Piqued, I know you asked us to move along, but I really need to make one point.
This rather rude poster insinuated the veteran rule keeps Goddard out.
Since Texas dresses 18 skaters, 12 have to have played less than 260 REGULAR SEASON GAMES.
ONE can have played 320 or fewer REGULAR season games. That means at any time, no more than FIVE can be on a roster who have played more than 320.
Of the players on Texas' roster Brad Lukowich and Eric Goddard obviously fit in the 5 veteran limit.
Maxime Fortunus is the third with 449 regular season games.
With 313 games, Wathier is the one player with less than 320 games. However, Spang also has played less than 320 with only 312 games. However, since only one counts for this group, he falls into the group of 320 or more.
That means Texas could play every veteran, Godard included, and still add one more vet before they reached the limit. However, Godard sits.
If you are going to go out on a limb, be extremely rude, and quote a rule .... you may want to back up what you are saying. Godard is scratched because he has not played well. Texas has more than enough space for their veterans.
