Leighton had spent too much time in the NHL, and Backlund had spent too little time in NA, to be exempt. Something like that.
I think it's too last minute because Leighton has to clear waivers which means he'd be eligible tomorrow after noon if not claimed. I thought Bacashua (sp?) would have been recalled today.
