i don't know, i can think of 1 team that might. it all depends on just how bad nitty is hurt. right now the sharks are doing the nhl/ahl goalie shuffle (especially since the worchester sharks just lost there starting goalie for the season also)

but ray isnt NHL ready. He's made that clear. He needs 3-4 weeks, possibly more, in the AHL to get ready. Why would a team claim a guy who is making it publicly known that he's not capable of playing in the NHL right now.

why would a team sign him just to send him down to the ahl, when they know full well that when he wants to come back up to the nhl he most likely won't clear re-entry waivers?

To help get a leg up on the competition for next season? The Ducks still need a backup for next season and Murray might feel/ Emery has told him that he would be interested in signing with them for next season. Just spitballing here.

Edit: Unless I am mistaken, once he is passed on waivers, the Ducks do not need to bring him through waivers again in order to bring him up to Anaheim. Thus giving Murray/Carlyle another option when giving Hiller some much needed days off while putting in a veteran goaltender who has been the backstop to a previous playoff run.

Why is he waived :

It's like MA Bergeron's situation. He hasn't played in over a year. He could have been sent to the AHL without going on waivers. But the only way was to sent him on a conditionning stint which can't last more than 2 weeks. The Ducks think that he will need more than two weeks to be ready to play in the NHL, that's why they put him on waivers.

By the way, his AHL salary isn't over 105 000$ so he doesn't have to clear re-entry.


Honestly, I don't see why Anaheim needs Emery. I know it's a low risk move but I thought that McBackup was doing a fine job. Anyway, I wouldn't put my hopes too high over a guy who hasn't in twelve months.

Low risk move.

If he does great in the AHL he can come up for the playoffs and push Hiller to be even better.

If he is terrible in the AHL he can sit on the bench in Syracuse for the rest of the season and the Ducks get him off the books July 1st.

also, the ducks goalie depth right now isnt that great and mac isnt the ideal backup. If an injury hits, emery can be called up as an emergency recall without waivers. In the playoffs, he can come up and backup if they're not confident in mac.

After the 3-4 weeks, when/if hes recalled.. Does he have to go thru waivers to be recalled? Im assuming he does, since he had to going down.

thats when you could see somebody claiming him.
No he won't have to clear on the way back up due to his salary being at the magic number of 105,000 in the AHL. Any contracts above that 105 number are the problem. Thats why players on one-way deals have to clear re-entry waivers.

Re-entry later in the year is a different question, but really only a possibility if a non-playoff team has goalie injuries at the time he is called up.

Re-Entry waivers only apply to (non-waiver exempt) players on one-way deals or two-way deals with an AHL salary greater than $105K.

Emery's deal is a two-way SPC at the $105K max - Re-Entry waivers do not apply.

McElhinney has been pretty damn good since coming to Anaheim. Emery will have some hard competetion even if he has success in the AHL. However, McElhinney doesn't have a long sample as a solid backup. Signing a guy with experience like Emery could prove useful if McElhinney starts to struggle. Especially in the playoffs.

yeah, thanks.

i just went back and did my reading. Apparently because emery is on a 2-way and has over 180 pro games experience, he's not subject to re-entry anyways, regardless of his ahl salary.

but until they improve their defence McElhinney hasnt been playing good enough to spell Hiller more often......if not for Hiller playing alot....Anh is probably on the outside looking out....probably your MVP this year.......


bottom line Hiller needs to be given a fair amount of days off till the playoffs otherwise he wil be burnt out....thtas why they are looking for an upgrade....clearly they dont feel comfortable in giving more key starts to McE.....and every gasme is key from now till april
