The Ottawa Senators have put former Canisius College star Cory Conacher on waivers and have reportedly done likewise with veteran defenseman Joe Corvo.
The Sabres have already made waiver claims this year for the likes of Matt D’Agostini and Zenon Konopka and essentially took a flyer on Linus Omark, trying him for a conditional draft pick that was not sent to Edmonton because Omark didn’t play 15 games with Buffalo.
GM Tim Murray, of course, came from Ottawa so he would have full knowledge on Conacher. It would seem to make sense for the Sabres to put in the claim.
Throw out the fact that Conacher starred in college, becoming Canisus’ all-time leader in goals and points. His 20 points with Ottawa would make him the Sabres’ sixth-leading scorer. And his cap hit is just $871,250.
