That's right folks, on November 12th the Seth Griffith ERA was DONE in Toronto (s/o to the SDP). The Leafs chose to waive him due to the return to health of Matt Hunwick and the recall of Nikita Soshnikov. This created an overstocked roster.

And there is merit to that when it comes to the future of the organization, no doubt. It would be surprising if Griffith was going to be a Leaf for long, with so many young forwards on his heels.
