Unless I am missing something the Canucks won't have to waive a player until Burrows is healthy - assuming nobody else gets hurt.
Speculation over on another board since Brad Ziemer (I think?) reported Dalpe was saying his goodbyes to his teammates, and that there is no indication he was waived today (deadline has passed) is that he'll be loaned to Utica on a conditioning stint. The league has the right to stop it if they feel it's being done to evade waivers though.

So, if Dalpe gets waived good on MG for realizing he is the player that should be waived and doing it. If he gets claimed then bad on MG for wasting a draft pick and trying for another reclamation project and not letting one of our own young players have a chance to play in the first 8 games.
Looks like Dalpe survived waivers lol, suppose this was a calculated 'risk' this season.
