      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Trade] Tim Thomas an Islander

Hmmm, isn't this covered in the new CBA though? He didn't retire, but the fact that he is healthy and not playing.. wasn't the new CBA worded so the cap hit returns to the original team that signed the player? I wonder if that wording includes players that don't report to camp.

I can't see the Isles getting away with this for more than a season. I imagine the NHLPA would file a grievance.

If they wanted to reach the capfloor, why didn't they just sign a free agent for 5 million and use him instead of giving up a 2nd for a guy who won't play.#Stupid

I think that is the condition with the pick. If he doesn't report then its probably a late rounder.

Hahaha, leave it to Charles Wang to find the first CBA loophole. I wouldn't be surprised to see this loop closed very soon. I don't think they are even done the official writing of the new CBA yet.

3 out of 6 posters on this page can't read. The 2nd rounder is CONDITIONAL. As stated in the OP and many times since.

I'm sure the NHL left these loopholes open on purpose so that certain teams could take advantage of them.

And they close any loophoes and apply penalties to teams like Vancouver. What a surprise.

Well, this basically voids the Luongo cap benefit recapture rule. The player just has to decide not to report to camp instead of retire. Apparently the NHL has put its blessing on this as well :sick:

Cap Compliance reasons only.

They will toll his contract and hope he returns next season.
