Fedoruk wouldn't be eligible for the AHL without clearing waivers, were we to have an existing CBA. He's 25 and played many more games over the waiver exemption than the old agreement allows for a 25-year-old (that being one NHL game; Fridge has played 220). I realize the CBA doesn't exist, but allowing players in the AHL that wouldn't normally be there the most recent still valid seems like somewhat of a slippery slope. Why not let EVERYONE play? Know what I mean?

Dave,
Where did you hear that the holdup from Fridge's play with the Phantoms was due to the NHLPA?
