We don't know if he was put in the deal by us or Carolina, maybe they were dumping a roster guy as well? If we really, really wanted him, then you have to think that there are plans to rid the team of Pock or Strudwick. You can't have 3 #7 defensemen hanging around. Probably the most expensive of all 3 will get waived.
I still think the game plan is to go into camp and see who the best 7 guys are. There won't be a problem moving a guy like Malik or Mara after camp or when injuries start piling up for whoever. Maybe it's us.
I believe the most expensive of the three is Pock....they aren't going to waive him.
