Just got word on Twitter from Adrian Dater @adater that Kyle Cumiskey was put on Waivers. Meaning that any team in the rest of the NHL could claim him to play for their team.. If no one does, Cumiskey will be sent down to the Lake Erie Monsters.
So the question is. Are their any teams out there that maybe tried to aquire Cumiskey over the summer and failed, that are looking to jump on claiming him? Well thats something we wont know unless we are part of the Avs Management.
Cumiskey is a Speedy Defenseman who while he had great speed, could never use it in the right ways with the Avs, and usually it would end up causing an odd man rush the other way were we would be racing to get back in position or even cause something else to happen where he would get injured. Since Cumiskey has been on the team, to me, this is the best thing i have seen him do.

Although i would rather see Matt Hunwick put on Waivers, (and claimed). it shows that the Avs management realizes what hasnt been working over the last few years on the Blueline.
Since 06’07 season, Cumiskey has played 132 NHL games, scoring 9 Goals and getting 26 assists and is a -8 rating. Also playing 6 playoff games with 1 goal and 1 assist there.
It will be interesting to see if a team claims him over the day.
What do you think? Who could Claim him? Let me know on Twitter @mercus24
Thanks for reading.
