One day after he was waived following not a single point in 16 games, Blake Comeau was claimed off of waivers by the Calgary Flames.
AT: I believe this is the best for all parties. Blake had a good season last year but was just not doing much this year and clearly needed a change of scenery. Calgary isn't exactly a good team so it's hard to see him putting up much more than he did last year playing with the Flames, but he was simply not working for the Islanders anymore, and certainly not worth $2.5M with his play.
This should, by logic, pave the way for Niederreiter to take his place on the 3rd line, but supposedly Niederreiter and Reasoner are the scratches today against the Devils, which makes very little sense at all. You have a 19 year old power forward just itching to play, and you continue to scratch him in favor of Brian Rolston who has easily been one of the most inefficient players for the Islanders all year long.
