For those looking on a daily basis at the waiver wire waiting to see Dustin Byfuglien’s name it continues to be a waiting game. Tonight Frank Seravalli of TSN is reporting that it is because the hockey club wants to see if it can turn 33 into an asset. Seravalli had this to say:
Turns out, the Winnipeg Jets have waited to pull the trigger on a mutual contract termination with Dustin Byfuglien because multiple sources say the Jets are attempting to exhaust all trade options for the hulking defenceman.

This is certainly an interesting development but it is hard to see the Jets getting something at this point for Byfuglien simply because he isn’t likely to be a player this season according to reports.
