      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators 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?
