Yesterday, despite the Jets being off, there was some buzz as it was reported that Riley Nash had been placed on waivers by Winnipeg which would free up some cap space for a defenceman to be recalled with the news that Neal Pionk had been suspended for two games. Additionally we found out today that Pionk is in concussion protocol after the hit he took from Spezza which followed his hit on Sandin.

The move gives Winnipeg about a million dollars in cap space to make that recall.
