Saturday's Moves and Signings

Well, the Stars were the only one's involved in a pool-related move, albeit a small one. Nolan Baumgartner (Box 22) was claimed off of re-entry waivers by Dallas to upgrade their depth going into the stretch run. Baumgartner hasn't been taken by anyone, but going to Dallas, may make him a little more attractive to Box 22 dud holders.

Neither Eric Brewer (Box 4) or Manny Legace (Box 6) were taken in the pool, so it really didn't make a difference to anyone that they won't be leaving St. Louis before Tuesday. Both players were signed to contract extensions on Saturday morning and will remain with the team for a while.

Marco Sturm (Box 13), taken once in the pool, probably won't be leaving Boston this weekend or by Tuesday, since he re-upped his contract with the Bruins on Saturday. The signing probably won't affect the pool much, except the Bruins may continue their hot streak of late and a guy like Marc Savard (Box 20) will continue to put in points.

Joffrey Lupul (Box 7) won't be immediately available to the Oilers and his pool teams after getting run over last night in Detroit. His CT scans came back negative, but he might still need a couple days to get the cobwebs out of this noggin'.
