For LTIR you have to file an exemption. Being that Cote has been out for a week now, I don't think that takes a week to do.
You can put anyone on LTIR anytime. What you are missing is that the SALARY does not come off UNTIL the 10th game is missed. There were not 10 games left in the regular season, so no relief this year for Cote's injury.
Couldn't send Parent down for a day, you cannot send down an injured player.
There was simply NO cap space left for ANY Phantom callup. This Sloane guy, while signed to an ATO by the Phantoms had NEVER actually PLAYED a professional game.... hence he was able to be signed to a 24 hour emergency try out contract at a price of $100. If Parent can't go Saturday, you'll see someone else on a similar deal....it CANNOT be Sloane again.
What I don't understand is why not send Nodl or Powe back down and recall Syvret/Guenin/whoever? I can't see that double shifting Asham or Carcillo every fourth or fifth shift would have been a problem.....
It's all a moot point Monday....there is no cap in the playoffs and there will be a plethora of call ups available if necessary including Sbisa and Kukkonen.
I think the wont send Nodl down because they dont have any call ups left anyway. Or just 1 or something. Same reason why they wouldnt send Parent down( I think you can send down if not on IR) because you only get a certain amount of call ups after the deadline
The Flyers found a loophole in the Collective Bargaining Agreement by signing Sloane to a one-day contract and paying him per diem. His one-day salary did not count against the salary cap and it's entirely possible his NHL career began and ended on the same day.
If Parent cannot play against the Islanders on Saturday, Holmgren said he would be forced to sign another defenseman to an emergency, 24-hour contract, or play with 17 skaters instead of 18.
Sloane, a 6-foot-4, 220-pounder, played four seasons at Colgate University. When his senior season ended last month, he signed an amateur tryout contract with the AHL Phantoms on March 17, but did not play a game under coach John Paddock.
"If he had, we couldn't have signed him to play," Holmgren said.
Sloane, who wore No. 40 against the Rangers, grew up just a short drive from the Wachovia Center.
He seemed awestruck by his opportunity to skate with the Flyers Thursday in one of the world's most famous arenas.
"I'm very surprised and excited about this opportunity," Sloan said before Thursday night's game. "I had no idea this was happening."
In 35 games at Colgate this season, Sloane posted four assists and 37 penalty minutes and was named to the ECAC Hockey All-Academic Team. In 129 career games over four years at Colgate, Sloane recorded 10 goals and 13 assists for 23 points and 100 penalty minutes.
Today at practice, defenseman Ryan Parent declared himself as ready to play against the Islanders. Parent left Tuesday's game against Florida with a lower body injury, and sat out last night's hard-fought 2-1 loss to the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
"I had no real problems with it, so I'll give it a go tomorrow," said Parent after practice. "You're obviously a little hesitant to push it, but nothing is really bothering me too much. It's good."
he looked shaky his first shift but beyond that he was not bad considering he has not practiced with the team longer than a day, and has never worked with our system at all besides rookie camps.
you said "system"
chip all puck out off the glass up the wall even if 2 players are right there and you have other options, or blindly reverse it behind the net. and whatever you do, don't make a short smart pass to a teamate in the zone for him to get it out.
I liked the way he played in the game (maybe because he wasn't given a chance to mess up from his limit ice time), but I wouldn't mind seeing him suit up again. Maybe I'm just bias because he is from Ambler and I'm from the same area. Also can't forget about Voce, a Philly born player for the Phantoms.
