With @TSNBobMcKenzie reporting Pierre-Cedric Labrie on waivers, sounds like it's to sign him to an NHL deal

Does this mean we would have to place Conacher on waivers if we were to sign him? Or are the rules different for overage prospects?

well deserved for Labrie he has improved a lot in the past 2 years.

I hope he gets a call-up during this contract.

"His most glaring weakness is his skating. While his direction-changing and turning isn't too bad, he's extremely slow at this point and also needs to work on his conditioning.

Future

Labrie had a surprisingly effective first season as a pro but expectations must be tempered. Labrie’s limited skating will prevent him from ever being more than a role player at any level." http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospec...-cedric_labrie

He sounds like Kubina's French Canadian cousin

Kubina's skating is agony to watch, but I tell you what, he put together his best game in years against the Flyers. He was bordering on precognitive with where he positioned himself. Thank the baby Jesus he did too.

#tblightning announce signing of Pierre-Cedric Labrie to a 2-year, 2-way contract; can't think of why he's on waivers unless it's to callup?

he's injured right now so cant be call-up.

Players signed during the season must pass throught waivers.

Canucks signed him as an undrafted free agent out of junior. They liked his size and were hoping that he could turn out to be a hidden gem. He never progressed, was traded to St. Louis for basically nothing and wasn't re-signed by St. Louis after his entry level contract expired.

Good for him. I'm hoping we see him in a Lightning uni at some point soon.

As you probably have read, Labrie has to be put through waivers because he has exceeded a certain number of AHL games.

Maybe Boucher is tired of having Malone/Downie/Thompson fight.

Yeah, I guess he's a fighter, but looking at the videos, he doesn't win much.

So if he clears, he's coming up here? Maybe called up to kick some ass while we're dealing with some injuries? I don't know this whole thing kinda baffles me a bit. Why sign him now if the intention isn't to call him up? Is he a temporary fill-in due to trade, kicks some ass while he's here, then sent back down and then becomes the new Oberg whenever we have an injury?

SFY and his mysteries..

Lesser folks like us shouldn't ponder things like this. We play Checkers, SFY plays Starcraft 2 Code S. You're lucky your brain didn't melt simply typing out your wonderment.

Apparently there's a rule about the maximum games in the AHL and he passed that. Not sure how it works, but here is what I found. He had to sign an NHL contract and then be put on waivers first. (He's played 283 AHL games).

Each AHL Club must dress for each regularly scheduled or play-off game, at least eleven (11) Players, other than goaltenders, who have played in a total of not more than two hundred and sixty (260) regular season games in the National Hockey League, American Hockey League, International Hockey League, or any European Elite League, prior to the start of the season, and one (1) player, other than goaltenders, who has played in a total of not more than three hundred and twenty (320) regular season games in the National Hockey League, American Hockey League, International Hockey League, or any European Elite League, prior to the start of the season.
