He was a high percentage face off center man.... Perhaps a good pick up to replace manny? Currently scratched... Maybe he'll be waived?

I thought the OP was suggesting to pick him up if he got waived?

If he gets waived sure, although I wouldn't give up anything more than a 6th or 7th for him myself.

A 7th sounds good, but a 6th is probably what it'll take.

Apparently the Leafs feel McClement is a better fourth line option despite the fact he's only been over 50% in the faceoff circle 3 of 17 games this season... Perhaps Carlyle wants more punch on his fourth line.
Steckel has only seen about a half a game's worth of ice time this year but I like him as a role/depth addition - about as close to a Manny replacement as we could hope for (and the price would probably be right) - assuming the Canucks want to continue to go with the almost exclusively shutdown, defensive zone start, fourth line model...
