Take McDonagh: it's when he signed his contract (not sure exactly what age he signed--but am 99% sure it was before he turned 21). So you look at the chart and discover that if he's played less than 160 NHL games--and remember it's regular season games and playoff games--he's waiver exempt and would be eligible to play in the AHL during the lockout. For better or worse, he's played in more than 160 games, so he can't play in the AHL. Ditto Hagelin: he signed at 22, has played more than 70 NHL games and so can't play in the AHL during the lockout because he's no longer waiver exempt.

The chart you originally posted is correct by the way.
So the games played stipulation is for when you signed the contract, not current age. That makes sense. I was on the right track at least
