Contract limit must be less of a problem than has been assumed
Or maybe something else is in the deal yet to be announced?
Tweet rumors don’t qualify as “Confirmed with Link”
head scratcher...for sure! We need one of you pros out there that knows the ins & outs of the rules on this to provide some enlightenment.
We are at 50.
If we are trading for Weal with only a pick then a body has to go somewhere.
according to the NHL website concerning 50 contact limit: "...teams are only allowed to have up to 50 players signed to contracts for any given season, including those for the players on the active roster and injured reserve list. The unsigned players are draft picks of the club how have not yet been signed. Every player on the 23-person active NHL roster, plus any player on the injured reserve list, must be under contract (and count toward the 50 contract maximum) and every team must have at least 24 players and 3 goaltenders under an SPC. Beyond those parameters, a team has a wide latitude to make up its 50 contracts. In actuality, most teams opt not to use the full 50-contract maximum to give the organization the flexibility to make roster moves - trades, waiver claims, or player signings - at any given time."
Information on the 50-contract roster limit and 90-player maximum reserve list
I think that someone else ends up going to the Flyers (Dauphin shipped out again for example?)
But if not maybe there's some minor loophole we don't know about like how Hayton ended up on the roster because apparently 9 game tryouts don't count on the limit.
Can you apply for an exception on the limit, due to injuries?
This is weird. Only two of the guys on the IR-list are traded in to be there. Still, that's what people probably would point to, if you brought up the problem.
So, guys can play for the RR on minor-league contracts without counting against the limit? But then the point of the RR disappears, huh?
I have always felt the roster-limits are a bit low. Now, they are a disaster.
Trade someone in the A with an NHL-contract, but without real upside, for an AHL-er with that kind of limited minor-league contract? Is this maybe the plan? And who would do it.
Edit: Ah. Graves was included. Must admit I've never noticed the name... Big loss?
Now that’s “Confirmed with Link.”
Weal expires as a UFA btw so he's a pure hired gun unless he surprises for us I guess.
The Flyers-fans seems to be divided on the value of Weal. Yeah, it's another player I've never noticed, I admit... But a good think they are divided, then. At least some liked him.
I want one more.
that's great we were able to get rid of Graves. Playing in the ECHL with Smereck.
32gp 2g 5a 7pts
So it was great to rid ourselves of that contract.
Note the FO%....
Weal will wear #40.
I don't think you'll get it.
But if you do, I hope it's KConn going somewhere.
...and good on Chayka not to give up anything more than a 6th. I was afraid he would spend a 3rd or 4th to get someone like Weal.
If he got rid of a more or less dead contract, this seems like a great trade. Absolutely worth a 6th. I assume some of the IR are insured, so he was allowed to take a slightly more expensive player for a change.
Actually kind of like Weal. He was relatively decent last year and the start of this year. We gave up nothing, either.
One thing about the money, 500k of Weal's deal is bonus which I'm guessing is already paid out as it was a signing bonus.
So his $ cost is only to us as prorated 1.25m which would be about 600k.
I want Goligoski traded away. Keep KConn
OEL - Hammer (excellent since they got back together)
Chych - Bush
Oesterle - KConn
Someone can give up a relatively okay roster player for the rest of the year (or with term) for Goose.
He scored a goal against us last season when we got our first win of the season in Philly. He was also their first shooter in the shootout when we lost to them at home last Feb (didn't score). We could use help in the shootout, too.
I've always had that theory teams are much more willing to trade for players who has scored on them.
Face-off percentage, I can see I'm not the only one here to like that one. Above 50, well above, actually. That would be sweet.
per hockeydb, he would have been a teammate of Biznasty's in Manchester for a year.
Wait, 40? Is Grabner gone forever? Or has he given it up?
