Finley will be on this team for the right now, too. The hometown paper of the Rochester Americans, where Finley was playing, seems to think that he'll have to be on the Islanders roster for at least 30 days.
[sny-box color=E6F1FF]Assuming this particular clause of the waiver rule did not change in the new CBA, I believe the Sabres still would have the first right to claim Finley back if the Islanders try to send him to Bridgeport of the AHL in the next 30 days. Finley?s arrival gives the Islanders nine defensemen in training camp.[/sny-box]
