Week Seventeen Waiver Draft (Jan 31)

Can you already believe that it's the end of January already?  Well, we've made a little more progress in the Waiver Draft yesterday, so let's have a peek at what we've seen so far.

Mike is still lovin' those Oilers and he'll be living and dying by the team up north.  He dropped top prospect forward Jesse Puljujarvi, who is now spending time in the minors and he took veteran forward Mark Letestu to take his place.

For Wes' team, it was scoring on the menu and he opted to try and improve with Sven Baertschi of the Canucks, who has been relatively good this season.

Arguably, the goaltending side of Clayton's team was absolutely rubbish, so it took until the second Waiver Draft to try and sort that out, but he opted to take the now-healthy Michal Neuvirth in Philadelphia.

The last pick of the day came late, as Grant made his first Waiver Draft selection of the year, taking Anthony Mantha of the Red Wings, just trying to get a little bit higher in the overall standings, maybe see his team head back up to the top half before the end of the season.

So, now we'll wait for Marcin to make his first move and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can have the first two rounds done by Friday night.  Plans this weekend will likely take me away from the computer on Saturday/Sunday.
