EDIT: I just realized that technically, this is O'Byrne's 3rd season since signing his first NHL contract. I am not sure what exactly they mean on that page by ''years from signing 1st NHL contract'' either, actual calendar years or hockey seasons. He could be waiver eligible after-all.
D'Agostini is definitely waiver exempt too. Only 22 years old and 4 NHL games played.
After his 80th game, OB will not be exempt, because he signed his first contract at 21. But if he started this season as exempt, he will remain so until the end of the season.
Sorry about Daggs, I was 100% sure that the last I read that section of the CBA it did mention the AHL games as included in the limit for 70-80-160 games limit for the exemption. That damn CBA is quite large, so Chomsky should calm himself. It's not as if HE never made a mistake.
