That was obviously only a minor issue, but being at 50 contracts generally prevents a club picking someone from waivers.
Of course, as it stands now, this won't be a problem this season since some players will be sent back to juniors and their contracts won't count this season.
And that's really what it boils down to. We're not at a
50, so to speak. There is some flexibility there.
If anyone is curious, here are the players on our reserve list with contracts set to expire after this season:
It will be nice to shed the contracts of guys like Chappell, Baldwin and Klassen, who aren't even good AHL players.
Also, can someone look at CapGeek's reserve list and tell me who they're missing? They only list us at 48 contracts, which will be 49 when Deveaux is added. So either RB is off by one, or CapGeek is missing one player.
EDIT: Nevermind, it's Brendan Bell that they're missing. RB (as usual) is right, we're officially at 50 SPC until the trio of ELC guys are returned to Juniors.
It's just pain.
