Irbe Clears Waivers and sent to Minors!!!
Arturs Irbe has cleared waivers and will be sent to the Lowel Lock Monsters of the AHL after tonites game in Dallas!!! Here is the source:
This article states that the Canes are going to continue to try to trade Irbe before the March 11th trade deadline, Jason Karamanos also stated that Irbe will not be a part of the Hurricanes future.
Will Irbe even report to Lowel? And if he does, will he end up like Jim Carey did in Providence/ Boston. I do not know for sure, but Irbe certainly must have a one way deal with the Canes.
If Irbe is traded before the deadline, would any of the teams that could be interested in him also have potential interest in either Wesley, Ward or Hill, all of whom are rumored to be available? As we saw with Pittsburgh, teams trying to dump salery might be more likely to send alot of guys off at once. This last part is purely speculation on my part of coarse.
