Biron & Asham Placed on Waivers (Update: Talbot To Be Recalled)

Update, 1:20 p.m.:

…the Rangers already have Talbot under contract so he will not count towards 50 contract maximum under the CBA. Could be why Rangers went with him over Hedberg.

Original Post:

…the most surprising thing about this move is that Dorsett wasn't placed on waivers as well.

…i wonder what the plan is for the backup goaltender now (Assuming Biron isn't going to be on the roster whether he's claimed or clears). Bring Hedberg back or recall Talbot. My decision would be Talbot. Although, there's a bit of a risk bringing in an unproven commodity.

…and you all know I'm rooting for Asham, who cleared waivers in July, to be claimed as it likely means a Mashinter recall!

NHL teams have 24-hours to claim either player, who were both on the ice practicing with the rest of the team this morning.

If not claimed, Biron's cap hit in the AHL will be $375K, while Asham's will be $75K.
