Andreychuk Waived- This Time It Is True

WDAE reporting Andreychuk will be waived at noon today. update 11:55am, via WDAE,
The Tampa Bay Lightning have waived team captain Dave Andreychuk. At a press conference held at the St. Pete Times Forum Tuesday, the team announced they have placed Andreychuk on waivers at noon Tuesday. If Andreychuk clears waivers, he will be assigned to the AHL Springfield Falcons. Andreychuk can then, if he wishes, retire and claim the money owed to him in his contract. Andreychuk signed a two-year deal with the Lightning prior to the 2005-06 season.
update 12:17pm, from the Tampa Bay Lightning,
“When we entered into the contract with David this summer, both sides did so in good faith, recognizing that no one would work harder in the summer preparing for the new season than David,” Lightning Executive Vice President & General Manager Jay Feaster said.
update 1:44pm, from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,
The NHL says goodbye to Dave Andreychuk today. No team could possibly find a reason to claim him on waivers. Let's choose to remember his playing career with the image of him jumping up and down with the Stanley Cup over his head and not the struggling anachronism we saw through the first half of this season.
