Mike Stone? He's still waiver exempt. He can play in Portland or Phoenix, which is why there hasn't been as much pressure to make a move. Stone, Gormley and Rundblad are all waiver exempt still.

Pirates open for business despite threat of NHL lockout
By Chris Roy Published: 14th September 2012

Quote:
The National Hockey League, including the Phoenix Coyotes, may not begin the season on time due to a potential lockout with the NHL Players Association, but for their minor league team, the Portland Pirates, and the rest of the American Hockey League, its business as usual.

Wouldn't he need to be assigned before the work stoppage goes into effect?

No, he doesn't need waivers so he can be sent down at any point. In fact, anyone can be assigned after the lockout or even placed on waivers. They just wouldn't be exempt from re-entry waivers when the lockout ended.

EDIT: I stand corrected... Spoke with Treliving this evening. All players who needed to be placed on waivers had to be placed on waivers by 5pm today. After that, the only way a player who needed waivers can be assigned to the AHL is if they finished the year in the AHL, or were on an AHL team's Clear Day list. They would be signed to an AHL contract.

Players that don't need waivers or clear waivers don't have to be assigned until 5pm tomorrow.

Stone will be part of a group of players that will be assigned to Portland tomorrow.

Lockout or not I was looking forward to the Pirates season.

Assuming the season IS locked out, who else will we be seeing in the AHL?

Could the Pirates defense include Summers, Stone, OEL, Gormley, Rundblad, and Goncharov/Brodeur? Don't know if OEL is waiver exempt or not, but Id want him playing somewhere to continue to grow this year.

Holy crap I didn't even consider the AHL defence. OEL might go to the second flight in Sweden but if he stays what'll it be?

OEL-Summers
Rundblad-Gormley
Stone-Goncharov
Brodeur

That's a dangerous blueline. I mean, imagine OEL and Rundblad pairing up on the PP1.

He said he'll play in the AHL if the Coyotes want him to.

I'm afraid that defense could hurt our young goalies' development. They might not get any shots to work with

Rundblad is on the team. There will be a few 2 on 1's.

That's true. Rundblad certainly creates enough action, in both ends.

Guys like Eberle and Nugent Hopkins have now been assigned to the AHL, there will be plenty enough talent on all rosters to ensure the goalies still get enough work.

Fans of the AHL teams are the big winners if there is an extened lockout.

Do Pirates games ever get streamed?

Would be interesting to see all the young D-corpmen out there.

Here's an update from #Pirates practice: The D-pairings were Brodeur-Stone; Louis-OEL; Summers-Goncharov & Gormley-Rundblad. Black won the team scrimmage, 5-2.... Shinnimin had two goals for the Black team. Chris Brown had both goals for the White squad. The Pirates have released Tony Lucia back to the Gwinnett Gladiators (@gwtgladiators) of the #ECHL. There are still 30 players (4G, 9D, 17F) left in camp.

Just walk in... It's free to the public. The game is scheduled to begin around 12:30pm despite what's been published.

For all you Pirates fans...what should be expect to see in the game against UNB in terms of the line-up? Are any of the top guys expected to play or will it be used as an opportunity to see some of the guys battling for spots? Thanks.

I would expect all 13-first-year players to play in the game. It's going to be a game for the bubble players to get a really good look because cuts will be afterward.

Potential lineup:

Goal:
Domingue
Lee

Defense:
Brodeur-Gormley
Louis-Rundblad
Goncharov-Weller

Forward lines:
Arnold-Shinnimin-Brown
Bloodoff-Szwarz-Lane
Dziurzynski-Martinook-Hextall
Kessy-Villemaire-Rechlicz

That's a rough guess based on practice, but its an idea of what to expect.

If that line stays together I'll be interested to hear how it works out. I'm not sure I see it meshing, but it could have an interesting dynamic if it does.

Hello all, I look forward to following the Portland Pirates this year as the lack of the NHL has forced me to find alternatives. I also have a good friend who is vying for a spot on the team, and naturally I'm inclined to follow his progress to the best of my abilities. Obviously it looks as though the MHJ provides an excellent amount of Pirates news and articles, however I was wondering if there were also other outlets that would provide me with even more hockey news? Some particular pieces of information I'm looking to obtain include the rosters for the scrimmage teams, as well as the roster for the upcoming UNB - Pirates contest (I assume the roster has yet to be announced, would my best source for that information be the MHJ?). It's kind of unfortunate that the Pirates website doesn't provide that much news from the training camp, but as my name suggests, c'est la vie!

Thanks
