According to the Washington Times, F Chris Bourque was placed on waivers today at noon, with the expressed purpose of having a roster spot open to possibly claim another waived player.

GM George McPhee reportedly said that if there was no one on the waiver wire the team liked more than Bouque -- and he cleared wiavers -- he would remain with the team and open the season with him on the roster.

If Bourque is claimed, the Caps will lose him for nothing.

Bourque's long-term status with the organization is questionable anyway, since the Caps will have Eric Fehr and Tomas Fleischmann reutning from injury fairly soon.

Stay tuned as the drama unfolds.
