Rissmiller Clears Waivers

Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that Patrick Rissmiller cleared waivers today but that the Rangers have not assigned him to Hartford yet.

There's been a lot of confusion on Rissmiller's contract in the last day, but Gross has confirmed that it's a 3-year, $1 million per year contract. Which is probably why no one claimed him. Financially this has not turned out to be a smart move by Sather.

If the Rangers try to recall Rissmiller and he is claimed by another team the Rangers will be on the hook for half of Rissmiller's salary.
