Minnesota Wild at the Deadline: Brad Staubitz on Re-Entry Waivers

From Bob McKenzie on Twitter:

Wolski not on waivers. But these guys are: Ryan Russell and Clitsome (CBJ), Boulton (NJD), Staubitz (MIN), Kolanos (CGY). Staubitz re-entry.

This is an interesting move with Staubitz. With the moves to bring in three NHL players yesterday, there is no room on the roster for Staubitz without sending someone else down. Unless Mike Yeo and Chuck Fletcher suddenly think Staubitz is a better option than Jed Ortmeyer and Warren Peters, this may suggest Staubitz being moved.

We hate to use the Jump to Conclusions mat, but with the deadline there, and Fletcher having tried to find Staubitz a home before, maybe now is the time. If Staubitz clears waivers, he can be brought up by a new team, same as he could with the Wild. Perhaps a team wants to add some grit at the deadline?

Maybe Chuck Fletcher gets revenge for Wild fans and the Chris Simon for a 6th round pick debacle.

Or... maybe Fletcher is taking this step just in case someone comes calling. The waiting game begins.
