starts causing us roster problems or points in the standings he means nothing to me. If he gets sent to the AHL, he never existed in my books.
