NHL counsel Bill Daly has told The Post that as long as no prior agreement exists between the team and the player to circumvent the collective-bargaining agreement by conspiring to defer a signing, the Blueshirts would indeed be eligible to receive the pick even if they were to sign Umberger after June 2.
That "hefty" signing bonus would look very suspicious in the eyes of the NHL legal team.
