      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Curiosity about waivers

17 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, Ive been watching hockey a long time but I wont say Im a hardcore hockey fan. Im not really sure how waivers works as far as picking up a player. This, of course, has to do with Sestito being picked up and losing Volpatti. So I heard Chicago was in the bidding to get Sestito as well. So is the reason we get him because we are lower in the standings? How does that work?

As an answer...

It is based on the standings. In reverse order you get priority in a waiver claim.

So in your example, if both we and Chicago put in a claim, we get the player.

The minor complications to the rules are that if you have claimed a player off waivers, you move to the bottom of the list. So right now we have last claim out of any team in the league because we just picked up a player.

I believe there is also a rule that if you had a player taken from you off waivers, and they get waived again... you get first crack at them. I am not 100% sure on that one though.

You seem to know alot about waivers, so I have a question. If a player is claimed off waivers does he have to stay on the active roster for the remainder of the season or can he be reasigned to the minor league team?
