ducks have assigned hampus lindholm [2012 first rounder] to the AHL. Interesting I thought they had an age restriction, could we see reilly in marlies or maybe even percy? I doubt it though, well if lindholm can go than reilly should be able to also, unless lindholm is 20
personally I want them both in junior so maybe they can both make team canada
The part that shocks me the most is when Burke signed Holzer to a contract it was a 1 way deal. So if Holzer wanted to play for the Marlies, he would have to clear waivers and it wouldn't happen. Very questionable especially with the lockout potential when he was signed.
Holzer is still waiver exempt for 1 more year or 68 more NHL games played, whichever comes first. 1-way and 2-way contracts are irrelevant in terms of waivers. They only dictate if there are separate salaries for the NHL and AHL, depending on where you are.
Oh, and how the **** is RNH allowed to be in the AHL? He's 19 and a CHL draftee.
Frattin is ineligible to play for the Marlies during the lockout because he is no longer on his entry-level deal. He signed a 2-year, one-way contract this summer. He can only play for the Marlies if they put him on waivers, which obviously isn't going to happen.
Does anyone here have high hopes for Brad Ross? Ive heard the Tucker comparisons and Im not seeing it . I dont like that pick at all. He sure has done well with Portland, even when his 2 NHL linemates left the team so thats bodes well. Im just not sold on him. I hope Jerry D'amigo is given a real chance. He was outstanding in the AHL playoffs. I think he can do well in the NHL. Excellent PK and hard worker. Solid NHL build as well. Plays well with KAdri.
