The smart player management continues... About Bob

According to a Seravalli article on Philly.com, Bob has lost his waiver exemption, due to playing in game 3 vs Boston:

So, the next gut reaction for most, would be to send Bobrovsky to the AHL to continue his development. Unfortunately, the Flyers are stuck in that regard.

Not only would Leighton likely be stashed in Adirondack to keep his salary off the cap, but Bobrovsky – for the first time in his career – will be susceptible to waivers.

According to Article 13.4 of the NHL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, Bobrovsky lost his waiver exemption – even though he is still on his entry-level deal – by playing in his 60th career game. The number in the CBA says it includes playoff and regular season games. Coincidentally, Bobrovsky played his 60th career game in Game 3 against Boston.

If the above is true, Bobrovsky would undoubtedly be plucked off waivers.

It's kind of upsetting to me that Holmgren seems again to have unknowingly painted himself into a corner, salary-wise, if he expects to sign Breezy unless Ilya will sign a front-loaded long-term contract at, say, $28-32 million over about 8 years.   Otherwise, Bob is going to get plucked off waivers if sent to Adirondack, and otherwise he's about a $1.75 million backup.
