I thought Schlemko was playing pretty well up here. I guess Tippett wants a more veteran presence maybe?

If Sauer was coming back in the next week or two, probably doesn't make this move. Was hearing Sauer not back until just before or just after the Olympic break. Think this makes that official.

Schlemko has looked overexposed the past few weeks.

I honestly can't wait until Sauer comes back and we get to see the completely healthy defense which we have yet to see.

When did we get Anders Eriksson signed to a contract, or is this a sign and tryout? I must have missed the signing over the summer if it's the same Eriksson I think it is (drafted by Detroit, traded to CHI for Chelios?).

I laugh at the people who actually think Schlemko was good. He was HORRIBLE! Cant clear pucks. He doesnt belong in the NHL. NEXT.

The same one.

He was on a PTO in San Antonio earlier, but I don't recall him ever being signed to an actual NHL contract. But, I guess it happened at some point because it looks like he's been called up.

Meh. What evs. Lepisto hasn't looked great lately, either. A few sub-par performances in the last handful of games, in my opinion.

Indeed. Sauer can't come back soon enough.

Yes I also agree on that, but actually I liked the skillset that Schlemko brought to the table more than what Lepisto offered. Schlemko paired with Yandle looked better over the first 5-6 games than Yandle-Lepisto which started the season.
But still interesting that Schlemko got reassigned, he had more icetime a better +/- and more Points over the last weeks compared to Lepisto.

NHL transaction wire doesn't show a report for Schlemko being reassigned, though the AHL transaction report does.

Is it possible they didn't get the assignment filed before the holiday roster freeze went into effect at midnight Dec 19th? Guess we'll find out soon enough.

Capgeek showing Eriksson signed two-way deal for $600,000 ($100,000 AHL salary). Shows Schlemko demoted Dec. 20, Eriksson called up same day. Perhaps announcement lagged filing of the paperwork?

Schlemko is showing on Rampage roster as of this AM, Eriksson is not. Eriksson not listed on Coyotes website roster as of this AM, but is showing on the Capgeek roster and his cap hit has been applied.

The press release is kinda weird:

http://coyotes.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=510715

Quote:
Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced that the Coyotes have re-assigned defenseman David Schlemko to their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, retroactive to Dec. 19.
I know you can retroactively put a player on IR, but I didn't know you could retroactively reassign a player. Hopefully they just used the wrong word "retroactive" rather than something like "effective as of".

When the league owns the team they can do what they want.

And yes, I'm sure the PA would have an issue if it doesn't comform to the proper protocols.

Things like this is why Schlemko was re-assigned (ANA game on 12/19).


Goal #1 - He's the player that ends up BEHIND Bryz as the giftwrapped goal was scored:

http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...9&event=ANA212

Goal #2 - Schlemko (at the start of the video) is the player that was lagging way way behind the play because he was tied up with another player.

http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...9&event=ANA431


That's just not very good hockey smarts.

You all want to blame Jovo for two stupid penalties in this game that lead to goals? Schlemko is responsible for two as well.

What's Lepisto's contract situation? He has more NHL games under his belt, so may be subject to waivers if/when we were to recall him?

Both youngsters were starting to breakdown. Eriksson brings a veteran presence. I thought he was a slower skater than he looked last night, but the only time I really noticed him was when he turned the puck over in our end late in the game and was forced to take a hooking penalty... Only noticing one gaffe is an upgrade on the other two!

Lepisto isn't subject to waivers but he is on a one way contract and would be paid his full salary no matter where he plays. They might as well have him make his 500k in the NHL as opposed to the AHL.

Lepisto isn't subject to waivers yet, but he will be soon when he plays his 60th career NHL game. He's currently at 46 games with 32 of them coming this season.

I'd rather have him getting minutes in the AHL than sitting in the press box in the NHL.

I would also, but the league, running a bankrupt team with the ownership situation still not resolved would probably beg to differ.

I can't imagine why the league would give a crap who goes where. It's not like the team budget is affected one bit. If a reassignment helps the team win, it can also drive up attendance and buyer interest. At this point, that's all Bettman should care about.
