#2268435 Gustav Nyquist, Joakim Andersson called up from GR

Posted by Jedi on 09 March 2012 - 01:49 PM

Brunnstrum was signed to a 1 year, 2-way contract. So technically he doesn't have to clear waivers to be called up. Only 1-way contracts go through the waiver process.

Not true. Players on 2 way contracts still have to go through waivers if they are not waiver exempt. A 2 way contract only means the player makes different salary depending on where they're playing, typically more in the NHL and less in the AHL, ECHL, et al.

NHL Waiver Rules

Do 1-Way and 2-Way contracts affect Waivers?

Simply put, no they do not. This is a common misconception. 1-way and 2-way contracts have nothing to do with waivers. They are for salary purposes between the AHL and NHL. The confusion is understandable, most players with 2-way contracts are waiver exempt because of the reasons above (in the linked article). Most players on 1-way contracts aren’t waiver exempt. Just keep in mind that the chart above is the only thing that determines a players waiver status.

Plus, the Wings had to place Brunner on waivers to send him down to GR in October.

Some news and notes from the Wings' twitter feed. Nyquist is called up from GR, and it seems that now Zetterberg is missing from practice. Hopefully Z only has the day off. Also, Jimmy and Nick skated prior to the practice.


The Red Wings have recalled Gustav Nyquist from @GriffinsHockey of the American Hockey League.


Thursday's practice is underway at JLA. Datsyuk and Ericsson are both skating. Bertuzzi, Kindl and Zetterberg are absent.


Nick Lidstrom (ankle) and Jimmy Howard (lower body) skated prior to the team's practice this morning.

And finally from Ansar Khan...

Wings practicing with these lines: 51-13-26, 20-43-93, 11-8-39, 96-48; 55-23, 27-18, 2-37, 52; 31-36

*Update* The Red Wings have now recalled Joakim Andersson from GR, as Abdelkader is a game time decision with the flu.

Happy Birthday to the Godfather of LGW!

Does this mean you have to grant favors today, or is it still only the day of your daughter's wedding?

Easiest shootout save of Price's career!

Then again, Wings fans don't have a whole lot of room to talk, after this gem...

#2265093 Lidstrom to win Norris trophy?

Posted by Jedi on 29 February 2012 - 10:17 AM

I just don't see Lidstrom winning this year. There's still time, if he has a spike in offensive production, and if Weber goes down with injury (not wishing that to happen, of course), then he might win. Finalist, probably. Winner, doubtful.

Did a question mark just suddenly appear in the title? Because when I clicked on it to reply there wasn't one.

Ninja Mod wasn't quite so sneaky this time.

#2264583 Brad Stuart's family issues

Posted by Jedi on 28 February 2012 - 03:06 PM

Where's a working Portal device when you need one?

Obviously I hope Stuart stays here, but given those circumstances, I can't say I blame him for looking somewhere on the West Coast. Even if it's just not wanting to move the family, you still gotta feel for the guy.

#2264425 Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

Please remember to keep this discussion on topic, everyone. For the record, criticizing each other's dedication as a fan, or their posting style would be considered "off topic".

Ok guys. Let's refocus the discussion to the trade deadline. I think there's been more than enough criticism of each other's posting styles.

Would be a good addition but weren't there reports that the Avs were a little annoyed that Quincey was dealt to the Wings after they moved him to Tampa? MIght scupper a deal.

Actually, it sounds like Greg Sherman (Avs GM) knew that the Bolts might end up flipping Quincey, as he said that Yzerman brought up the idea of a 3 team trade when they were working out the details of Downie to Colorado.


Said Sherman:
"I think there's a bit of both there. I had good conversations with Steve in there [being] potentially a 3-way scenario. But what we're trying to do is improve our club and Steve was a piece that we wanted to add, so to your point of washing your hands, once you make that move and you get the player that you're looking to bring in, then what happens from there is their business. Kyle played very well for us and he wore the jersey with pride."
