Great haul for him too. Even if AStew doesn't work out, we waive him and give the Monarchs some depth.
If he doesn't clear waivers, his contract is off the books
. In the best scenario, Sutter lights a fire under his you-know-what and he becomes a solid bottom-six player for us. PLUS we get two picks.
Yeah. Even if we lost AStew on waivers, that's still Westy for a 4th and 6th. John Scott netted the Hawks only a 5th. Barch and a 6th only got a 5th and a scrub prospect. Enforcers rarely get traded and when they do, its for one late pick really. We got two and a 4th is a pretty good thing with DL drafting.
