Nashville Roster Moves: Stålberg Saga Continues

The Nashville Predators have announced this afternoon that Viktor Stålberg has been assigned to the Milwaukee Admirals and that Derek Roy has been placed on waivers.

This move for Stålberg comes just over a week after he was placed on waivers, cleared waivers, assigned to the Admirals, and recalled due to Paul Gaustad being placed on injured reserved. Quite the whirlwind. At least for now this roster move looks more cut and dry.

As for Roy, the veteran forward was placed on waivers and now will have to wait through the twenty-four hour process to see if he gets claimed. Should no one claim him he could find himself en route to the Admirals roster as well. Considering how attractive his contract is compared to the likes of Stålberg – I have a hard time believing a team wouldn’t try and snap up Roy.

Thoughts? What will the addition of Viktor Stålberg do for the Milwaukee Admirals? Who will be assigned to the Cincinnati Cyclones as a result? And do you feel we could end up seeing Derek Roy also joining Stålberg in Milwaukee?

  1. Nashville needs to clear vets so Admirals can get some looks up in Smashville. Looks like Roy was ” low hanging fruit “. With the new head coach in Nashville, looks like he likes Veterans more than grow from below
