Uhhhh, or Corrado?
Great news about 4.5 millionaire weird dude Booth!sagebrush wrote:Not too long ago he was in Kalamazoo of the ECHL. A bit of head scratcher, this is.TDA Rum wrote:Canuck's call up Yann Sauve... are they going to be like San Jose with Brett Burns and make him a forward??
Looks like Sauve replaces Alberts & Booth replaces Hansen, when they play in the swamp.
Yep. The closer we get to the cap before placing someone on LTIR, the more space we can exceed the cap when LTIR takes effect.dbr wrote: I'm a little rusty with this stuff but I've seen others claim that getting as close to the upper limit as possible prior to placing a player on LTIR maximizes the exemption we get once that player is placed on that list. Makes sense..
I don't know the circumstances, but IIRC there is no set rule re: individuals replacing cap space, so you don't have to designate an individual to replace the LTIR player (so Sauve doesn't have to be designated as Burrows' replacement). So if we call up a guy like Sauve now, place Burrows on LTIR, we can then demote Sauve and bring up one or more players because we have that LTIR space established.JelloPuddingPop wrote:I'm just not sure why? With our roster set, why do we need extra LTIR relief? I don't understand the implications of this - as I understand it, when Burrows returns that relief is no longer applicable? Are we making room for more call ups if necessary?
Can anyone enlighten?
