Who the heck is Trevor Smith?

Postby Mongoose87 on Fri Mar 22, 2013 2:43 pm

Is this purely for depth, or will the guy contribute?

My guess is:

A. Trade is coming

B. One of the forwards is out tonight and they want extra depth.

Smith is a nice little scorer at the lower levels. Has some NHL games under is belt with Tampa, I believe.

Who are they pulling back than? We already have our 3 scratches. Or can you retroactively put someone on long term IR... Letang?
Cooke is on the Injury report.

Geno is listed as being on IR on the Pens website...but that's not always up to date.

i'd say it is, as earlier today, he was NOT listed as being on IR.

Not long-term IR, that's a salary cap thing. Just regular injured reserve. Players on IR must remain on it for 7 days before they can be activated.

Smith, a farm hand, is a just-in-case guy that can play on the lower lines in case of an injury.

Retroactive IR still has to be one of the most BS things in sports. They should force you to either take the risk of the 1 week IR or not.

Really? That's one of the biggest issues in sports today? The difference of 24-72 hours or so of being on pseudo-IR... :?:

If it wasn't retroactive, you're increasing the chances that a guy like Malkin is healthy and sitting in favor of some scrub.

With the Islanders and Flyers games coming up, do you see DB keeping them off the active roster for a reason? I know in the playoffs you're gonna have to be able to bang but why bother forcing Malkin and Letang to battle against those two teams. They are guaranteed to be physical.

Hmm?

If IR wasn't retroactive, teams have more chance of having to keep a good player in the press box, when healthy, because they needed the roster spot when they were out.
