Gerber, Morrison claimed on waivers

The waiver deadline was at noon today and four players have been claimed:

  • Toronto claimed Martin Gerber and Erik Reitz
  • Dallas claimed Brendan Morrison
  • Pittsburgh claimed Craig Adams

Everyone else on this list has cleared waivers. No one took Miroslav Satan or Gary Roberts.

Everyone's down on Gerber at the moment, but his numbers have been better than Vesa Toskala's and he gives the Leafs a chance to allow Justin Pogge to keep playing in the AHL.

The Stars, meanwhile, need someone to fill in at centre while Brad Richards recovers from a broken wrist, and Morrison fits the bill. He's really struggled coming off of major knee surgery in the summer, however.

UPDATE The Maple Leafs have announced that Vesa Toskala's season is over as he will undergo hip surgery in the near future. Gerber is sure to get lots of starts.
