Let's take Callahan, who right now is DTD and out for a month. Let's assume in the worst case scenario, Yahoo! leaves him listed as DTD for a week after his first return to action (I must say that I challenge anyone who says they keep tabs on how quickly Yahoo! removes players from DTD - what reason has there ever been for people to keep track of something like that?).
I stopped reading here. I assume i'm not outside the norm in that I check my lineup at least once per day.
Upon reading further, no. You're going to play Callahan on Monday, move him back to IR and pick someone else up that plays on tuesday and wednesday, then drop them and move Callahan back off the IR.
The scenario that will play out perpetually throughout the season is that someone is day-to-day and moved onto ir for a roster player for each day that they("injured" player) aren't playing a game. Its a way to get free starts and you don't losegames from your guy at all.
The New Jersey Devils believe that Patrik Elias, Stephen Gionta and Bryce Salvador will all be good to go for the team's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday.
Advice: Of course, things kind of things can change, especially with a day between the announcement and the actual contest. Elias has nice potential in the "Czech connection" alongside Jaromir Jagr while the other two players are more marginal in fantasy terms.
Elias is day-to-day. If he were on my roster(he's on Pitts', my opponent's roster) i'd be picking someone up for today and moving Elias over to the IR+. It took me two teams to find an example of an opportunity to abuse this. My team, and Pitts' team.
