In Topic: Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

28 July 2014 - 01:37 PM

And with a 3 year deal, Tatar is an RFA not UFA, when the deal expires.

If another team claims him on waivers, doesn't he have to be placed on their active NHL roster?  Or can you claim someone and assign them to the AHL?


In 99.999999% of the time, a claimed player would have to go through waivers a second time if claimed by an NHL team who then wanted to assign the player to the AHL.  The lone exception to that is when a player who was already claimed on waivers is waived a second time & the team that initially lost him on waivers reclaims him.  In that case, the original team can send him straight to the AHL.

These AHL signings are nice depth, especially when Holland dinks around and loses his players with no exemptions to waivers.  Someone has to take those spots in GR.  We've signed 4 new guys for GR and will probably lose Aubry, Callahan, Nestrasil, Ferraro, Fournier, Parkes, Coetzee, and Emmerton.  Almqvist already bolted to Europe.  All these guys are UFA's or RFA's or already signed, but have to pass waivers in order to stay in GR.


Already lost Emmerton.  He's off to HC Sochi in the KHL.  Personally, I'm not convinced that Callahan and/or Ferraro will be snapped up on waivers if they have to be put through.

Feels like this thread really should be titled "Griffins sign Zengerle" given that this is an AHL signing only.  Just feels to me that saying the Wings signed him implies incorrectly that he's on the 50 man roster, which he's not.

How about "The Kicking Tires Arena" 




It will actually be the Belle Tire Kicking Arena.   


Yes, it absolutely will be corporate named.  Too many $$$s at stake with that.
