He would become eligible for waivers after 3 years or 160 games as seen here.

He's only played 53 regular season games plus however many playoff games; so he clearly hasn't surpassed 160 games. The issue is the 3 years. We are just about at the 3rd year. He's played for the Phantoms in 2007-2008, 2008-2009, and part of 2009-2010 (before getting called up). However his debut was October 5th of the 2007-2008 season. Does that mean we aren't at the 3 years yet?

Basically, what I'm getting at, is there is a chance that Bartulis is not waiver eligible, and we could therefore send him down without the risk of losing him. We are right around the 3 year mark and I'm not sure of the minute details.

I am not entirely sure on this either, someone mentioned earlier(in one of these threads made recently) that he did have to clear.
I know the cases may be differant but LA had Ted Purcell before dealing him to TB and he could not be sent down to Manchester. I forgot the date that he passed the waiver line, but we were talking about it at the booster club table during this past season.
he was well under 100 games at the NHL level at the time.
He played 10 games with the Kings during the 2007-08 season. Not sure of the dates of those games.
Purcell will be 25 in September.
