Hands made of stone at the NHL level, but was a decent scorer in juniors/the ahl, so there is hopes that still develops (he has missed substantial time to knee injuries, those are now behind him)Upside is probably gritty 3rd line winger.

Thanks to you both. Seems like someone I'd definitely be interested in for the Sabres. I'm not sure when waiver order reset if it already has, but if it has we'd be a pretty high priority considering we go into tonight in 14th in the East.

Can Tyrell play center? Is it his natural position? I don't see how he doesn't get claimed.

I second this, I'd give him a shot in buffalo. He's much better than Ellis and mccormick

He can, but only played wing with Tampa.

I get that Dana Tyrell is fast but the doom I'm seeing over this move is out of this world. Would I rather lose Labrie over Tyrell? Sure I would. Would I be absolutely shocked if Tyrell turned into anything more than an average 3rd/4th line grinder? Yup.

I hope Tyrell doesn't get claimed. Great 3-4 line player. Stupid move by the Bolts.

I thought Lightning fans were enjoying Labrie last season, no? What happened to him?

I don't have much first-hand knowledge of Petrecki (he's only played one game for San Jose), but from what the sages over in Worcester say, he's made a lot more progress than you would think.

He came out of college and was totally run over by the AHL. Slowly he's gone from being a liability, to being mediocre, to being a good defensive dman with NHL potential. It took a while, but defensemen mature in unusual timeframes.

Based on the game he played, I don't see him being worse than most team's #6/7. I doubt he can get out of the bottom pairing, but hey. He's young and with NHL playtime it's hard to say where his ceiling is.

Nothing happened to him, but to the rest of the team.
we have now a though guy in Crombeen (even if he isn't an heavyweight) and there are for sure better players out there because Labrie will never make more than a few points in a full NHL season. He isn't really good enough as a hockey player, he is mostly up because of his toughness

Petrecki and Tyrell clear waivers.

Detroit puts Joey MacDonald on waivers, Buffalo puts Matt Ellis on waivers.

So much for these guys having value. So McDonald needs waivers to get called up?

Wow. That is genuinely surprising.

Maybe Yzerman warned all the other GMs if anyone claimed Tyrell there'd be a repeat of what happened to Daoust

I thought weekend waivers lasted 48 hours?

Anyway, what will happen when Detroit gets all their goaltenders healthy? Will they use three goaltenders in Grand Rapids or are they gonna send McCollum or Mrazek to the ECHL?

MacDonald was on the IR, he needed waivers to go back to the AHL and play.

They did away with that in the new CBA. All waivers are 24 hours now.

After the way Mrazek played, I wonder if there's any consideration to keeping him around. Probably not. He'll probably go to the AHL and they'll try to loan McCollum or MacDonald elsewhere.

Yes. Get Joey Mac to A now to keep Griffins in playoff race and get there in solid position. McCollum hasn't been great lately.

When Gustavsson comes back, send Mrazek down, if McCollum sucks, send him to ECHL. Or look for trade options with Joey Mac.

The Wings have a goalie surplus right now...

As it stands-
1. Howard
2. Mrazek
3. MacDonald (rehab)
4. McCollum
5. Pearce

When everyone is healthy-
1. Howard
2. Gustavsson (NHL backup)
3. MacDonald (NHL backup if Gustavsson is not healthy, not a lot of upside to having him in the AHL over younger prospects. He has already requested a trade this offseason)
4. Mrazek (Doubtful to stick longterm in Detroit this year, he should be playing everyday in the AHL)
5. McCollum (AHL backup behind Mrazek or maybe MacDonald although MacDonald seems the odd fit)
6. Pearce (Has spent sometime in the ECHL this year, I could see him going back down there. Although maybe McCollum goes to the ECHL and plays every day while Pearce backs up in the AHL)

I do not think it would be a big loss to lose MacDonald on waivers, mainly once Gustavsson gets healthy. I appreciate what he did last year, mainly his wins on our home winning streak but he has the skills to be an NHL backup and I hope he gets that chance. He had already requested a trade this offseason before his injury, the injury may scare other teams off via waivers.

Mrazek should play every day. He will be 21 next week and is only in his first pro season. It will help him in the long run to be starting in the AHL, if Howard goes down then give him some starts at the NHL.

I would put the odds at 20/80 against that McCollum ever sticks in the NHL and even lower for Pearce (10/90) to stick. They are fungible and a dime a dozen talents, meaning I wouldn't worry if they are forced to repeat in the ECHL or if they do not get decent time in deferece to Mrazek at Grand Rapids.

I'm wondering if putting Joey Mac on waivers is possibly KH giving him a chance to be an NHL backup somewhere. And if he doesn't, it still gives the Griffins some help.
