Yesterday, we reported that the Red Wings have placed forward Filip Zadina on waivers in order to buy out his contract.

This information from Elliotte Friedman has just been confirmed by Frank Seravalli. This is a golden opportunity for Kent Hughes and the Habs to acquire the youngster for free, at a reasonable price.
But what's the surprise? It seems that Zadina has waived the 4.56 million remaining on his current contract with the Wings, and that both parties will terminate the contract by mutual agreement.
A lot of courage on the young man's part, as Frank Seravalli mentions.
"I'm told the Red Wings will place Filip Zadina on the NHL's unconditional waivers at noon today for mutual contract termination.

Zadina forfeits the remaining $4.56 million on his contract, seeking a fresh start elsewhere. Immense courage to bet on himself."

- Frank Seravalli

Not only does the forward have confidence in his abilities, he knows full well that he'll have to redouble his efforts to earn himself a lucrative NHL contract one day.
We think Kent Hughes should try another Kirby Dach move with Zadina.
