I don't see any great way that would allow a team to proactively deal with a situation like Neids. At best the team still would miss the main UFA signing period.

I wouldn't mind seeing some early deadline date for an absent w/o permission or defected player to rejoin a team. Say October 15th or such, after which the player is not eligible to play in the NHL that season.
