Why was this unpinned?
Because he sucks.......
Just to make room for the TDL
It'll be back up after
Don't waivers kinda stop after the TDL?
Can still go! But players who change rosters after TDL (trade or waivers) are not eligible for the playoffs
70.3 M for the top 23 player sent through waiver this year
I'm assuming assignment waivers and not unconditional?
Probably normal waivers, both players look like they exceeded their callup windows since they last cleared.
They can’t play for another team if claimed, so no reason to expect anyone would submit a claim.
They can play in the regular season, right?
Plus, if the other team actually likes them, they will get them for free.
No, they can't play in the regular season if claimed. There's an old ByLaw that's still in effect which says players on a team's Reserve List at the trade deadline can't play for another team that season.
Good to know - for some reason I thought it was a playoff thing.
So, it's only the get for free - for the future- aspect here then. Still, that may be a reason to claim a player.
That's what I had thought until I did a little more research and reached out to some knowledgeable sources. The old ByLaw is definitely there, section 12.4. Note the remark on section 10.4 pertaining to waivers doesn't alter anything--it's the same trade deadline date.
"12.4 A player transferred from the Reserve List to the equivalent list of another Member Club following 3:00 o'clock PM Eastern Time of the 26th** day preceding the date of the final game in the League Schedule of Championship Games in any season, shall not be eligible to play for the transferee club during the remainder of that playing season. For Purposes of this By-Law section, the time of a player transfer shall be deemed to be the time when one of the two clubs involved in a transfer first gives FAX or telephone notice thereof to the League office in Montreal. This rule shall also apply to players acquired on waivers after the final date established for loaning a player to a Club in another league under Section 10.4"
** The trade deadline was changed from 26 days out to 40 days out in later agreements.
Aren't rosters frozen?
He clears waivers, and the QO is a two-way contract? Would it be a one-way contract without this? Also would make an arb a bit less fun for him.
Seems a strange time to waive someone. Is this just to get him on an AHL roster for when play resumes?
Most likely yes. Sneak him down to the AHL now, so he can help them in their playoff run (if things get back to normal).
That's only from the Reserve List though, so you can't stock up on Euro players after their season is done.
Avtive roster players can play for their new club if traded post-deadline. Just not in the playoffs.
The term "Reserve List", while it sounds like only players on reserve and not on the main roster, includes unsigned draft choices, unsigned RFAs, signed players on loan to juniors/minors/Europe, and signed players on the active roster/IR.
To repeat what Uncleben said: the Reserve List includes players under contract. From the CBA definitions:
"Reserve List" means the list of all Players to whom a Club has rights including all Unsigned Draft Choices, all Players signed to an SPC (whether or not currently playing in the NHL), and all Players who have signed an SPC but who have subsequently been returned to Juniors. A Club may have on its Reserve List, at any one time, not more than 90 Players, which shall include the following:
(a) Not more than 50 Players signed to an SPC and not less than 24 Players and 3 goalkeepers under an SPC. Age 18 and age 19 Players who were returned to Juniors, and who have not played 11 NHL Games in one season, shall be exempt from inclusion in the 50 Player limit. Any Club violating this provision shall be liable to loss of draft choices as determined by the Commissioner.
(b) Unsigned Draft Choices.
Was just compiling his AHL stats the other day and was struck by how few points he had
