Let's say he gets picked up and we are responsible for approx. $425,000? How is it applied to cap? Is it all this year or spread out over two?

All this year, I believe. I think it only gets spread out over multiple years if we were to buy him out.

Buy-outs and waivers are only extended multiple years if the contract had multiple years left on it.

Ok. I don't care then. They can do what they can for Rivet. Still have doubts he'll be picked up. He was the #8 guy on a Buffalo team not exactly known for D. I guess the Habs are out after Sopel.

While we're "not known for D", the reason why Rivet doesn't play here doesn't apply to some other teams.

We have 4 vets or clearly better players that will be in the lineup when they're healthy over Rivet (Myers/Leopold/Morisonne/Montador) and 3 healthy kids who we need to figure out (Weber/Sekera/Butler).

Not every team has that luxury. Clearly anyone who picks up Rivet will have a need for a body on D. Someone depeleted with injuries or with a 5/6 that simply can't cut it at the NHL level.

My crystal ball isn't even plugged in and I can tell you how this will play out.

1. Rivet will be claimed on re-entry. Everyone happy.

2. Darcy makes a couple more moves in the next week which position the team for the future, and pay some immediate rewards as well...

3. ...by helping the Sabres go on a 7-0-0 run on their upcoming road trip.

4. Now buoyed with joy, and fueled daily with copious amounts of the newly introduced sports drink "Pegulade" (which has the viscosity and freezing point of fluids injected into hydrofracking wells, but is colored like the green ink on printed money, and tastes like fine wine)...

5. the Sabres surge to 7th and qualify for the playoffs...

6. then sweep the Lignthing in 4 games, and beat the Flyers in 6...

7. where they then face the Pens for the ECF Prince of Wales trophy.

8. A rash of injuries on the blue-line decimates the team, especially on the right side. They make it to game 7 but are deep on the call-up list.

9. Where in OT, on a PP, Jason Pommiville is on the right point, and Daniel Alfredsson, acquired by PIT at the deadline, swoops around him to score an OT shortie series winner.

you heard it here first...

Oh, come on. Alex Biega in a playoff series can't be THAT bad, can it?

Nope, pre-Funk era. I believe Campbell and Lydman rounded out the top six (posted without Googling).

It's highly unlikely. The time table is too tight and Rivet has too much to lose. The Sabres and Rivet would have to both agree to terminate the contract and submit the paperwork for league approval. Another team would have to sign him before the trade deadline for him to be eligible for the playoffs. Termination would also end Rivet's rights and medical benefits provided under a standard player contract.

As expected, the Buffalo Sabres put defenseman Craig Rivet on re-entry waivers Friday. There's a good chance he'll be claimed because a team would have to pay only half of his remaining salary. (CapGeek says his remaining cap hit for a claiming team would be $404,570 this season.) A handful of teams told me, on the condition that I not name them, that they were considering claiming him. We'll find out at noon ET Saturday.

what makes you say that? even if a claim is put in an hour after he's put on waivers, doesn't the league have to wait the full 24 hours before announcing?

This guy is reporting that 3 teams have put in a claim on Rivet.



Have to wait another 10 min anyways before they can announce anything.
