In the sense they qualified him. He must have a great year or he is out of the Sabres future plans. Right now I agree he's on the outside looking in.

There is no reason to give up on Adam. Some kids take a bit longer to get it. At any rate, he does tend to score goals. Though the sample sizes are super small, in his first stretch in the NHL he scored 1 in every 6 games. The next year he scored 1 in every 5. This year 1 in every 4 (only 4 games!).

He's a long shot at this point, but has enough goal scoring potential to keep an eye on.

There is role for guys like this but you need real talent to win. I wouldn't say he's high on talent. He works it, good for him. But any reduction in his skill has him out of NHL, he's a borderline player.

I don't know why he was so hyped up to begin with?

The pipeline is much deeper now and will only continue to get deeper, Buffalo needs to stop wasting time on this kid, he had one good year in Portland and has regressed from there except for last season where he had 37 points but thats still nowhere near 62 in Portland.

So Flynn actually got a significant reduction in salary compared to his college UFA deal ($925k + $100k in performance bonuses == $1,025,000 cap hit). Not surprising as that deal was bait to land him when he was free to sign anywhere and now he's an RFA.

Flynn might not have a roster spot on many of the other NHL teams. I think he (or his agent) knew that as well. He has yet to prove himself for a longer period of time, so a bridge contract like this one seemed perfect. He gets guaranteed NHL money in the second year of the contract. If he shows up as he did, he will get a way better contract after this one expires.

Question regarding Luke Adam's contract. According to capgeek, he is making $140,000 less than his last contract's cap hit. Since his last contract had bonuses, is this why he was able to get less than the 10% increase that his QO is supposed to be? Is it possible that the Sabres told him that they would not qualify him if he asked for more than his prior contract? Is that against the rules in the eyes of the CBA?

How does the fact that he accepted his qualifying offer reflect that at all?

QO isn't based on cap hit. It's based on salary. Adam's NHL salary last season, not counting his signing bonus, was 700k. Because of where that falls, he only requires a 5% raise in his QO. That brings us to 735k

Ya but when he signed, he expected to make his ahl salary not his nhl salary. Him getting promoted and playing well earned him a one way contract his 2nd year.

A two-way deal? Maybe he can become the new Mancari

He got a two-way deal because his qualifying offer doesn't have to be one-way. That's all it means. It doesn't reflect anything that his play this year didn't already show.

Luke Adam is not exempt from waivers.

Would another team claim him?

Yes, he is still too young for a final judgement. So I'm sure there will be a team that takes him. There is absolutely no risk.

They'd have to put him on their NHL roster, and since most teams have non-exempt players of their own, they'd likely have to put one of their own on waivers... and there in lies the risk

No chance. He's barely a competent AHL player.

Except if you take him you HAVE to have him on your active NHL roster. So it a team claims him it means they A) Have an open spot and B) Expect him to be capable of full-time NHL duty.

The only time I could see him getting claimed is if it's late in the season and one of the teams that's clearly out of the playoffs suffers a bunch of injuries and just starts plugging young guys into the lineup, ala Florida last year.
