Neal Livingston at Tend The Farm reports that Yann Danis has cleared waivers and is likely to draw in as starter tonight in Charlotte:
Yes, I’m an OKC Barons fan who has thought highly of Yann Danis the last 1.5 seasons. And, yes, I was fearful someone, somewhere would feel the same. Boy am I glad I was wrong. Danis clears waivers today...
Neal was more than a little worried about losing Danis to a team looking for goaltending help:
You know what’ll happen. Yann gets claimed by the Bluejackets. Eats Tommy’s Pizza. Has soul crushed. Learns "Carmen Ohio". Never seen again.— Neal (@tweetneal) January 29, 2013
And Neal celebrated when Danis was "coming home":
Meanwhile, the Nikolai Khabibulin watch begins. Khabibulin will likely draw in tonight as the starter against the undefeated San Jose Sharks.
