Check it out for all this, plus the weekly Three Star selections from the Blues' deep and talented prospect stable.
My original post was kind of mean, so I'll just summarize the points:
  • Trying to force Tarasenko to play in Peoria would endanger his relationship with the Blues, for only the *possible* benefit of a few wins for our farm team. I don't think it's worth it, do you?
  • You are correct that Tarasenko is not waiver eligible
  • D'Agostini, Sobotka, Pietrangelo, and Shattenkirk are all waiver eligible due to their ages and the number of NHL games they've played.
  • You can't "withdraw" a player from waivers after he's been claimed. He's gone.
  • Other teams are able to assign players to their AHL affiliates because those players haven't played enough NHL games to be rendered waiver eligible. Examples: RNH, Taylor Hall, Nick Leddy
