Also keep in mind that 44DD is a pretty good sized player at 6'2 220. If 44DD is smart, he would add more muscle in the off season.
Teams do not pay more attention to the team that is waiving a player. Teams have their scouting staffs watching the AHL and will ask them for input on a particular player, not sit there waiting to claim a player simply because he came from the Stanley Cup champions.

No one from Boston got claimed last year, no one from Chicago the year before that. Team name has virtually no impact, nor should it.
