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.
Wow that's a lot of work. Kudos. But you've never made a ridiculously long gdt like the Philly one to my knowledge.
Nope never taken the time to compile THAT much history.
Besides I kind of look at it like plagarism. He didn't write one word of it, he just took it from other sites and puts it into 1 post.
As someone else mentioned in this thread, he only has to do each one once, and save it somewhere on his computer. The exact same post gets used next time they face the team, but with the tiny addition of whatever happened in their last game.
Any HFBoards users out there, please support Flashy here and get your vote in. He puts in countless hours into GDTs not only there, but here on LGW also. This is an opportunity for us to give back to someone who dedicates a lot of time and effort for free just for our entertainment.
Let's bring him to the final and get him the recognition he deserves.
It's fine being optimistic like that but I don't see what the issue is with just having an insurance policy? When the same players have been injury prone have a back up plan IS THE SAFE THING TO DO. Now holland is putting all his eggs in the "if we stay healthy basket".
Yes I listed 7. 4 or 5 who WILL BE INJURED and three who are fourth liners. That's not enough and as of right now we DONT have a number 2 center. Maybe Weiss lives up to it maybe not.
Nothing wrong with an insurance policy especially when we got the cap space and yes 3m a year for a 50 point guy is cheap.
We also need a top 6 winger not named Alfie or cleary. And IF Weiss lives up to contract(I still doubt it) I'd try legwand at winger cause he is better then any options left in free agency because holland s*** the bed again.
Plus we have Nosek Campbell Porter Miele Pulkinnen and now possibly AA and Mantha fighting for a forward position. Just adding one of those guys puts us at the 23 man roster limit assuming Danny D and Tatar re-sign. There's no room for Legwand whether u like it or not.
And there's Ferraro and Callahan. Lots of prospects clamoring to play.
Exactly. It's not like we're lacking in potential forward depth up front. We've got guys who will be able to step in when players go down.
Why would you pay $3m+ for a guy like Legwand when he's just going to be played by babs on the 4th line. He's definitely not going to be getting 50 points that way.
I don't see the need for the insurance policy, because not only does it block several kids now and in the future, we also have an established 2nd line NHL centre in Weiss. Granted he's coming back from injury, but this isn't Niskanen we're talking about here. Weiss had several productive years in florida.
And do you really think 5 of those C's will be injured all at the same time again? Last year was a freak year for injuries. Of those on your list only Andersson and Glendening are 4th liners. Sheahan and Helm have shown their ability to be good 3rd line centres. Which leaves Datsyuk, Z and Weiss. Whom I don't think are 4th liners.
