At this point I'm trying to figure out why Murray is making all these moves, it seems the Ducks have an abundance of marginal defensemen. Is he going to keep Fowler past 9 games, call Sbisa back up, make a trade? With Fowler "probable" for the next game I think there are only 5 defensemen ready.

Not really. While I still don't like the idea of Grabner being waived, and would have rather sent Bitz down, McArdle and Bitz are similar players. McArdle being waived isn't a big thing. I don't think he'll be claimed, but if he does, no biggie. We already have Hordichuk and Bitz for toughness at forward, and Duco in the system who could be close to NHL ready. That's all McArdle really is at this point, a fighter with some offensive upside but nothing to get crazy about.
