Isn't this the guy from Philly?

Yes.  And he's already under contract in Rochester, so what's going on here?

I guess they're calling him up? 

With some of the transactions lately it feels like they're part of something bigger, a trade perhaps?

Or could it be the bug that has laid a few players low the last couple weeks?

Wow, really? I need to look at the Amerks roster more closely then lol. I hadn't even noticed his name. And yea Eleven, why sign him now? Good question.

Guy we got for Justin Bailey - good minor leaguer with minimal NHL upside.

Id bet this in preparation for selling off guys like Sheary, Vesey and Frolik. Will need some warm bodies.

Could be but Sheary and Vesey are playing as well right now as they have all year

That's one interpretation. If that's the case it means we're not getting bodies back.... or at least not NHL-ready bodies.

Which is why JBott may sell.  It could be that they need to move several players as pieces of a deal for a 2C.

He’s on NHL Waivers today.

I wonder if this to make him a RFA 

So maybe it's a non-hockey, business transaction?

I think any nonELC NHL contract at this point of the season has to clear waivers no?

Isnt this how Calgary nearly lost ROR had the Avs not matched?

We're gonna re-sign those guys to multi year deals and sell Larry and Zemgus

Here is what I found from the CBA

For 20 year old players, playing in 1 professional game will count as the first year of their exemption. 25 year old players who play 1 professional game will only be exempt for the rest of that season.

Players who play in another league at the start of the NHL season have to go through waivers when signed by an NHL team.

The only question I have at this time, is why sign him now. There has to be something going on following noon tomorrow, If or when he clears. I can't see the reason to sign him at all at this time save depth will be needed, but I could be off here. Anyone have anything?

Larsson missing from the morning skate, per Joe Yerdon on Twitter. Any chance these 2 events are connected?

Larsson would be a good acquisition for any team need a defensive center for a playoff run. He's good against Tavares, against McDavid, against Crosby. He can be playoff angry. And.... if coveted.... could get a good rental return.

Raise your hand if you thought that a Taylor Leier thread in February would be labeled "Hot."

I’ve always wanted to see Angry Larry in the playoffs. Of course, I’ve always wanted that to be in blue and gold.

Whoever gets him will get value. I hope Jason gets equal value in return.

Also, Risto/Larsson/futures for Cirelli/bad contract, anyone?

Then it’s a good time to move them.
