Several players have been claimed off waivers by the noon deadline – and two interesting names have not.
Phoenix – the Coyotes have claimed Niko Kapanen off waivers from Atlanta.
Philadelphia – the Flyers have claimed Denis Hamel off waivers from Atlanta.
Montreal – claimed Michael Leighton from the Flyers.
Columbus – claimed Brian Boucher from the Blackhawks.
Atlanta – claimed Jason Krog off of waivers.
Bryan Berard and Petr Cajanek cleared waivers.
Essentially, all this means that Atlanta cleared cap space from the Kapanen move, but none of the moves will have any fantasy impact. Berard and Cajanek can only be moved now if some salary is taken back in return.
