The rules for the waiver draft are like the trying to define the exact rules of the Matrix -- just when you think you have it figured out...
I've been a long-time advocate of moving Leschyshyn for the simple reason I would rather trade him than lose one of the "three" to waivers. I even mentioned it in the latest article on HF. Now somehow Pothier is exempt? As Puck said, I don't understand how that happens at the age of 26, but "we'll take it".
And Muckler better hang on to Christer Olsson or I'm cancelling my season tickets. He'll turn out to be a steal before things are all said and done.
The universe will not be stable until Olsson does something to prove that that deal does something for the Senators. Nothing can be that unbalanced and not be sorted out in some way. Naslund and Stojanov is another example, but at least Naslund is threatening to retire soon.
