So ummm... Fel... can you post the Waiver rules in the OP of the FAQs thread?

So people stop assuming 1-way vs 2-way decides waiver elegibility... when that has nothing to do with it?

Big day, Schneider re-signs in Vancouver to no ones surprise, nobody still wants Luon8o except the Panthers for nothing, oh and the Nucks still suck.

Jokes aside busy day to be stuck working all day.

It wasn't talked about too much actually.

There has been talk of him going to Winnipeg, for the sheer factor that its the Jets. I don't know, I could see him going to Detroit, like many old players do to end their career. A contender, thats all I know.

If he leaves Phoenix, I thought I heard he didn't want to go far. I'd say SJ makes a little bit of sense for him.

New to me. I didn't think he would go within the division. Wishful thinking, I guess.

The Schultz news really surprised me, I still highly doubt he picks Minnesota though over the Canadian teams or even NYR because they all are very good situations for him. If nothing else though, he can be an example for other FA's who cut Detroit and Pittsburgh out of the mix and are instead considering up and coming teams like the Wild.

You had me, and then you included the sarcasm sign. I hope that it does set an example showing the WIld are actually open for business. Don't know why the sarcasm sign is there.

NYR and Toronto would be awful situations for him. Neither has room for him in the lineup, so he'd be banished to the AHL almost for certain. Ottawa could be the best situation for him. I don't think Edmonton or Vancouver would be wise choices though. As for teams that fit his alleged wants and needs, I'd rank the fit as OTT>MIN>EDM>VAN>NYR>TOR.

I don't know about that Ottawa have a better D corps than us, by far. I don't see him getting as much time as he would here. If Fletcher would promise a spot, I'm sure that we could get him to sign.

Fletch can easily promise a spot.

Gilbert - Schultz
Scandella - Brodin
Stoner - Spurgeon

If Justin Schultz is indeed the second coming of Scott Neidermeyer...

I have issues with the entire Schultz debacle...

Fletch said that he hasn't promised a spot and wouldn't do that. I hope that changes. If thats what it takes, do it.

Yea, the Schultz issue stinks of raunchy ethics.

Then we end up with this!

Suter - Schultz
Brodin - Gilbert
Scandella - Spurgeon
Stoner

Ottawa only has 4 defensemen under contract for next season at the moment, and doesn't have much for prospects knocking on the door in that regard. I think their situation is better for him because he can earn a top 4 spot, has a great shot at the NHL roster, but still has quality players in a safe environment to lean on. In Minnesota, if he earns a spot and someone flounders, it could get dicey pretty quickly if he doesn't have a perfect adjustment period. In Ottawa they have the reigning Norris trophy winner, two grizzled veterans in Phillips and Gonchar, and an up and comer in Cowen. It just seems like a much more stable environment than what we can offer.

With those players, I think we're far more likely to see:

Brodin-Gilbert
Scandella-Schultz
Stoner-Spurgeon

Righties on the right and lefties on the left. Brodin with the vet and Schultz with Scandella.

Mmm. Sound reasoning. I'd like to say their prospect pool can't hold a light to ours, but that would be wrong. So I'd be wrong in saying we have a brighter future. Ottawa seems like a good fit, but it looks like their top 4 is basically set already.

I'm still learning the emoticons and that was the wrong one, no sarcasm intended there. I don't see a fit in Vancouver, and yes Ottawa is stable but VERY deep on the blueline, so are the Rangers, the two teams that offer the best opportunity to me is Edmonton and Minnesota, so it's can Fletcher outsell the Oilers on our future? Guess we'll find out.
