Pretty sure Danis is waiver eligible btw. Makes the situation even more interesting.

From the new CBA which was released here at HF a few weeks ago:


13.4 Exempt Players. Players who meet the criteria set forth below are exempt from Regular and Re-Entry-Waivers:
GOALIES SKATERS
Age Years from Signing NHL NHL Games Played Years from Signing NHL NHL Games Played
18 6 80 5 160
19 5 80 4 160
20 4 80 3 160
21 4 60 3 80
22 4 60 3 70
23 3 60 3 60
24 2 60 2 60
25+ 1 1

As used above, NHL Games include NHL Regular Season and NHL Playoff Games.

I know its scrambly but basically, Danis will be 25 next TC. What this (should) show is that once a goalie hits 25 years old, the amount of NHL games played doesn't matter. The only way the goalie is not eligible for waivers is if he signed his first pro deal within the year. That is not the case with Danis as he signed with us in the spring of 2004.
