AHL 'veterans rule'

Demoting Powe, Haley, Syvret and Johnson had me wondering whether the 'Pack would have issues due to the AHL 'veterans rule' which limits having too many 'very experienced' pro players dressed for AHL games

It seems their roster is pretty good in this way,
if/when they play the 5 Ranger property vets,
they just can't dress both
Brodie DuPont (if they sign him, and he's been consistently productive in the Exhibition games)
and Andrew Carroll.
We'd want at least 8 real prospects playing Forward any way.

if my info is accurate, these are the guys affected,
and an un-official description of the rule is included with URL where i found it:

> 320 Powe Johnson Haley Syvret Dupont(AHL try-out)

260 > <320 Mashinter Carroll(AHL contract)

[Bickel comes in a few games under at 246]

"...the veteran rule states that 12 of those players must have played fewer than 260 regular season pro games. Of the remaining 6, one of those must have played fewer than 320 regular season pro games. Of the remaining 5 at that point, there are no restrictions on how many games have been played. All measures are taken at the beginning of the season and don't change as the season goes on."
