Per Bob McKenzie.

No surprise here. I think many saw that coming. I wonder if that means though that Whitney will be back right away.

Decrypting the 2005 NHL CBA: NHL Waivers – The Ultimate Waiver Bible

The NHL CBA was actually prophesied in the 16th century by this old dude

NOTE: There is now a permanent link to this Waiver FAQ in the menu, under “Resources” (2005 NHL CBA Waiver FAQ).

One thing that confuses the heck out of people is a player’s waiver status. It is so confusing that even CBA guru’s for NHL team’s get it wrong from time to time. Case in point of this is a situation that happened before the start of last year in which Rick Olczyk was asked about Gilbert Brule’s waiver status. In fairness, Olczyk had not yet researched the question when asked. But he responded by saying that Brule did not need to clear waivers to be sent down. Several bloggers (including yours truly) and CBA-expert-wannabe’s pointed out that Brule did in fact have to clear waivers. Several panicked at the thought that the Oilers might actually send him down at the start of the year and foolishly place him on waivers (which I think was a bit of a stretch, but still was an interesting case proving how cryptic the CBA is).

Before I sound like a know it all when it comes to the CBA for calling the Brule status right, I can say that I’ve made my share of mistakes too and have had to re-read over many different sections dozens of times to get a slight grasp of a particular section. It’s confusing probably to even the fellows that wrote it, no doubt. At any rate, I’ve done some digging around, and thanks to some guys who have done a bit of ground work such as NHLSCAP, cross-referenced with the CBA and various smart forumers, I figured I’d clear up a few questions/misunderstandings in regards to waiver status. This eventually will be a bit of a waivers resource for you junior GMs out there, and as such I’ll try and update this as required and if anyone has anything to add to it. Soooo.. *breathes deeply*, here goes. Continue reading 'Decrypting the 2005 NHL CBA: NHL Waivers – The Ultimate Waiver Bible'»

Not you... but nice save, Jeff

Not you... but nice save, Jeff

The Oilers have made their goaltending decision, at last…. Jeff Deslauriers has been placed on waivers. I think they made the right choice. I kind of figured that was what happened when Delsauriers was said to be not at practice today. MacIntyre and Whitney also absent.. hmm…….. some sort of deal in the works? Nah, just trying to scare you folks (Whitney is taking a “rest day” – which I’d say he needed). I wonder if a callup will be made though. Jacques will be back in a couple of weeks (apparently), so they could be making room for him, but I’ll suspect that they’ll bring someone up in the meantime. If waivers are no issue, I hope it’s Belle or Reddox.
