Nope there is a total number of years from signing first pro contract or total Pro games played, which ever they reach first.

Christensen is not NHL material. NHL talent, perhaps, but he'll never put it together. He shouldn't and probably won't get claimed and will be Euro bound after his contract his up.

lol at any team to pick up Christensen, he is pretty much worthless as an NHL player. No heart, cannot finish, and as soft as a player can get. Good riddance

He isn't a very good player, but he has very good talent.

They're sharing San Antonio with Phoenix. Belesky, Festerling, Bodie and some others playing in SA.

Correct. Scroll down about a 1/4 page and the chart is there:

Even on the off chance that this happens, you're forgetting what made him redundant in the first place. He's a center. And when a position move was attempted, he couldn't get it done as a winger, indeed all he seemed to do want to be a center again. So what are we going to do with another center?

Right now we have Chris Bourque who is cheaper - indeed, probably better - and more importantly, does what Christensen can't.

So San Antonio is taking in Ducks players this season? Just a side note completely irrelevant but why would they make the Sabres and Ducks share Portland in NHL 10 when in the real world the Ducks and Coyotes are sharing San Antonio?

Also, Canes fans - how's Harrison looked this season? Any thoughts of him getting picked up by someone?

Ahh Kaspar. I doubt anyone plucks him off waivers, he's just not cut out for the NHL. No consistency and just not good enough at any one thing to give him big league value.

I mean, at least when Mike Morris busted as a Sharks 1st rounder it was because of injuries. Kaspar imploded simply because he couldn't hack it.

Nah, they arn't the best. They both excel at beating defensemen 1 on 1, not goalies. That said, we most definitely do not need a one trick pony for shootouts. Kessel as you said is good at them, and Kaberle and Blake are decent. I think we'll be fine with Kessel and Kadri being our main shootout players next season.

Right now, the Pens are using Craig Adams as their third line center. And Chris Bourque hasn't exactly shown that he can get the puck in the net anymore than Christensen. This would be more of a short-term stopgap kind of deal: bring in Christensen while Malkin is out so that he can fill the third-line center role, and when Malkin comes back, Christensen can be waived if he can't get his game back together. It's basically a low-risk move.

Then again, I might just have a bit of a soft spot for the guy, since I remember wondering why Craig Patrick was giving Shane Endicott yet another chance to suck at being an NHL player instead of bringing up Christensen... (I really don't miss those days)

Yes, but Phoenix still runs the show there, meaning most Ducks players there will not get the same amount of playing time that Phoenix prospects will (Which is why Mikkelson was sent to the Toronto Marlies instead of San Antonio).

I can't believe that Atlanta got O'Dell for Christensen.

Nonono, it's much better that we continue to put Stempniak in the shootout...despite the fact that he hasn't buried a breakaway in years.

Haggy and Grabovski aren't that great anyway, but our issues so far have been goaltending and Wilson being an idiot.

I guess because Portland was the Ducks AHL team until the end of the 07-08 season?

AHL teams are professional hockey teams - it's primarily a development league, but they're going to ice and coach the best team they can, regardless of who the prospects or young players belong to.

Yeah, for how long? 2 weeks when Malkin comes back. Exactly. Dear Lord.

That just makes zero sense. A waiver claim for two weeks work? Think about it for more than a nanosecond.

HA! Funny because that is what i was thinking. I still have a major man-crush on Crusher. And for the few games he was on 87's wing, he looked decent. IDK if I would rather have EC on the line, with his amazingly fast-but goalie chest seeking wrister, or would I rather stick with Old Man River (Billy geurin).

Dude, I hear you, I still wish this was some sort of paralell universe where Crusher was a legit sniper instead of.... well...pillow soft Erik Christensen with his patented 12 second wind-up on a shinpad seeking scud missile. He can put it together if Ray Shero foots the bill for a Tony Robbins self help seminar and a Prozac regiment. EC's problem has always been NO CONFIDENCE, no swagger. His problems are in his head.

Because the game was made before Anaheim decided where they were going to send their players.

Also, Portland has a lot of rookies this season so they were probably missing some players and they needed to add the Ducks' players to make a complete roster.


By the way, the Ducks players were sent to several teams

Manitoba
Matt McCue
Brian Salcido

Toronto
Brennan Evans
Brendan Mikkelson

San Antonio
Matt Beleskey
Mark Mitera
Troy Bodie
Ryan Donnally
Brett Festerling

Bakersfield ECHL
Dan Sexton
John De Gray
Justin Pogge
Timo Pielmeier
Shawn Weller
Maxime Macenauer
Eric Regan
Stu Bickel
MacGregor Sharp
Logan MacMillan

Far
J.P Levasseur Laredo CHL
Bobby Bolt Muskegon IHL
