Canes Put Stephane Yelle on Waivers

The Carolina Hurricanes placed Stephane Yelle on waivers this morning according to team sources.  Yelle was signed as a free agent over the offseason and was counted on to center the team's fourth line.  So far he has registered just a single assist this season and leads the team in minor penalties, for time spent on the ice. 

The move is a good sign for youngster Brandon Sutter, who had an excellent training camp but was assigned to Albany because the team did not have room for him.  We will have to see if another team claims Yelle off the wire and what happens from here.  The ex-Bruin has a salary of $550,000.

Is this a wake up call to the rest of the team?
