Well, looks like we got another back up plan.

Interesting... Perhaps we may see him with the Panthers if either Theodore or Markstrom is injured at some point.

This is a pretty interesting situation. I mean, what exactly does it say?

Theodore and Clemmensen are the supposed NHL duo once healthy, so what does leave for San Antonio? Legace, Markstrom, and Plante.

They think Plante will head to the ECHL?
Is Tallon and Co. maybe looking to move Clemmensen? Guess that depends on how well Markstrom does/how bad Theo struggles?

Something to keep an eye on, imo.

This is really much ado about nothing...with Markstrom in the NHL, we needed someone else on the farm with Plante. Once Clemmensen returns and Markstrom is sent back down, then they'll release Legace from his PTO most likely (and his deal is essentially just a tryout contract so no guarantees).

Ah, OK, thanks. Still, would love for Markstrom to own the position and give the coaches no choice but to keep him up.

This is my thinking. I believe that Clemmer getting injured is a blessing in disguise.

I fully expect Markstrom to step up and win the starting job. It could very well turn this entire season around. It's about time this team had something special to cheer for.

Talking in terms like the season is already down the toilet. Oh, the life of being a Panthers fan

So was Legace signed to a tryout contract or is he going to play for San Antonio for the year?

He was signed to a PTO, and I found some further details:


Quote:
PTO = Professional try-out contract

This is an animal found only in the AHL. PTO's are for 25 games, but the player can be released before that. He can also be signed to a second PTO, but after two PTO's he either becomes a free agent or is signed to a SPC - standard players' contract (also just called an "AHL contract").

Quote:
Any player on an AHL SPC, PTO or ATO must be released from his contract before he can sign in the NHL. Occasionally you'll hear people say an NHL team "picked up his contract," but he's really signing a different kind of contract, it's not directly transferable. The player is not eligible to play in the NHL on a PTO or even a SPC. To play in the NHL you must be signed to an NHL contract, which are full-year, guaranteed contracts (with exceptions for goaltenders in emergencies and players sent back to junior. There is also a one-game ATO in the NHL which is extremely rare, but used for players coming out of college sometimes. See Justin Abdelkader of Detroit).

So a way to think about it is that the PTO is sort of an intermediate step between the rigidity of NHL or standard AHL contracts, and the complete job insecurity of ECHL contracts, which can be terminated at any time (though the player does first go through waivers).

On a related topic, NHL teams cannot "sign players to an AHL contract." This wording is often used by teams who own their AHL affiliate (like Edmonton), but really what is happening is that they are directing the AHL team to sign the player to an AHL contract. It just sounds better to say they did it. Unless you see an official transaction that says the NHL team signed the player, be skeptical.

Man why didn't the Panthers just sign Turco. Sure he sucks, but common Manny Lagace. Oh boy.

It's an AHL PTO, not an NHL contract.

You realize Legace is strictly for the Rampage right? In the ahl he's a top goalie.
