The newspaper quotes sources who say the Panthers have placed Kidd on waivers. However, no team is expected to claim the 30-year-old, who carries with him a $2.3-million salary. Kidd went unclaimed by other NHL teams when he was placed on waivers back in March.
Once Kidd clears waivers next Tuesday, the Panthers are expected buy him out, making him free to sign with the Maple Leafs.
While Kidd did confirm that the Panthers had placed him on waivers, he was not aware of any deal involving the Maple Leafs.
Panthers general manager Rick Dudley said he expects Kidd to be with another team by next week.
“In all likelihood, something will happen and it won’t be a trade,” Dudley tells the Sun-Sentinel. “I do think Trevor will be moving on, and it’s at his request.”
As you can see by reading this he is on waivers and will clear waivers next Tuesday. This is when Florida will supposedly buy out his contract making him free to sign with toronto.
And to PANTHERBOY, Trevor Kidd has supposedly asked to be moved out of Florida….so maybe this can make sense to you.]]>
