What is the deal with waivers with the new CBA? Now that Montoya is signed and Lundquist will probably sign. If a contract is offered to Weekes again and Labarbara, I believe is already under contract, what will happen when the season starts?
If Weekes and Labarbara are 1 and 2, that would mean that Montoya and Lundquist would have to be sent down to Hartford. Neither would clear waivers. With the new CBA supposedly players have to clear waivers to be called up. Neither Montoya nor Lundquist would clear if they had to be called up mid-season or whatever. Some team would snatch them up and the Rangers would have to pay 50% of the contract.
haven't seen anything official but the report i heard about guys needing to clear waivers to be called UP applied to guys make $75k or less in the ahl...so all teams have to do is make sure their top prospects make atleast $80k in the ahl.
