Doubtful. They have several goaltending prospects in the system as is, some they think pretty high of. Also, I don't know what they'd be sending us that we'd need that they'd also be willing to move. Reports have it they are close to an extension for Nabokov, so can't see them dealing for Bernier if he's extended. Also, Streit is supposedly close to an extension, which would be a great target for a rental D-man for us.

I'd wager they are waiving Dipstick so he can go to the farm and get in some playing time. After the past few seasons, he really needs it. And no one is going to claim him with that contract, so it's just a formality to send him through waivers.
