The NHL buyout period seems to be heating up.
Three more players have been placed on waivers Monday for the purpose of being bought out if they clear waivers tomorrow at noon, The Washington Capitals Ben Clymer and Carolina Hurricanes’ Jeff Hamilton and David Tanabe.
from the News & Observer,
The Carolina Hurricanes don’t expect defenseman David Tanabe, who has been out since December with a concussion, to play again this NHL season. Whether he ever plays for them again is very much in doubt.
Tanabe hasn’t been on the ice for two months and wasn’t even at the RBC Center for the team picture last week. The Canes may even be forced to consider buying out the final year of his contract this summer.
