So "Years from Signing NHL" is a hell of a misnomer.
So Savard qualifies, on account of having 4 playing seasons.
I think where we are differing is that I think once age is established-during draft year-it doesn't change and you seem to be letting it change based upon other events.
As I read this mumbo jumbo I think Savard has only played 2 years since his first NHL season was 2011-2012 (31 games),2012-13 was 2 and this coming year is 3.
Look at this excerpt
For purposes of Regular Waivers, the five (5) year exemption for an 18 year old
skater and the four (4) year exemption for a 19 year old skater shall both be reduced to three (3)
years commencing the first season that the 18 or 19 year old skater plays in eleven (11) NHL
Games or more. The next two (2) seasons, regardless of whether the skater plays any NHL
Games in either season, shall count as the second and third years toward satisfying the exemption
Maybe DSL is right- we should let someone else tell us
