If McCormick clears, could this open a path for a Jones/McCormick swap? I remember seeing at least 1 Sabre fan suggest they should claim Jones and I think the Flames would like to move him, I am assuming the Sabres are in the same boat with McCormick.

Plus since Feaster took the reigns in Calgary he and Regier have made a couple deals.
That just seems like poor asset management, considering he has been playing, not a healthy scratch...unless they were "showcasing" him, which is really absurd. Plus not like Pegula cares about the salary...

No idea what this move is supposed to accomplish at all. Trying to trade him, fine...but no reason to put him through waivers unless you absolutely need the roster spot. Just hold on to him and maybe someone deals for him at the deadline or something.
