Stephen Weiss on his way?

Rate this topic

122 posts in this topic

I haven't been able to find the rule, but are the Wings able to buy him out (non-compliance) during the regular season? That is, can he start the years on LTIR and be bought out if healthy?

I'm personally hoping that the organization hires somebody to bludgeon him in the ankle today. That way he can be on LTIR all season and not count against the cap.

Compliance buyouts can only happen I believe starting 48 hours after the SC Finals are over & the start of UFA season. That said, the Wings can still buy Sammy out during the season but it would be a regular buyout meaning he would still count against the salary cap.

Can they put Sammy on waivers and transfer him to the Griffins afterwards ? Then his salary wouldn't count against the cap right ?

What are the requirements for a LTIR listing? Can they use his chronic pectoral strain?

Nope - cap counts

I believe the new CBA eliminates that circumvention on 35+ contracts.

Holland tried. Samuelsson blocked it with an injury claim.

According to what source?? From everything I've read that's a complete fabrication and was never attempted....

I know the compliance issue, but I wasn't sure if there are non-injury restrictions on normal buyouts during the regular season.

Stephen Weiss is a VERY good second line centre. I live in Toronto, and believe me there is no comparison between him and Grabovski. In Detroit, Weiss could easily put up 60+ points playing with the likes of Zetterberg, Franzen or Alfredsson.

I would rather have him over anyone left on the market.

And Dave Hodge from TSN the reporters just said Weiss is a Red Wing...

Brunner, over a guy that is a proven 50 pt commodity on a s***ty Florida team?

Man the rose colored glasses are strong with this one.

Does no one remember what happened with Brunnstum?

He's from Toronto, so I think he would love to play close to his hometown. I'd love him here as our 2nd line center, very versatile player.
