The deadline for teams putting in a claim on a waived player is Monday, Noon ET. Should a player clear waivers, his team has the option of assigning him to its American Hockey League affiliate and freeing up salary.
Vladimir Mihalik wouldn't be a bad pick-up.

So I saw that Andre Benoit was listed to play tomorrow's game, now that he's on waivers who takes his spot? Or does he still play if he clears? I hoping Cowen takes his spot..

On the subject of goalies on waivers, did Al Montoya ever go from prospect to suspect in a hurry. He was considered to be a "goalie of the future" not too many years ago.

Just because they are on waivers does not make them "not eligible" to play in the NHL. They can clear waivers and still play in the NHL. All it means is that if they clear they can be sent down without clearing waivers again. Lots of players are put on waivers at the trade deadline and never go anywhere. The team could be testing the trade market for that player or they could be preparing to clear space just in case they acquire a player. At this time of year though, it's usually to send a player down.

Yeah, he was stuck in Hartford for the longest time before the Rangers traded him to Phoenix. It would of been tough for him to crack a spot on the Rangers with Lundqvist at helm.

Look at post #25. Look up Locke's, Keller's and Bass' respective ages and number of NHL games played by each. Then look at post #25 again. That should answer your question.

Not sure why we're waving either one of them. Brodeur showed good game last season, Benoit's been decent in the preseason

Leaf fan coming in peace, just wondering why they waived Brodeur!? I really liked the guy and what he showed last year, I really want to see more of what he's capable of. Hopefully he gets a shot somewhere else.

Benoit is a little surprising, specially since he was listed as playing tomorrow night against Buffalo. http://senators.nhl.com/club/news.ht...d=DL|OTT|home/

i'll be the source on that, i calculated everyone's waiver eligibility a while back. Pretty sure locke needs to as well.


iirc, Locke and Brodeur are the only guys that will earn enough money in the AHL to be exempt from recall waivers though.

It's like you didn't even read the rest of this thread.

It sounds like a bunch of fans need to bone up on what "waivers" means. As a hint, in the preseason, it is almost certainly a precursor to a team having to send a player to the minors. The vast majority of "veterans" (or anyone not currently on their ELC anymore) need to clear waivers before being assigned to their AHL team.

Additionally, 99% of the guys being put on waivers this time of the year go unclaimed because most teams have their rosters set and aren't interested in bringing some other team's minor league player on the squad and guaranteeing them an NHL job.

You're right but I think ppl that aren't familiar w/ the whole waiver issue is perhaps the timing of Redden getting waived that's caused some confusion..

The system works exactly the same in both cases but in Redden's case he was let go to an extent of not coming back, where as these other moves are players sent down to minors as planned but contract's play in the way, so goes the scenario of confusion imo..

Very rarely does a player get picked up before the season begins via waivers, but it has happened..wasn't it Steve Martins, as well as another d-man few yrs back??

Well, in regards to Redden, he was put on waivers for the exact same purpose as Brodeur and Benoit: to go to the AHL. Waivers do not release a player. If another team doesn't claim the player, the player is still under contract to his team. They just might be able to move him to their AHL team. The contract remains though.

Damnit, now Mike Leighton is hurt. Who's going to Lehner's back-up when the Flyer's claim Brodeur to be their starting goalie?

OK, maybe an Ottawa fan shouldn't be making fun of anyone elses goaltending situation. I'll probably be sreaming for Brodeur come mid-Nov.

He's on an AHL contract so I would assume he would not have to clear waivers but I'm not 100% certain.

To answer your faceteous question seriously, Barry Brust is actually going to be a good option should Brodeur or Lehner falter in Bingo. He's an established AHL goalie who's played more games than Brodeur has at the NHL level.
