It all comes down to the age he signed the ELC and how long it has been OR how many games he's played. In Bartulis' case the years is the issue. If it has indeed been 3 years, he would need to clear waivers. But is it 3 years from his AHL debut? That would be October 5th. Or 3 years from the date he signed the deal? Which I don't know when that was.
the wording in the CBA doesnt help either. I still dont know what the deal is. One thing tho is how will it effect Bartulis mentalty if he is sent down. yeah he is a professional. But hes still a young kid who has played pretty decent i think at the NHL level and its looking like hes being shoved aside along with the rest of our young defenseman by bringing in fossils like O'Donnell and crap like Walker.
