Seems weird we may lose this guy to the waiver wire after paying his medical bills and salary for half a season.
That is how it works. If a player is injured before being assigned to the AHL he is on the NHL team roster. That is a chance you take when you sign a player with an injury history.
The Bruins chose not to qualify him which resulted in Bitz being UFA and the Canucks signed him.
