we want Poile to try different people and it won't always pan out. If it's true Boychuk reverts back to his original team, then this saves the Preds money also.

After reading some tweets, apparently Boychuk could be back in the Preds organization in a few days.

all from @PaulBranecky, Director of digital media for the Charlotte Checkers

Quote:
Carolina no longer has ability to claim Boychuk and assign him directly to AHL. Pittsburgh, which most recently lost him, now has that right

However, catch is that Nashville could then reclaim him and assign him directly to Milwaukee. MIL currently one point out of playoff spot

Technically Milwaukee isn't 1 point out of a playoff spot. They are in 10th place with 66 points in 60 games. The three teams ahead of them do have 67 points. Chicago, in 7th place, has played 59 games and OKC has played 60 games. Abbotsford has played 65 games.

Milwaukee plays at Chicago on March 24, 30 and April 20. They play at Milwaukee on April 16. The Admirals have no games remaining against OKC or Abby. Milwaukee has 2+2 games against Rockford, who has 66 points in 62 games. Hamilton, with 54 points in 61 games, is probably the only team that has no playoff hopes in the Western Conference. They max out at 94 points and have a magic number of 46.

Milwaukee can get a maximum of 98 points and their magic number is 34. Number one Texas can get 109 points with a magic number of 16.

If I had to guess, I think the reason for us not putting in another claim for Boychuk is we wouldn't be able to send him down if someone else put in a claim. So he'd be stuck on our roster again when there clearly isn't any room. I don't think we'd have any way of knowing if anyone else had put in a claim. It's too risky and he isn't needed on the roster.

I feel bad for the guy, his confidence definitely took a huge beating after being waived 3 times by 3 different teams. Wish the Predators would've kept him he honestly didn't look too shabby compared to half the other forwards. Waive SK instead next time and send Gill with him.

Milwaukee can use more forwards and more scoring. They can use Boychuk. If he goes to Charlotte, he plays 3 games against Milwaukee during the rest of the season.

#preds were first in line to pick up Boychuk. Could have placed him directly in Milwaukee. Per multiple reports he cleared waivers.
I believe Cooper is incorrect when he says Nashville was first in line to pick up Boychuk. The waiver order doesn't change. That is a myth. The only time "first dibs" comes into play is when the waived player is attempted to be traded.

Also, Nashville can only place him in Milwaukee if they were the only one to put in a claim. It turns out that we would have been, but there was no way of knowing that. Had someone else put in a claim Boychuk would be stuck on our roster
