I'm alright with this move. Deal a guy who likely had no future in the organization for a guy who can take the lighten the load on McIlrath in the short term when it comes to fighting. Guy might be able to work his way up as a 13th forward as well.

I think it just makes more sense to make a trade than claim a guy like this on waivers. Keeps your contract flexibility so we can add more bodies. More importantly, we don't have to send out any bodies at the trade deadline in order to bring in a rental or two to bolster the lineup. Our organizational depth isn't solid enough for us to be shipping off prospects for rentals.

Edit: Plus if we had claimed him off of waivers, we'd have to waive him again to get him to CT. Could lose him that way.
