He is a draftee, 20 years old and has never been called up before.

Did I miss something or did the NHL change the rules over the weekend such that any player involved in any internal transaction is now exposed to waivers? If Jags goes on IR for his groin to we have to worry about him getting snapped up when he comes off the list?
Jesus H. Christ. Dellapina sounds like he's losing it. Why would Dubinsky be subject to waivers? He's in his first pro year EVER.

And Girardi isn't much different. Jesus, what ****** reporting.

Either Dellapina is brilliant and knows secrets no one else does, or he's really lost his grip on how the NHL works be saying that anyone called up would be subject to waivers.

edit: Maybe I took this the wrong way...maybe he believes the Rangers would have to send one of their current forwards down in order to bring up Dubinsky, and that's what he means by exposing a forward to waivers. That's probably more likely, in fact.

But it still doesn't make sense because the Rangers do not have to send a forward down to call one up. They have the roster space and could just scratch a current forward and insert the callup into the lineup. Either way, it's still poor reporting
