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.
so you think the GM was lying when he said walker was a quality dman and important part of the team? Yeah was all part of the master plan. Acquire him to waive him. Makes sense.
