Hagman goes on waivers.
Flames place forward Niklas Hagman on waivers for a demotion to the Heat if he is not claimed. This comes as to no real surprise with Backlund being ready to return. Hagman has been a healthy scratch this year and has not done much when he has played.
Feaster is clearly showing that young guys can remain on the team if they play the way they are supposed to. Horak is that example and I am glad he is staying put; some nights he has been the Flames best forward.
As for Hagman, he is a hard working guy but it just has not worked in Calgary. I doubt someone places a claim but you never know. Feaster will now have even more cap to play with but doubt he will use it.
Expect Backlund to be a game time decision on Friday in Chicago.
