There are several interesting defensemen on waivers this afternoon. Among them are Matt Lashoff (TOR) and Logan Pyett (DET). Ryan Whitney skated today, perhaps a good sign although we'll have to wait and see how he feels tomorrow. The club is off to Jasper for team building, with Andy Sutton off to his house to spend some time with the newest addition to the family. I think a good way to look at all of these waiver blue is this: does said player have more potential to help the Oilers win games than Taylor Chorney? With that as the line in the sand, it'll be interesting to see if the club sees anyone on the waiver wire worth claiming.
