Forensics Investigation Ordered by Harvey?


This morning GM Steve woke up to -20 outside and found out that Frederick Gaudreau was claimed off waivers at the last minute by the Washington Capitals. Now this wouldn’t seem out of the ordinary for teams to claim players off waivers but it does beg the question in this instance considering the Capitals have no leadership and GM.  Who is the mystery man hiding in the shadows that denied the Flames?

 Even an anonymous EHE GM was quoted as saying “Dammit all, what a pain in the ass.”  As a result of the waiver claim the Flames are left with trying to figure it out.

 Rumour has it the Flames had put Gaudreau on waivers to get him to the AHL in order to complete a trade that would have seen a depth player coming back. Now they are back to square one in looking for help to improve the roster. The upside to the Flames is that the waiver claim freed up a contract spot moving forward. So the Flames will keep a close eye to the waiver wire in the coming weeks.

 As for Gaudreau we would like to thank him for his commitment to the organization and wish him the best in Washington.
