I COULD see a playoff team (like tampa) trying to snag him, to slow us down in the playoffs....but that would just aggravate our management against the other team, PLUS they'd have to keep him for another year, so teams like boston/pitt/wash wouldnt want the extra cap...
snagging him off of waivers would hurt the team who takes him, as much as it would hurt us (assuming hes not good enough to play on an NHL club...other than ours)
Nobody's going to claim him to vastly improve their goaltending for the playoffs...ML makes for a decent, cheap backup next year at 770k (a very attractive price tag for a backup), and there are always teams looking for a serviceable backup year to year.
