IIRC, if you pick up a player on waivers you can't trade him unless you offer him to other teams who put in a claim.

According to Habsinsideout, Metropolit will apparently be facing the Flyers tonight.

TML have no reason to add a borderline NHL defender as they have enough of them as it is. Not even to try and trade him. He is on waivers because nobody wants to trade for him.

GM's understand the cap crunch that the Flyers are in. Why not wait until they have to place him on waivers to get him for free? It's isn't because there is no market for him.

For your sake, I hope Martin St. Louis never ends up playing for the Blues. I'd be worried your head might explode!

I see a few posters annoyed that their team did not grab player X--keep in mind that there is a 50 contract line for teams and sometimes teams have a self imposed cap. some teams are at 45-49 and don't want to tie up another contract
