This doeant even bring up the issue of number of games played. foligno hasnt done a dull length NHL season yet.

Girggensons---his time in Rochester wouldnt count. As with Armia--both their contracts slid last year so why would that exempt them?

Ruhwedel should be eligible too. He did what 7 NHL games last year.

college players cant play if school is in session. Some of the Sabres picks have committed to college for next year.
He said that about Armia before he realized European experience doesn't count, which is why he edited his comment.

Girgenson's time in the AHL absolutely does count and he can only play as one of the 4 players with a year of pro experience. Foligno can not play as he has two seasons of pro experience. Ruhwedel may be eligible depending on how they define a season of pro experience, seeing as how he played very few pro games.
