Any Leaf player that played for the Marlies last season is eligible to play in the AHL during a lockout.

I don't think that's true? Holzer and scrivins cannot go down now because they signed 1 way contracts

Holzer might have to wait a month or more to put on a Leafs jersey, but he is not the only player in limbo. The Marlies could start the season with a roster that includes potential NHLers Ben Scrivens in net, Jake Gardiner on defence and Matt Frattin, Nazem Kadri and Joe Colborne up front.

That is, if they are eligible. At this point, no rules have been put in place in the event of a lockout. But according to Poulin, the belief is that players who do not require clearing waivers would be allowed to play in the minors. Despite being on one-way deals, Holzer and Frattin reportedly fall into that group.

Doesn't that just mean they get paid an NHL salary regardless of if they are in the NHL or AHL? I don't think it has any bearings on the ability to play in the league.

You are correct. The only thing that matters is the amount of NHL games played and years of NHL service. So long as they are under those limits they are fine.

That is not entirely true. Once they hit a certain age I do believe they become waiver eligible. That prevents GMs from keeping players in the minors until they are UFA age. Not sure what the rule is, but there is something else to it aside from games played.

Sorry I meant to say "pro" service and not NHL, but yes, you are correct.

1-way and 2-way contracts have no bearing on waiver eligibility. The amount a player is earning, their experience and age are the determining factors.

I hate EA Sports for spreading this inaccuracy.

I'm honestly considering season tickets this season. If there's no NHL, it's probably not a bad idea.

EA Sports. KEEP IT IN THE GAME.

1 way contract has very little to do with waiver eligibility. It's about how much you are earning in each respective league.

In before smart alec makes a remark about age up, amount of NHL games played down. I believe they're both still intact. Especially since they both played in the AHL last year.
