Breaking: Cup champion hits the waiver wire!

He has to get claimed, right? The veteran could DEFINITELY bolster another team’s powerplay.

According to a report from Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston, the Montreal Canadiens have placed veteran defenseman Mark Streit on waivers.

News broke yesterday that the Habs had been trying to trade 39-year-old veteran, but evidently Habs GM Marc Bergevin has not found any willing trade partners yet. With Streit hitting the waiver wire, he’s now open to any NHL team looking to add a defender.

While Streit had signed with the Habs in late July, the emergence of rookie Victor Mete has essentially made Streit an expendable asset. While Bergevin and head coach Claude Julien could elect to sit Streit in the press-box, it appears as though they’d like to give the Stanley Cup champion an opportunity to close out his career on the ice with another NHL team.

What are the chances he gets claimed?
