Yeah, it was timed that way because of the signing bonus...but pretty sure McCabe was getting that money no matter what. The deal waited on it because no one else wanted to pay for it...so Toronto swallowed it. It was deferred cash as I recall.

Player. NMC. Waived.

No way Briere would do that?

Examples are examples that disprove idiotic absolute statements of certainty. Unless you have had direct conversations with Briere, you have no clue what personal motivations might lead to or not lead to him waiving his NMC. However, what the examples show is that there are reasons guys waive their NMCs and it happens with some regularity...in all sports.

Why is Briere so different from other players that have waived their NTCs?
