If MAF retires, is there a cap recapture penalty for Vegas/Chicago?

Vegas would have a $1M penalty.

Love Lehner but sometimes for anyone’s mental health it’s best to not get too wrapped up in the internet. Especially Twitter

Lehner has to realize that there are just some miserable things that resemble people online who exist only to enjoy other people suffering.

Imagine winning the Vezina, making the conference finals, and carrying your team to the playoffs only to be traded and informed via Twitter.

 

Knights are garbage.

 

And they haven't even reached out. No class, no shame.

That's some kind of messed up. He played his heart out for them. That backstabbing picture from before certainly rings true. 

 

So what's Chicago's angle here? Did Fleury not state publicly that if he was traded he would retire? Why would they bother? Just in case it was a bluff and he will resign himself to being forced into action? 

 

This is just weird.

Chicago's got nothing to lose if he chooses to retire 

 

He's a quality goaltender, they're tryna get the last gasp out of their franchise stars

Final FU to his agent I think.

 

Pretty crappy way to treat a guy that played his heart out for you.

Hopefully somewhere he can be a clear #1.  Incredibly underrated goalie and a great teammate.

3 cups,second youngest goalie to record 400 wins.

Current Vezina winner.

 

Anyone who under rates him doesn't know much about hockey.

No - his contract will simply come off the books.

 

It's no longer possible to sign recapture contracts ever since that was corrected in the 2013 CBA.  There are only 4 active recapture contracts left now that Parise/Suter have been bought out and Weber will probably not play again.

  • Keith - Chicago would have a recapture penalty should he retire before the end of his contract but not Edmonton.
  • Carter - LA would be on the hook for a recapture penalty but not Pittsburgh
  • Quick
  • Crosby

with Tuch out 6 months, no Fleury, and no Reaves running around they are going to be easier to play against.

I think they might have made it to another Cup Final with him in net, but they ditched him back to back years.
