The Edmonton Oilers have placed defenseman Sheldon Souray and goalie Martin Gerber on waivers. Brochu's take: Souray being put on waivers was expected, but Gerber has been playing well in the pre-season. The likelihood of Souray being picked up is low because of his high salary.
Brochu's European rumor roundup:
Forward Slava Kozlov has left the NHL and signed a one-year deal with KHL team CSKA Moscow.
Free agent forward Miroslav Satan is still looking to sign with an NHL team. Satan recently played two games for Slovakian club HC Slovan Bratislava.
