Wow, his stock has dropped.

Seems like it may have been a cap move

Leino got more than enough chances to play.

In fact, he got too much.

And he had no interest in being demoted. Despite showing no reason why he shouldn't be.

Let the waiver war commence for Toleffson

Steve Eminger is better than Tollefsen. And THAT is saying something.

Neither can play defense. So I'll take the guy who adds some toughness, because the Ducks defense has no balls.

Nah, I'd still put OKT ahead of Eminger. If not for the contract than anything.

McKenzie (Twitter) confirmed it was a cap move.

Wings put OKT on waivers to open up roster spot for Johan Franzen coming back from injury. Leino, if waived, would have been claimed.

god forbid the Wings allow someone with some balls on their roster

Would play OKT over Eminger or Festerling, hopefully the Ducks take a chance

Bruins? Boychuk just left the game after taking a puck in the face. We also have Stuart out and McQuaid is up playing. He's been good, but we might have to call up the Woz soon...

Who does OKT unseat from Detroit's roster? He makes Brett Lebda look like Paul Coffey. Balls or not, OKT is not an NHL caliber d-man, even on a 3rd pairing.

I was hoping the Avs would sign Tollefsen in the offseason. Given our logjam on D, I doubt they'd claim him now, but I wouldn't mind it. If Tom freakin Preissing got ice time with the Avs, Tollefsen can.

Bad timing for Detroit. They lost three forwards to injuries today, so they have more room now.

But they still got rid of the pile of fail known as Ville Leino, and got a 5th rounder to boot.

That's a +2!

As for the forwards, The Wings still can always go with:

Abdelkader/Datsyuk/Bertuzzi
Franzen/Zetterberg/Cleary
Helm/Filppula/Meech
May/Draper/Maltby
