Do they really need to?

Can they claim one even at this 25 special roster limit?

Penny, the special roster limit is actually 24, not 25. The Penguins took 25 players to Sweden, but still must make one more cut before Saturday. My guess is they took an extra player for precautionary purposes. By cutting someone in Sweden, they can have an extra player not technically on the roster, but much closer in proximity than Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in case there is an injury.

As far as waiver claims, I don't even know where to start when predicting. I wouldn't be surprised if several Pens were claimed, though I think Stone is the most likely candidate. I'd bet Richmond sneaks through. I also have my doubts the Penguins claim anyone -- unless a faceoff specialist becomes available for the fourth line.

The Pens can claim someone, however they must make room immediately on the roster for him. I might be wrong on this, but we might even be able to claim someone and then send him straight to the minors (thus exposing that player to waivers again). I am pretty sure this is how Beech ended up here last year. I think Washington claimed him from hmmm.... the Canucks maybe? and immediately sent him to the minors and the Pens then claimed him.

Thanks about the extra person for Euro explanation.
With all the talk being about building chemistry, I just don't think the pens will be involved in picking
up players while off-Continent.

I don't see the Pens picking anyone... they already have a pretty full roster. If they were looking to pick up a D on waivers, why did they even risk losing Richmond when they just could have kept him? Going the other way, definitely possible on Stone and Richmond because neither were readily available for teams to sign this summer like a guy like Beech was. There was some speculation that Beech might go to Europe rather than report to WBS.

Okay, it's official

None of the 11 Penguins were claimed

10 of the 11 reported to camp. Kris Beech did not.

Will be interesting to see if Beech ends up showing up. I'd get the feeling he isn't in WBS yet because he was on waivers, and he's used to not clearing. I guess his options now are Europe, or head here to WBS now and play out the string and see what happens.

I hope not, but this could be a fun, injury-plagued year that requires loads of call-ups. Poo-ey feeling, but real, nonetheless. KB might see action up here sooner rather than later.

KB might not make it up.. Correct me if I'm wrong, but he's one of the players sent down who would have to clear reentry waivers to come back?

When a team has injuries, oftentimes they are granted the use of an "emergency recall" which allows the team to promote a waiver-eligible player from going through re-entry waivers until the injured player returns. It's how Conklin made it up last year.

Right. But he was a technical example.

Well, yeah... But 1 part KB + 1 part Lupaschuk = 1 Jagr, right? :wink:

Don't forget one part Sivek. That's what really completes the equation, because without him, there's nothing.
