Babchuk was acquired in a change of scenery swap for another UFA and I can't find anything to suggest they are negotiating. Calgary is a mess, if they can get a prospect and a pick for him they need to do it.

As for who gets cut Smaby and Ritola are the obvious choices. Smaby can be waived and help Norfolk for a few months if he clears and I would imagine Ritola clears with the uncertainty meinere's disease, that would give him a lot more minutes in the Ad's playoff race.

I don't have a name but perhaps we can flip Smith or Ellis for a defenseman with an equally bad contract.
