When I read the CFLPA memo on this, it seemed to suggest that the 3 Designated Americans would be allowed to substitute for an injured Canadian starter.  While it wasn't detailed on the mechanics of how this would happen, it is consistent with what the GMs have been whining about in terms of not having enough good Canadians to replace injured starters.  That sentiment was reported several times in the run up to the final CBA.

I think it will happen through a "chain substitution", but this is speculative on my part.  So, to make up an example:  If our d-line starter is Jake Thomas and one of our designated Americans is Jeffcoat, and or American DI is McAlister.   Jake gets injured, and we have Jeffcoat "sub in" for him as a starter under this replacement provision.   McAlister can then come onto the field as a "sub" for Jeffcoat.  Alternatively, Craig Roh, as a 3 year vet, could be the sub instead of McAlister. 

Not 100% sure on this, but its the only way I can make sense of it. 

One downside of this rule is it decreases the opportunities for fringe Natl. starters such as Jesse Briggs and Petermann to get into games, injury replacements will now be filled by Import players whenever possible.

Agreed. I think Ottawa still has a few more years till they are back in the hunt. And the Als are a crap shoot to see what kind of team they are this year.

For sure. The new rule only helps train wrecks like Saskatchewan who have no NAT depth. This rule is stupid and makes very little sense. It penalizes the teams that draft and develop their NAT content well.

Yes and no...you can choose to use one of the new designated Nationals in their spot, but you will still need a player to replace that guy if he leaves his position as generally these guys who meet the tenure time in the CFL generally are all going to be your starters anyway

An are though where I could see it benefiting is o-line where you could most likely roster an import back-up as he can cover both the import spot if an injury, or in our case Bryant or Hardrick could become a Canadian if one of the nationals gets hurt and the back up import comes in

Maybe I'm still not getting it. You still have to have 7 Nats on the field minimum, no? If so, it's status quo.

So if a starting Nat MLB goes down, you can fill that with a vet import MLB but another Canadian will have to displace an american elsewhere in order to get at least 7 on the field.

...Right? I'm not trying to challenge, I'm genuinely curious if I'm understanding correctly.

No Technically you don't have to replace the designated import National with a Canadian player...but...as roster work here you most likely are moving a starting Import into that national spot, but with limited numbers with the roster you may not have an extra import on the roster to fill his void...especially if he moves position on field..Teams with good depth will still have the advantage tho...

But isn't it such that no matter what, in the end you still have a minimum of 7 Canadians on the field?

I suppose the challenge is then to either have enough designated vets to fill the 3 roster spots + account for possible injury, have enough extra Nats + account for injury, or some combination of these (most likely the scenario, with vets becoming a commodity)

So it's injury situation that is the issue from a planning perspective, as there is a loss in flexibility. If anything, it sounds like fringe Canadians might get more of a shot. If, for example, Lawler went down, we wouldn't have any backup american receivers who meet the designated vet criteria, and so, say, Petermann gets time on the field where he might not if Woli and Demski stay healthy.

Feoli Gudino?  Didnt see that one coming. 

I guess Peterman is ready to start and they need depth for the new Canadian Air Force.

Yeah, I see it as a depth signing as well.  Will be nice to see him back in blue and gold.
