Curtis Joseph was put on waivers yesterday by the Detroit Red Wings, who have tried for months to find a new home for the veteran goaltender. If a team claims Joseph by noon tomorrow, it will assume the remaining portion of his 2-year, $16 million contract.

If Scotty Bowman returns to coach the Detroit Red Wings, he isn't expected to be back for the start of the regular season, general manager Ken Holland told Bloomberg News. Bowman, who underwent an angioplasty to clear a blocked coronary artery July 16, will have another physical some time in the next two weeks, Holland said. If he is given clearance, Bowman will then have his arthritic left knee replaced by an artificial joint. Because of recovery time from the knee surgery, Holland expects Bowman to miss all of training camp and possibly the entire first month of the season, which begins Oct. 9. Under Bowman, 64, the Red Wings have won back-to-back Stanley Cups.
