Ducks Dennis Rasmussen on unconditional waivers.
McKenzie: Rasmussen’s first preference is to remain in NHL and, if claimed on waivers, he’d be happy to go to whomever claims him. But he would rather go home to SWE than play in AHL. Because a transfer window to SWE closes prior to NHL trade deadline, now may be good time for him to go.
Big dude 27 years old, doesn't play with any grit, responsible two-way type, Chicago and now Anaheim both gave up on him, he's probably going back to Sweden, ironically to our young homie's team Vaxjo probably.

Habs trade Plekanec to Leaves for Rychel, Valiev and a 2nd round pick.
Sportsnet’s Eric Engels says that Montreal had a deal in place to send Plekanec to the Winnipeg Jets, but that general manager Marc Bergevin worked to keep Plekanec in the Eastern Conference, which the player preferred.

There is no no-trade protection in Plekanec’s contract.

TVA’s Renaud Lavoie is reporting that the Canadiens will retain 50 per cent of Plekanec’s $6 million salary, which pro-rates to almost a $1.3-million cap hit as of Sunday.
Rumour is Plekanec may return to Montreal this summer.

Shit I'd take 6'2 239lbs Chris Stewart whose on waivers.

1.15m cap.

""Owns tremendous size and strength, and is at his best when working the corners of the ice. Is physical and can play with a warrior's mentality. Is fast for his size and has what it takes to score goals, including a bullet for a shot.""

From SN:

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes say the infant daughter of team co-captain Jordan Staal has died.

Team spokesman Mike Sundheim said Sunday that Staal told him his daughter Hannah died Saturday.

Staal missed the team’s two games this weekend because of family and personal reasons.

A statement issued by the team requested privacy for the family.

RIP little one. Condolences to Staal and family.

Read yesterday that the final straw for Karlson in Ottawa was Melynk complying that he never paid the team back for an Uber ride.

Apparently there was a big melee in the dressing room . Next thing you know Burrows and Oduya are on waivers.

Absolutely no to bringing back the biter. He looked done in the second round of last years playoffs.
