The best of the cheapest in Utica? I guess Dalpe really was waived then.

Sauve actually has the most expensive contract of anyone on the Coments except for Eriksson and Cannata.

I am guessing this move has something to do with putting us over the cap ceiling so we can start using LTIR (ie. he is being called up as a "replacement player"); right now Capgeek has us at just $372,805 in available space without Sauve.

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..

Yup just some Gilman magic.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

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.

So if we're $1M under the cap when we put Player X making $2M on LTIR, we only get to exceed the cap by $1M. But if we're only 100K under the cap, we can exceed it by $1.9M. Or something like that...

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 I don't understand the implications of this - as I understand it, when Burrows returns that relief is no longer applicable?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?

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.

If we have $300K in cap space today, bringing up Corrado ($591K) only gets us $291K of LTIR space. Bringing up Sauve ($708K) gives us $408K. Not sure why it matter so much, because that couple-hundred K probably won't get us a warm body at this point in the season.

Again, I could be wrong in all this, but it might be what Gilman is doing...

And just like that, Sauve has been sent down. Pelletier and Archibald have been called up. It would be Archibald's first NHL game if he played tomorrow.

Well at least we have some forwards to play. Wonder if they rush Burrows back.

Based upon Burrows' interview yesterday, I get the sense he'll be playing tonight.

For undrafted Archibald, that is pretty neat!

...especially as some of his more heralded peers from the first round of his draft (2008) struggle:

Kyle Beach
Zach Boychuk
Joe Colborne
Anton Gustafsson
Greg Nemisz
Daulton Leveille

When will u cats finally stick a fork in David Booth? He's done like dinner

Even the minor league call ups are playing better than him. Get rid if that 4.5 million not well spent

Cool story. When we waive and demote him, what will that $925K get us?

Pelletier has been sent back down, presumably because Burrows is ready to go tonight.
