I'm curious, why was Finley on waivers in the first place? With the Sabres' depth at D he certainly wasn't going to make the NHL club out of camp. It almost sounds like they were hoping someone would claim him. Unless they had to send him through waivers to keep him in the AHL?
It was simply a housekeeping issue. NHL started back up, so certain players had to clear waivers to keep playing in AHL.
