it used to be in order of the team's finish the prior year, then re-adjusted every 20 games throughout the year, so that would be every 12 games this year if the rule is still in place (I assume it is)
So at the 12 game mark, the Isles claim would reflect the current standings, rather than last year.
I thought Boychuk was great in the WJC (the year JT won MVP) but his pro career hasn't been great. Interesting to see the Pens make a claim, a team that has two superstar centres and pretty weak wingers. Pitts is one of those weird teams where it seems like any winger would be in heaven for a chance to play there - but chemistry, when playing with elite players, is far more important than pure talent.
