Yeah, the Fehr waiving basically covers the cost of Polak.

They had room under the cap (LTIR room) to carry both.

However, they don't have roster space for all of Polak, Rosen, and Fehr.  Expect to see Rosen back up after Fehr gets claimed or assigned to the Marlies.

I wonder if Fehr becomes more attractive to other teams after clearing waivers ala Pickard.

He's still insurance in case Moore gets hurt.

Yeah, I would think the Leafs would value him being in the minors and ready for an injury call-up rather than the 6th round pick they'd get in return

Yeah, you could well be right, just speculating as to all the possible outcomes.

The only reason the Leafs may want to move Fehr out is if they have another move brewing:

Fehr will still account for 975k of cap space while in the minors.  Right now they sit at $5.45 million available under LTIR, prior to demoting Fehr and calling up Calle (as expected).  After those moves, they will be at $5.55 million available.  If Fehr were to be traded or claimed, the cap space would grow to $6.525 million.

Just sayin'....

I'm pretty sure Karlsson is going to make more than 6.525 in his next deal.  I'm also pretty sure the Sens are moving him at any point over this season.  If they aren't moving Turris, they aren't moving Karlsson.

They still have Aaltonen (who looked like he was about to steal the 4C spot until the last second), Gauthier (who looked like he was going to be the teams future 4C), and Ben Smith (*sigh*) with the Marlies. I don't think any teams needs FOUR back-up 4th line centres.

It was a joke.  Of course they aren't moving him.  But, since you took it seriously.... I'll take him at 12.5M on his next contract and he could still be added to this years team if there was ever a chance in hell that would happen.

Or just to free up as much cap space as possible through moving players who they don't expect to contribute to the roster . . .

Fehr cleared waivers, for those of you holding your breath.

There was nothing to Fehr but Fehr itself.

He's cleared, but hasn't been assigned to the Marlies as far as I can tell from the transaction logs.

The news won't all burst forth at once. You have to let it release in slow drips so that we have several things to talk about. Fehr clearing waivers and being assigned to the Marlies in one post? Heads would explode. Servers would crash. Enjoy the anticipation.

It's curious because Fehr did not need to be waived to make room for Polak (wouldn't have been in time for the game against LA either), as Rosen's loan sufficed.

I know the reason he made the opening night roster was primarily for his cap hit to juice the LTIR (same with Marincin) and getting him a game in front of his 'hometown'.

And now I'm being confronted by my own mortality because I'm a few months older than Fehr and he looks a decade older than his birthdate suggests. Like, nearly as old as Ekblad.
