Love this signing.

Since this doesn't kick in til after this season, does this void his waiver exemption for this season? Cause otherwise, by my count, they have 9 defenseman on one-way deals. And Vaak is ready to play. Moore being on LTIR for half the season will help, but someone's gotta go. Maybe 2 someones.

I think to open the year, Vaakanainen starts in Providence - if he blows them away at camp, my assumption is they have a deal in place to move Miller and Clifton / Kampfer become D 7-8

Chara - McAvoy
Krug - Carlo
Grzelcyk - Clifton
Miller / Kampfer
Moore on LTIR

Related - is Chara going to be ready to start the year? I wouldn't mind him being de-facto LTIR'd til January or something

edit: to answer the initial question, Clifton is still 2-way for this year and is not subject to waivers IIRC

If he comes in healthy, I think Miller could be a training camp trade a la McQuaid.

Love the Clifton signing. Good value there.

Sweeney is really good. Granted, most of the work is done in finding a guy like this, but also in recognizing that he's going to be eager to lock in some future earnings as someone who came upon a role through a less traditional path.

In terms of Vaak, I think he spends a good bit of time in Providence next he. He struggled badly down the stretch last season and needs to get better

I hope they can keep Miller - last year's finals showed that when you face a team that plays a hard game, you need some ability to push back.
