Wouldn't mind one of these contract spots being used on claiming Greg Mauldin (also waived today). He's a good skater, kills penalites and is physical. He would be a good fit as our 12/13th forward. He's also played C in the past, though not much this year. Think he got lost in the shuffle of Colorado's abundance of bottom line players. Doubt we claim him, but I'd be for it. He's pretty similar to Glass and better than Bolduc or Volpatti.
I thought that Andersson skated reasonably well.
The Winnipeg blurb about this probably sheds the most light on it. Two concussions this season, with one very recently. Also left the AHL the last time after getting hurt and missing the whole 03-04 season because of it. Seems like the small rink just plain isn't a good idea for him.
