Thanks! I believe we are at 47 contracts after resigning Franson, and letting go of Lombardi and Aucoin.

Good news for him though, he may actually play in the NHL which is great, if he didn't fit our build, let the guy who isn't getting any younger have his first real shot at a season in the NHL.

He's one of those guys you can let go of and say hope your dream comes true bud.

Please forgive my ignorance I am new on this board, but I don't understand how he was on waivers in the first place. Can someone please enlighten me?

Nobody expected that someone would claim him, but I guess you should expect the unexpected with the Islanders. Either he makes their team or he's back on waivers.

Looks like the Leafs are keeping a handshake deal with a good veteran player that if the Leafs couldn't use him, they would help him find work somewhere in the NHL. Looks like a classy move on the part of the Leafs. Having said this, I'm not sure that an Aucoin type player can be exempted from waivers for the purpose of assignment to the Marlies.

Because of the lock-out, every player who had a NHL/AHL contract (commonly called 2-way) could play in the AHL during the lock-out.

Players who had a NHL-only contract were not allowed to play in the AHL.

Now that the lock-out is over, every player who has a NHL component to their contract must go through waivers if not on the NHL 23-players roster (unless they're waiver-exempted).

It has nothing to do with a gentleman's agreement.

I honestly don't know, I'm sure he's good enough to make a team...probably the Islanders.
The leafs are the team that seems desperate. Nazem Kadri is not an NHL player. People love to get on Garth snow and his moves as a GM but Brian Burke is a disaster. Kadri, Kessel, Connoly, Komisarek to name a few.

Care to elaborate? Oh and the Phil Kessel trade was pretty bad, but don't lump a fantastic player in with the likes of Komisarek and Connolly.
