Well, this is an interesting move to say the least.
From the Twitter feed of NHL writer and radio host Andy Strickland:
Dallas Stars place Goaltender Alex Auld on waivers.
I think a few things are in play, here. The Stars probably didn't see much of a market for Marty as we approach the trade deadline. And they probably feel a motivated Marty Turco down the stretch is better in net than a questionable Kari Lehtonen.
To clear up any confusion: the Stars have placed Auld on waivers with the thought he will get picked up by another team, who will then take on the rest of his salary. If he clears waivers, then he'll be placed on re-entry waivers where any team grabbing him is on the hook for just half of his remaining salary. If there are still no takers, then the Stars will assign him to the Texas Stars most likely.
Anyway, best wishes to Auld in his future endeavors. He did a solid job of backing up Marty this year.
