Lightning claim Pettinger off waivers
That's the risk a GM takes putting a guy on waivers in the first place. Pettinger was placed on re-entry waivers as the Canucks have injury problems, as was Kyle Wellwood, and Tampa scooped up the depth forward. Maybe this was Gillis' plan all along since Pettinger cleared waivers a few days back. He wanted to get rid of him. Who knows for sure.
So what now? Is it time for Michel Ouellet to get a chance? The Canucks need another winger for tonight's game. Stay tuned.
Good luck in Tampa, Matt. Thanks for all your hard work here.
