Updated, 12:45 p.m.:

Defenseman Roman Hamrlik’s Capitals tenure has come to an end, with the New York Rangers claiming the veteran off waivers Wednesday.

The 38-year-old Hamrlik had been a healthy scratch in 17 of the Capitals’ 21 games this season, the last in a two-year, $7 million contract. After Washington placed him on waivers Tuesday, other teams had until noon Wednesday to claim him and take on the remainder of his salary.

The media reported that NYR had decided to claim him before last nights game.

 

But I would think Staal would be out at least a week to get the swelling down, and see if it did cause any further ( Broken something / concision / nerve damage )

Because that didn't happen to White 6 years ago and he didn't just retire having made another $16M with two teams over the 5 years preceding his retirement?

 

White wasn't the same after that, but he had some solid years after he adjusted to the eye.
