Noon Player Notes in the Draft (Nov 23)
The numbers are not very good for Eddie Lack to start this season: a 1-2-0 record in four appearances, two starts, with a 5.29 GAA and an .813 save percentage. It's those numbers that have forced the hand of the Flames, placing him on waivers on Thanksgiving Thursday, with the intention of sending him down to the minors. The Flames open up the post-Thanksgiving schedule with back-to-back games, Friday in Dallas and Saturday in Colorado, so the goaltending situation does become quite interesting.
This quickly becomes a situation for Neil that will have to be rectified in the Waiver Draft, if he does actually head down to the minors. Neil has a lot of irons in the fire for next week, his team could really use all the help it can get right about now.
