I said it last night, although it is a bit dirty, Svatos was in play and Poile had to make a move to inject some goal scoring skill into the lineup with a simple waiver claim.

As has been discussed repeatedly, we don't have the pieces right now to finish all the chances that have been created. Svatos is a guy that is known for working hard and finishing the chances he gets. He will not be a savior, but he is a desperately needed injection of "proven" offensive talent into the lineup when we're most needing it.

Poile said today on NHL Live right after the waiver claim that the coaching staff and management met last night and discussed the issue of 5 goals in 5 games and whether or not to make a claim on Svatos. They slept on it and made the decision about 30 minutes prior to the 12 noon EST deadline and did in fact get him.

There's not much available right now, but if Svatos can give the Preds the same boost as Jan Hlavac did a few years ago, I'll take it!
