He did come to camp. He was sent down. Many reports of him acting as though he already had a spot. Not the amount of effort you'd expect someone fighting for a spot to have. He had a good end to the season with the Jets last year and got a training camp spot.

I think Wright was claimed because Machacek was going to go back down. He didn't earn his spot.

I think all this debate over a prospect like Machacek is pointless anyway. If he's as good as some people claim, he'd be wasted on the fourth line, and that's where he'd end up, just like Wright.
