I haven't been following Hanzal's injury, but could Sully coming up mean he is out tonight? If it means Pyatt is taking a seat, thank goodness. Pyatt is ****ing useless.

What does that mean emergency basis?

Can he stay indefinitely?

Does he have to clear waivers at some point?
-regular waivers or re-entry waivers

Could this be a set up for a possible trade?

I don't know what Pyatt's been doing. Chip has been more noticeable than him. For most of last season Pyatt was one of our leading goal scores. He just seemed to be able to pick em up every now and then. He's a UFA after this year, and I can't see very many teams, with serious offers, calling his way this summer with the way he's been playing so far.

POS? What can you say, it's like a broken record with him. Always underachieving and giving off that lazy vibe. Maybe dress him with Chip, Bizz and scratch Pyatt. POS may spark something since he'll be playing against LA.

Emergency recall had nothing to do with it.... I told you before that O'Sullivan didn't need re-entry waivers because his AHL salary of 105K is below the required threshold for this season. I confirmed it with Brad Treliving.

McElhinney need recall waivers because his salary at the AHL was over 200k. Pogge didn't need waivers at all to be recalled or sent down because he cleared waivers at the start of the season and his AHL salary is 105K and he wasn't on the Coyotes roster for 10 games or 30 days.

Here's the rule again....

Quote:
The Re-Entry Waiver procedure will not, however, be applicable to Veteran Minor League Players defined as follows: (i) for goaltenders, Players who have: (A) played in 180 or more professional games in North America (NHL, AHL and ECHL), and (B) not spent more than 80 NHL games on NHL roster over the prior two (2) seasons or more than 40 NHL games on NHL roster in the immediately prior season; and (ii) for defensemen and forwards, Players who have: (A) played in 320 or more professional games in North America (NHL, AHL and ECHL), and (B) not spent more than 80 NHL games on NHL roster over the prior two (2) seasons or more than 40 NHL games on NHL roster in the immediately prior season.

Edwards was very candid tonight about his time in Portland...

Quote:
"I thought he produced for us, but I thought there was a lot more to his game. If he comes back, we’ll ask a lot for him because I didn’t think he gave us near what his potential is while he was here. He offensively dynamic, but to me the play away from the puck would have to be a lot better. I hope for his sake he never comes back, but if he does come back. We’ll ask him to do what we’ve asked everybody else to do. That’s having a larger buy-in to the way we have play to be successful – 200 foot game. Be a harder worker. Work hard away from the puck and play hard in the defensive zone."

Meanwhile, he was +2, and made a hell of a nice pass to Torres for goal #2. He didn't play half bad, and it was one of the first times he'd been given meaningful moments since the first handful of games he's played for the Yotes. (that being said, he'll be in Portland before long...)

He scored in Portland and was a plus-2 here as well.... The issue is his play away from the puck and his attitude.

I think this team is in big trouble without Schmitty.Trade is in order if it is longer than2 weeks for his return-clock is ticking.

Tippett said he had a good attitude when they sent him to Portland and that they thought he sparked the team there.

Yeah they say a lot of things that are clearly not true, anyone that saw him play in portland would call that a very blatant fabrication.

I agree... My post #14 clearly showed that Edwards wasn't pleased and not only that O'Sullivan himself was vocal on his displeasure about being in Portland.... Like I said, he put up the points, but his play away from the puck was that of a player in Major Midget.

Would we be better off with MacLean over POS? Really, what are our options?
Our depth other than on D is underwhelming.

The fact that he voiced his displeasure at being in Portland in a good thing. It is in no way an attitude problem. He shouldn't want to be there and he voiced the same displeasure when going to Houston. The coach in Houston anticipated that it would be very difficult for him transitioning to the ahl as it can be a huge disappointment and let down for anyone in that situation, so he met with him right off the bat to lay the foundation and get the kid bought in down there. Yeo indicated it was all good in the end as he had a great attitude. Perhaps O'sullivan still has a good attitude with the players etc.

So he didn't invest in the play without the puck and he needs to be accountable for that. He did add immediate offense which is good. Hopefully when he goes back down he can get his head in the game. From what i read the coach was basically saying he needs more out of him and wants him to work to his potential. He is going to ask what he asks of everyone else, which of course the coach should have done at the onset.

I think we need to get Vancouver into talks and make a bold move for Schneider. Anybody not named OEL, Yandle or Hanzal should be in play.
