Curtis Sanford on Waivers

The Vancouver Canucks have placed goaltender Curtis Sanford on waivers.

With Luongo ready to return tomorrow, someone was going to have to go and the Canucks decided on Sanford. Really it wasn't much of a decision. Sanford had over a month to take the reigns and he failed to gain any confidence with the coaching staff, players or fans. While LaBarbera struggled in his final two games he still managed to put up 4 games that were as good or better than any 4 games Sanford started.

Should Sanford clear he will likely be sent to Manitoba with the Canucks exploring trade options to find him a job somewhere (he may even have to settle for a starting job in the minors).


Curtis Sanford has cleared waivers and has been assigned to the Manitoba Moose.
