I would've taken a long vacation til next year. Just go to South America, Southeast Asia, or Oceania .... you don't get many chances like that and going when you're 36 with a wife and kids is booooooring.
Question. Do our qualified RFAs need contracts to report to the AHL? Players being Sheppard, Nick Pertecki, Kennedy. Would Shep need to be on waivers to get the the AHL??
If players don't have a contract they can't play.
Sheppard needs to clear waivers and under the rules announced does not qualify for any of the exceptions. Both Kennedy and Petrecki need to clear waivers when signed, but if (when) they miss this special waiver period they are eligible to be signed to AHL contracts and play in the AHL.
