right, and common sense would surely indicate that were there ACTUALLY a 99.9% chance Sturm would get claimed, he wouldn't be practicing on the 1st line less than 24 hours before the team's next game.
unless he knew Washington was going to make a claim and waived him for that purpose, other than what he suggested as mere "roster flexibility," then fine... it just becomes a case of Dean talking out the side of his neck. if it was indeed about roster flexibility, there WAS another far less risky option available to him, and instead he opted to gamble on Sturm - a player he was likely willing to lose should it play out that way.
willing to lose and intending on losing are two different things.
