Waiver wire watching

Since none of the players in camp vying for the last forward spot have really made a case for themselves yet (Colin Stuart, Jordan LaVallee, Darren Haydar, and Bryan Little), don't be shocked if that spot is filled via the waiver wire. The next week and a half will see teams making tough choices among players, and a player could be a late cut from another team who would fill the role the Thrashers are looking for. Every year there are some players who become available who are quite worthwhile (Chris Kunitz a good, if painful, example), and since the Thrashers are under the 50-man contract limit, they have room to pick someone up.
