Options In Play For Cam Barker

from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants,

Wild defenseman Cam Barker cleared waivers this morning and was not immediately placed back on unconditional waivers.

However, the Wild can still place him on unconditional waivers by 11 a.m. CT Thursday and the buyout process can be enacted within the rules of the 4 p.m. Thursday first buyout period deadline.

So, in other words, Barker could still be put on unconditional waivers Thursday and still be bought out as long as he clears Friday at 11 a.m.—even though the buyout deadline is the day before.


Also, after talking to a number of agents and NHL executives this morning, there are different strategies that could be in play here
