From a logistics standpoint, I'm not sure I see him being claimed.

That said, if Derek Smith is out of the lineup, I'm assuming that means Chris Butler is somehow still in the NHL...? In that case, claim on...I'm sorry, but I think he's just awful.

Chris Butler theme song...

We only have 45 contracts and have millions in cap space and have been told that we can spend to the cap. Feaster wants to get young, big, and stronger and Urbom does that over Smith in every department. Feaster said in his press conference on Monday the only players they will bring in are those that fit their criteria.

TLDR: Urbom is exactly what Feaster has said he wants, I would be shocked if we didn't put a claim in.
