On Waivers: Jeff Hamilton
Word has it that the Carolina Hurricanes have placed winger Jeff Hamilton on waivers after a disappointing season. Once he clears waivers, Hamilton will become an unrestricted free agent (UFA) and will be paid a fraction of the $800 thousand he was slated to make in the last year of the 2 year deal he signed last summer with the 'Canes. Hamilton managed only 24 points (9 goals, 15 assists) on 58 injury/scratch-shortened games with Carolina. He was signed after a breakout 2006-07 season with the Chicago Blackhawks caught attention around the league. We will follow the bouncing Hamilton once Free Agency season begins July 1.
