all that said, we don't even know if greiss is available. SJ likes him and they signed two guys to short deals who may or may not be there for any length of time. i don't see them rushing to move him.
To get that contract talk straight... Thomas Greiss is on an one-year, one-way contract that pays him $550K for 2010/11. He is NOT on an entry-level or two-way contract. He is not exempt from either waivers or reentry waivers, every team can claim him if he is assigned to the minors (due to the years he has been in the league) and if he clears and is brought up again, every team can claim him for half the money and half the caphit (due to the amount he earns in the AHL).
