why are teams letting their players play in AHL ?

Why are NHL teams allowing any of their players to go to the AHL and pay and GET PAID !

Doesnt it hurt their ability to make a lockout work in their favour and dont they have to pay these players if they are playing for their farm team ?

It doesnt make much sense.


Hasek, 39, could accept a two-week conditioning assignment to Binghamton and it can be extended if Hasek agrees.

A team spokesman told The Citizen that the team will not make any official decisions on Hasek until after Wednesday, when the current collective bargaining agreement expires.

Centre Jason Spezza, tabbed by many to the team's No. 1 pivot, confirmed to the Ottawa Sun that he would likely report to Binghamton in the event of a lockout
