In response to RickyHussle's comment:
What is the process of revoking injury waiver and bringing him back up in the more traditional way? Can his injury waiver be transferred from Krejci to McQuaid. Can we pretend that the callup was due to Savard's 'injury'? Did Kalman go in detail? Do you have a link if he did?
I could be missing something, but my reading of the CBA would allow it to be more generous than that.
(i) A player on loan to a Club of any
league affiliated with the League may be recalled from such loan
under emergency conditions at any time for the duration of the
emergency only following which he must be returned promptly to
the club from which he was recalled.
(ii) Emergency conditions shall be
established when the playing strength of the loaning Club, by
reason of incapacitating injury or illness or by League
suspension to its players is reduced below the level of two (2)
goalkeepers, six (6) defensemen and twelve (12) forwards. Proof
of the existence of the emergency conditions including the
incapacity shall be furnished to the Commissioner of the League
upon request made by him.
(b) (i) A Club recalling a Player from a minor
league club, under emergency conditions, must specify on the
transfer form the name of the injured, ill or suspended Player
whom the Player on emergency recall is replacing.
(ii) When an emergency condition
terminates, the Club must submit a transfer form indicating
whether the Player's status has converted to regular recall or
is assigned to his minor league club.
So as I'm reading it, as long as you are still under a 20 man roster and the specified unavailable player remains unavailable, you can keep your emergency recall player up, regardless of how much time you have had since he first came up to arrange a proper AHL callup.
