Not saying it will happen, but again, it's another stupid risk.
Someone should have claimed Leighton for the same reason... no real risk, could have just waived him if the back was wonky. So, who knows?

850K for a depth D that has played in the NHL is a great deal, though. Hell, I'd be happy with Walker at that price.
