According to Leafs Lunch, Tampa Bay has waived Dave Andreychuk. update 1:08pm, via Sportsnet,
One day after the New Jersey Devils raised eyebrows throughout the hockey community by placing veteran forward Alexander Mogilny on waivers, word has leaked out of Tampa Bay that the Lightning are trying to unload Dave Andreychuk. Sources tell Sportsnet Lightning general manager Jay Feaster sent a fax earlier this week to the 29 other NHL teams announcing the 42-year-old future Hall of Famer is available.update 2:02pm, I made a call to Leafs Lunch asking them if they are still reporting Andreychuk is on waivers, since I have not heard it on their updates for the last 45 minutes. They hung up on me!!! Now, Sportsnet and Leafs Lunch work hand in hand, somewhere along the line someone may have messed up. As I stated in the comments of this post, Tampa may be offering Andreychuk around the league, but actually placing him on waivers is another thing. Leafs Lunch should have clarified their remarks instead of being silent about it. update 3:22pm, via TSN,
Tampa Bay forward Dave Andreychuk has not been waived by the Lightning, contrary to a radio report out of Toronto, but the veteran is being shopped to other teams by GM Jay Feaster.
