NHL News: NHL Throwing a Twist to Teams When Submitting Rosters … Big List of Players On Waivers
NHL throwing a bit of roster twist to teams last minute? A big list of players who were placed on waivers today.
NHL throwing a twist to teams?

Frank Seravalli: (thread) “I’m told the #NHL has informed teams that when submitting Opening Night rosters by Tues. at 5pm ET, any changes made Wed. (for LTIR purposes) will count as if they were originally submitted on Tuesday. This is an interesting wrinkle for teams, because …

The league feels that teams were not accurately reflecting their Opening Night rosters in their original submission and were “undermining” or “circumventing” the idea of it with changes shortly thereafter.

Teams don’t want to operate in LTIR all season, so they like to get as close to the cap as possible for Day 1 (Tuesday) and THEN add their players to LTIR on Day 2 (Wednesday) to maximize the benefit.

It’s interesting this year because a number of the teams that play on Wed. plan to be cap compliant using LTIR: Tampa Bay, St. Louis, Vancouver, Edmonton and Chicago. This may force an opening night roster that team/coach may not have planned – at least for the first day.”
