Neither? I can't remember exactly what the number was in the old CBA, nor do I know if it's the same number in the new one.


Update: It's a static date - November 1. I'm sure they must have some other date set for this season.

Well the Isles have now claimed enough guys off wavers to ice a roster. They also picked up Strait. So there's that.

Islanders with a higher claim priority than the Flyers, if the Flyers actually put a claim in...

I'm not saddened by the news. Would've been great for depth but a piece we can replace. So be it

Good luck to Strait. Maybe he can get some decent ice time. Wonder if Visnovsky showed up if they would have claimed him?

Real drafting and depth issues if you have to pick 4-5 guys off waivers to fill a 23 man roster. I know financials play a part in it, but it's pathetic.

Just officially suspended him today per NYI transactions.

I wonder if they are welcoming him back? I drafted him in fantasy in hopes he would. The dude is still a beast. :thumb:

Gotta laugh though, they've claimed like 6 people off of waivers since waivers opened up.

So what's the over/under on the number of times Steiggy confuses Strait and Streit when we play the Isles?

I'm just going to leave this here.

Spoiler:
Strait Up - To the tune of "Straight Up" by Paula Abdul.



Lost to a team
in 14th place, way to go. :scared:
If you are all that you seem
Then Straitsy, you're moving to The Show

Played like a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my team caught
losing eight to four
How about some actual defense--please

Strait up, now tell me
Do you really want to stay at home whenever oh oh oh
Or are we caught in run and gun?
Strait up, now tell me
Is it gonna be you on D forever oh oh oh
or until game eighty-one?

(Le)Tang's standing still
Waiting for pass...to get through
I keep getting chills
When I think Paul Martin is there too

Played like a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my team caught
losing eight to four
How about some actual defense--please

Strait up, now tell me
Do you really want to stay at home whenever oh oh oh
Or are we caught in run and gun?
Strait up, now tell me
Is it gonna be you on D forever oh oh oh
or until game eighty-one?

Bylsma's so hard to read
Strategies are weak
LGP gets tension.
Bet his ego's playing games
Pens just have to say--bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye

Do do you play D
Do do you love D (Straitsy)
Do do you play D
Do do you love D (Tell me Straitsy)

Played like a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my team caught
losing eight to four
Are you stay at home for me
Or is the neutral zone a mystery--Brooks
I don't mean to make demands
But your play and that loss go hand in hand
How about some actual defense--please

Strait up, now tell me...

Strait up, now tell me
Do you really want to stay at home whenever oh oh oh
Or are we caught in run and gun?
Strait up, now tell me
Is it gonna be you on D forever oh oh oh
or until game eighty-one?

I think I guy in his position would be happy to be on a club he could crack the lineup with regularity. Its not like a Rick Nash in Columbus situation or anything
