"If" he was found guilty, he would not be bought out. His contract would be terminated with cause.

 

My guess is that JB has already tried shopping him around with no takers; they also have a player in Podkolzin that looks like he will be an upgrade on Virtanen at less than half the cap hit.

Pretty sure LA will step up and take JV

 

Evander and Jake..imagine that :mellow:

Does this mean we have to buyout Jake before the ED, because he doesn’t qualify to be bought out after?  

The buyout window is still open after the expansion draft.  It closes only on the 27th of July.  He can be bought out before the roster freeze for expansion or once it's lifted.   They have to make the decision this month though as he won't be eligible for the 2nd buyout window if there is one.

We'll be able to waive, and buy him out after the roster freeze is lifted, with the last eligible day to waive being the 26th. So, we'll have from July 13th (at the latest)-July 16th, and from July 22nd - 26th to exercise our buyout options. 

 

Edit: ^ mll beat me to it

Some Seattle fans still want Jake in the ED draft -  see him as potentially their "Tuch".

 

Seems there is more tolerance for his alleged behavior in the US  (cf #45)

I think you are right about that Googlie.

26 woman accused their president of sexual misconduct (laws are different down south so misconduct is the correct term not assult like in Jake's case). 47% of their population still voted for him after that. Yeah, their tolerance for that kind of evil is much higher.

Sad, but that may be true. Wasn't Kobe Bryant accused of rape as well? Apparently, Chauncey Billups who is now coach of the Portland Trailblazers was too.

Prediction: Jake bought out around 5pm. 

I disagree.

 

Canucks will likely wait till after the expansion draft to waive him and buy him out. He, IMO, will not be protected and Canucks will wait and see if the Kraken are interested in him. If they do bite, it saves having to buy him out. Not likely to happen but no rush till after expansion draft is over.

Anyone know how to get the name and numbers changed on your Virtanen jersey?  ;-)

 

 

Could always take the name off - keep the #18 and go with the Ryan Stanton or Cam Barker.  Classic.
