It's a 2-way contract, but he is expected to play with them Sunday versus Columbus

Hmm.. I guess Dallas isn't serious about winning the cup afterall.

I am curious as to why he doesn't need to go through waivers before he can play.

Haven't been paying too much attention to the Stars other than what they do in the standings. Have they been hit by a lot of injuries lately? Why are they bringing JW in now? Just curious.

He didn't start the season in Europe and was only on a professional try out contract. He was a pure free agent.

He doesn't have to go through waivers because he's in a similar situation to Forsberg, to the best of my knowledge; he wasn't signed with any team, either in North America or overseas.

The reason that Nabokov had to go through waivers was because he was signed in the KHL at the start of this season.

Yeah, that was my first thought. I don't recall a member of the Wings ever being as invisible as he was last season.

Except for when he broke his leg. Then he was visible on the injury list.

Poor kid. I hope he is happy in Dallas.

I've a great mind for stats and details, and yet there were times when I forgot that he was even on the team.

Except when he fired that shot in Game 3 against the Sharks that missed the net and went right to Thorton, who then scored in OT to give the Sharks a series lead 3-0. <_<

Okay. So the Professional Try Out Contract with the Conneticut Whale doesn't count as playing in another league.

I buy that.

I just figured since he played for them it would count as playing somewhere this year.

If I understand correctly, the waiver rule only applies if a player plays professionally in a league outside of North America during the season in which they sign. Since Williams began the season not playing at all, then signed a pro tryout with an AHL team, he is not required to pass through waivers before joining an NHL team. Slightly different scenario from Forsberg, who last played professionally in Sweden but not this season, but fundamentally different from Nabakov, who was under contract and played in the KHL this season before being bought out in Russia and returning to the NHL.

Very much so. Other than their comeback win last night they have been doing terribly.

Good for Williams. As much as I thought he was a terrible player I hope he does well.

Finally they've found a right handed shot to replace what Zubov was on the powerplay.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
