Columbus Blue Jackets
Detroit Red Wings
Keith Yandle – Wasn’t asked to waive.
Los Angeles Kings
Jason Pomminville – No confirmation as to whether he was asked to waive from either side.
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Marc Staal – Wasn’t asked to waive.
Dan Girardi – Wasn’t asked to waive.
Dion Phaneuf – Not expected to waive.
Marc-Andre Fleury – Accepted to waive.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Ryan Callahan – Wasn’t asked to waive.
Also, an important reminder…
As always: A player’s NMC was freely agreed to by his team. He is under no obligation to waive and shouldn’t be condemned for not doing so.
