Yeah, think I saw something about Baldwin being eligible for the ECHL playoffs which Idaho is in. Same with Tousignant I believe.

They'd have to call up Sloan before trade deadline. Remember they're going to hopefully do the paper send down/call ups for Fraser, Sceviour, and Chaisson. They can only do 4 call ups after the trade deadline other than emergencies. So there's 3 for sure.

I have a feeling Commodore is meant to be a 7th/8th D, that back up in case of injuries.

Course, the deadline isn't until this afternoon so Dallas may move a dman or two still.

I thought Campbell was 6'4 and Ritchie like 6'3". This picture makes him look 2" taller than Campbell.

Campbell's knees are bent and his skates look to be lower than Ritchie's. Also Campbell is def not 6'3".

I thought they had eliminated that rule?

You're thinking of the clear day rosters right? That is gone, instead it's now that for an AHL player to be eligible for the playoffs they have to be on the AHL roster by then end of the NHL Trade deadline.

After that the NHL team can call players up 4 times unless it's emergency callups.

As for height difference between Campbell and Ritchie, it's skates and perspective. They look to be close to the same height with that factored in

There is a ton of debate and no confirmation. Several great sources have said that rule has been eliminated ... including the President of the Hershey Bears. It seems the Dallas Stars though are adamant it still exists. Both Mark and Mike have mentioned the team told them it still existed.

Who knows .... but I'm leaning toward it not existing. It's a dumb rule, and Burke pushed for it to be eliminated. The idea was to make it easier to get young NHLers back into the AHL playoffs.

I can't imagine they eliminated the stupid Clear Day, but they didn't fix the dumb roster move limit.

Yeah I'm reading this article and the writer seems pretty certain that the rule is gone.

It would be nice to see some type of official announcement on the subject.

Sounds like Ritchie will replace Chiasson for right now:

Quote:
"I think you use players where their skill dictates," said Desjardins. "We'll probably get Ritchie to fill Alex Chiasson's role. That's a big role to fill because Chiasson has played well for us."

"It's great to see them go up," said Desjardins. "It's a great opportunity for them. That's the nice thing. We're happy to make adjustments when that's the reason. It's not who's out of your lineup, it's who's in the lineup."

Ha! Told you!

Ritchie is similar to Chaisson in size and more willing to crash the net than Chaisson I believe. Which would work well for Dowling and Hedden.

Ritchie's more of a crasher/sniper, Chiasson's more of a Huselius.

Yeah, Chiasson meshed well with Dowling-Hedden but I think Ritchie would fit their play style better.

Goalie skates are completely different from what everybody else wears. Major height difference.

Dallas Stars are making paper transactions right now involving Fraser, Sceviour & Chiasson to make them eligible for the AHL playoffs.

Eakin, Roussel, Dillon, and Benn's AHL careers are over for this season at least. They were not assigned to the AHL prior to the trade deadline.

Wandell will not return either.

Texas will get Chiasson, Sceviour, and Fraser back for the playoffs.

You could split the Texas Stars right now and make 2 decent AHL teams.

**That is, if half of their players weren't filling the NHL roster

Looks like Sceviour and Jordie are actually back-back. Dallas is riding the 4 players rule thing it seems.

It also looks like Ritchie is wearing the new CCM RBZ skate which has taller holders than most other skates

Seems like they are holding off on signing Curtis McKenzie to an ELC. IIRC, more often than not players sign their ELC before the ATO. That's how it happened with Chiasson last year.

So with Texas signing him to an ATO right now, he'll probably have to earn his ELC between now and the playoffs or next year during the season.

Are there ever streams for our AHL games? Always wanted to see some, and with Dallas the way it is, would much rather watch a winning team.
