We're really looking forward to seeing the names that will be placed on waivers in the next few days, and as the renowned Darren Dreger mentioned, there will be some surprising names.

Why is the NHL waivers so interesting this year?
First of all, because there could be some very interesting names that will end up there, and also, because the Montreal Canadiens have the priority.
PRIORITY TO THE CH
Kent Hughes as well as Jeff Gorton have made it very clear all summer that they will not hesitate to use this advantage to acquire a player, ideally a right-handed defenseman. (if the right name comes up)
Today is finally the very first day of the waivers wire and already, 13 players have been placed on waivers by their respective teams.
First of all, the Colorado Avalanche placed the names of Brad Hunt and Spencer Smallman.
Hunt is a 34-year-old left-handed defenseman with 17 points in 49 games last season with the Vancouver Canucks. He earns the NHL minimum wage until 2024.
Also placed on waivers today:
- Richard Panik, by the New York Islanders
- Michael Carcone, by the Arizona Coyotes
- Jean-Sebastien Dea, by the Arizona Coyotes
