Its a two way contract, so we can send him down.

Two-way contract just means that a player gets paid less in the AHL. If they are waiver eligible, like Landon is, they still have to clear waivers to be sent to the AHL.

Where can you find out who is waiver eligible and who is exempt?

Used to be capgeek, Matt was always on top of that stuff. Now you kind of have to scour the web pick up bits and pieces from numerous sites and whatnot

Where can you find out who is waiver eligible and who is exempt?

For skaters, players are exempt for:

  • signed at 18: exempt for 5 years after signing or 160 NHL games
  • signed at 19: exempt for 4 years or 160 NHL games
  • signed at 20: exempt for 3 years or 160 NHL games
  • signed at 21: exempt for 3 years or 80 NHL games
  • signed at 22: exempt for 3 years or 70 NHL games
  • signed at 23: exempt for 3 years or 60 NHL games
  • signed at 24: exempt for 2 years or 60 NHL games
  • signed at 25 or older: exempt for 1 year regardless of games played

For goaltenders, players are exempt for:

  • signed at 18: exempt for 6 years after signing or 80 NHL games
  • signed at 19: exempt for 5 years or 160 NHL games
  • signed at 20: exempt for 4 years or 80 NHL games
  • signed at 21: exempt for 4 years or 80 NHL games
  • signed at 22: exempt for 4 years or 60 NHL games
  • signed at 23: exempt for 3 years or 60 NHL games
  • signed at 24: exempt for 2 years or 60 NHL games
  • signed at 25 or older: exempt for 1 year regardless of games played

You can use generalfanager.com to see when a player signed his first contract. In most cases, the first year of the first contract is also the first year of waiver exemption. There are some exceptions, but usually they only apply to kids who will be in the NHL before their exemption runs out anyway. (Ex: Larkin gets 5 years, but I'm not sure if last year counts as one. However, if he were to play 11 NHL games next year or the year after, it would reduce to 3 years, with that season counting as the first. But he'll most likely make the Wings in 1-3 years regardless so probably doesn't matter.)

"Lando" won me over in the playoffs. His skating alone makes him a valuable asset.

Yes, it’s taken him a very long time just to become a fourth-line winger (and even then, he's not guaranteed a spot on the roster), but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a fringe NHLer. Maybe he’s just a late bloomer.

Look at Glendening. He made his NHL debut at 24 years old. (Ferraro turns 24 next month.) This time last summer, he was 25. He’d scored one goal in 56 regular season games. Babcock loved him, but most Wings fans considered him an experiment that was doomed to fail. What a difference a year makes! amirite???

I feel Ferraro is another Glendening. I think he deserves the chance we gave Glendening. Those two and Miller were very good together against the Lightning, and I wouldn’t mind seeing what that line could do in a full season.

Drewbacca - Luke - Lando. It's meant to be.
