from the CP at CBC,
Since every other NHL team had a chance to sign Wellwood and Svatos when the Blues did, was it a faux pas for the Sharks and Predators to then claim them off waivers?
“I think you’re probably better to ask other GMs that right now than me,” said Armstrong. “It’s somewhat frustrating — these other teams have had an opportunity to go do the work and they deemed it not necessary to go out.
“They’ve taken advantage of the situation that’s given them.”
Armstrong says he didn’t receive a call from Sharks GM Doug Wilson before Wellwood was claimed. He did hear from Predators GM David Poile before Svatos was grabbed.
