Tampa Bay Lightning

Waiving goodbye

From TSN:

The Tampa Bay Lightning have place goaltender Marc Denis on waivers for the purpose of buying him out. Should he clear waivers on Wednesday, he will be bought out at that time.

Here is the entire report.

Also from TSN:

The Toronto Maple Leafs took another step toward rebuilding on Tuesday, placing
Kyle Wellwood and goaltender Andrew Raycroft on waivers.

Here is the report.

As I said yesterday, putting Wellwood on waivers doesn’t make a ton of sense to me. Raycroft’s time in Toronto had run out, as the team has Vesa Toskala entrenched as their number one netminder and Justin Pogge on the cusp of making the NHL.

As for Denis, he didn’t perform even close to expectations throughout his tenure in Tampa and his placement on waivers is not surprising at all.
