We could have tried to pick up Teemu Laakso on waivers. He's not a great dman, but neither is Walker. Granted, Holmgren might not have known Laakso would be on waivers when he decided to recall Walker, and some other team might snag him before us.

We would be back to 50 contracts if we went that route, but we'd at least not be paying 850k for someone to not play for us.
