I would have thought that would be the first thing a team does after claiming a player?
The injury must have been worse than previously thought. The Habs knew he couldn't go for game 1 (due to some unknown lower body injury) and I guess after they dug a little deeper they found out he'll be out a lot longer. Only speculation on my part, but if he were only going to miss a couple of games I doubt Montreal would send him back to Philly.
Now it's up to the league to determine whether or not Betts was significantly injured before being waived. Considering how small a part Betts would play on either team, this is probably more about finances than anything right now.
