Yeah, Chaput is going to be an NHL regular sooner than later. Big strong kid. Smart. Character. He's very comparable, in his favour, to McGinn in every way - and younger. I thought it was a good draft pick, and also worth trading him for something the big club needed when Sestito came over.
At this point, Sestito has failed to crack the roster after many attempts. We've got guys the coach likes better for the 4th line. In fact, with no other deletions and after Read comes back, the 4th line will be comprised of 3 of: Talbot, Fedotenko, McGinn, Rinaldo, Knuble, HarryZ.
There is never going to be room for Sestito in our top 6 lines, so there is no point worrying if someone picks him up. Waivers were designed so guys who can play in the league eventually get a chance instead of being buried in the minors forever.
It would also free up a contract spot for us to pick someone else UP too....
As far as Leighton goes, he'll be a Phantom until they need him, the team clearly likes having Boosh around.
