No Buyout For Ethan

Well, Ethan Moreau's agent Pat Morris was mistaken. Ethan Moreau will not require a buyout which is great news for the Oilers as the Columbus Blue Jackets have claimed the veteran forward off of the waiver wire.

As TSN notes, Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson was the assistant general manager in Edmonton before landing his post and has brought several former Oilers to Ohio in recent seasons, including Raffi Torres, Jason Chimera, Michael Peca, Jan Hejda and Mathieu Roy.

I guess if there's a team out there who would know what Ethan Moreau is all about, then Scott Howson is that guy.

This is good news for the Oilers in terms of needing to dedicate cap space for Moreau's buyout. It wasn't much, but every little penny not required to be spent by the Oilers helps.
