On the last day before teams have to become roster compliant the Red Wings made some moves to make that happen. With roster compliance due tomorrow today is the last day for teams who have guys with waiver eligibility to place them on waivers if they're going to make a move to eliminate them from the roster by the deadline. For a reminder on the process any team may make a claim to take Cory Emmerton's entire contract off the Wings' hands by noon tomorrow. If that happens Emmerton's entire cap hit comes off the Wings' book and he joins his new team on their roster. If Emmerton is not claimed the Wings retain him and his salary but would be able to assign him to the minor leagues and remove his name from their roster with the entirety of his $533K cap hit.
