Hmmm, does this mean Johnson is recalled or was he ever sent down?

He was assigned to Milwaukee this morning and wasn't at practice.

I think the Preds will start the season with only six D on the roster...

Wow, I thought he was going to be on the team this year. I wonder if they're doing with Zigomanis and putting him on waivers, but not assigning him to the AHL incase another team wants him. If not he will be with the big club.

Are you talking about Lundmark, Johnson, or Sulzer...because Zigomanis is not in our camp...

Franson is a niche guy. He has a role that he performs well. Sulzer does everything "okay," but nothing well. If anything, it's Johnson that should have felt cheated, yesterday.

Or try to pick parent back up off waivers.... Which would make an interesting scenario

I kind of expected this, I think with us signing Johnson we don't really need him as our seventh dman.

Must have been unexpected. Otherwise we wouldn't have exposed Johnson to waivers. Pretty strange to do that and a short while later waive Sulzer.

Johnson is already in the minors, so we evidently don't need a seventh defender at all.

Johnson would be first call up then.

So would Sulzer go down to the AHL if unclaimed, or stay will the big club?

Probably will be reassigned. Last year, we started the year with 6 defenders, so we will probably do the same this year. Belak is our emergency 7th dman. I think we want Sulzer to play rather than be scratched.

If Sulzer goes down he won't come back without being on waivers.

Exactly, to be recalled Sulzer has to clear recall waivers, which is the point that makes little sense here...

Recall waivers don't really bother me. I'd rather pay him half his salary for him to be gone than his full salary to be a perma-scratch or play in Milwaukee...

I don't even view him as the next call up anyway. If we have to recall him, then we are in trouble.

Perhaps I underrate Sulzer.

If there is an injury, I don't think he's exposed to waviers. Not exactly sure what happens if/when everone gets healthy.

Regardless, 650K is probably the profits from one playoff game. For all the fuss that made about how to have to make the playoffs to turn a profit, we could have a couple million sitting in the minors.

OK, he cleared but was he assigned to Milwaukee?

so we are only going with 6 dmen? I guess that a money saving move, especially since we are home for 5 of the first 6. I cant imagine we'd only take 6 on the road unless the emergency plan is to play belak at D.

Oops meant to say "Are they doing the same thing the Leafs are doing with Zigomanis and putting him on waivers, but not assigning him to the AHL.

maybe it was a good faith move by the preds. they may have told hm you are going to be the 7th d-man and he wanted an oppurtunity to be a regular top 6 defenseman anywhere and poile put him on waivers. no on ebites, alex eats some humble pie and hopefully works to knock someone out of the lineup

I think it could definitely be that, but regardless, due to visa issues O'Brien isn't scheduled to arrive before late Thursday or Friday, so until he's in town and ready to play I wouldn't expect Sulzer to be going anywhere...
