Yes. He was on the reserve list before the trade deadline. Provided we did not expend all our non-emergency call-ups (4) on AHL resources prior.

Unless Robertson was on a PTO w/ the Marlies, I don't think he'd count against the non-emergency call-ups. Once a player's season is over with their non-NHL team, they're no longer bound by the 4 call-up limit.

O rly... He'd be PTO'd on the Leafs then and not a 'call-up' right?

No, he'd be a call-up, just not an AHL call-up. Can't play for the NHL team on a PTO.

Oh right. He has an ELC. What else can I continue to say that is wrong.

Articles like this bug me. Name the players or this just sounds like fiction!

For the record, the guy who took a #2 on his girlfriends car was Kevin Hayes.

I'm curious about the guy who went to team video analysis meetings in the nude.

Those are basically my guesses too. Kivihalme and Brooks get the nod for me.

Johnsson is supposedly on pace to be recuperated by August, but that's without getting back up to speed, so I'm pretty sure he's a no-go.

We should bring David Ayres too.

WAIT WHERE'S KORSHKOV

Looks like the boards got a new twitter plugin?
Edit: Twitter modified their embed; it kind of looks ass.

Especially with Johnsson done for the (extended) year. Now if he gets COVID from this, considering his medical history, I will be suuuuuper pissed.

I still can't believe how bad his injury was. It seemed innocuous to me.

Would Nick have been eligible for call up under normal circumstances if his OHL season came to an end before the playoffs?

Yes. He was on the reserve list before the trade deadline. Provided we did not expend all our non-emergency call-ups (4) on AHL resources prior.

Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: Coronavirus

You know, over in the thread about the NHL's return someone made the case that no reasonable person could ever be surprised by people who were primarily driven by a profit-motive caring more for that profit than for health and safety.

So, you know, it is a bit strange to see so many headlines in the newspaper about just how shocked, shocked, our Premier is that people running care homes for the elderly in the interest of making money cut corners and jeopardized safety in the interest of their own profitability.

It's almost like the market-based economy doesn't handle important social dynamics well. Whoda thunk it?

You mean the same premier who cut funding to LTC inspections and public health and education and support for children with special needs?

As a hockey fan, I like hockey. As a human who has a basic grasp of what a global pandemic entails, this is a foolish venture.

The plan is to test people frequently; okay but there's a lag between test application and test result wherein any affected person is still interacting with others. The plan also asks that players/staff self-report when feeling ill. HAHAHAHAhockey. The plan is forcing players to abandon their families for a couple of months (unpaid because playoffs, baby) during a global pandemic to congregate 1000s of people from all over the world at this point in a city that did not have too much of a problem before but will now be stressed to accommodate.

How will it actually help the economy if players and staff are not to leave their set routes and premises? At best, the hotel and transportation and whoever is catering the foodstuffs gets a bump back to almost normal while incurring significantly greater risk than before.

The reason other countries have bounced back (South Korea, Taiwan) is because they invested in infrastructure after SARS and take testing, tracing, and quarantine enforcement seriously. We cannot possibly say the same about Canada or the US.
