Schneider has cleared waivers, meaning all 29 teams passed on taking him off the Ducks' hands. So officially he's now on the roster of the Duck's AHL affiliate, and he'd have to clear waivers once again in order to go back on the big club's roster. Eklund claims that he's being told somebody will pick him up next time through. Not sure why a team would pass on him this time and make plans to snatch him up in the future.
The Flames have placed Marcus Nilson on waivers now, but I'd expect him to clear as well. While I like the guy, he's not going to be a difference maker on anybody's roster. He hasn't played a full season since 03-04 when he actually played in 83 regular season games by virtue of being traded from the Panthers to the Flames mid-season and playing in every game for each club while on their roster. In the past three years seasons Nilson has managed only 37 points over 180 games in between stints on the IR with knee, hip, and concussion issues. In his defense, he has also been a +22 over those three seasons while playing on the bottom two lines in Calgary. Not a bad stat at all. He works hard, and is kind of like Brad Larsen-light.
All in all, I wouldn't expect to see him wearing a new jersey at the end of the day. Maybe the Flames are making room on their roster to make room for a blockbuster trade that will put Iginla on a line with the Czar in Atlanta.
