He would have to be waived. Then the Habs could lend him to the Swedish team. I believe we'd still owe his contract in dollars, but he'd come off the 23 man roster and would no longer count against the cap.
Obviously, he'd have to waive his NMC to facilitate the move.
But unlike half this forum.... Best of luck. If it lets him play at a level where he can contribute in all areas of the game, good for him. I wish him the best of luck.
Funny little story, but never underestimate the talent of any NHLer. Including a goon. Stu Grimson was once my hockey school instructor and he could do things with the puck that I can only dream about doing. And by NHL standards, he was basically George Laraque. Same for other goons. Gordie Dwyer grew up in the same town as some of my friends and he was the kid who could skate circles around the entire town and score at will. Even the biggest goon has to be unreal talented.
