Nope. in April 2009, the Toronto Maple Leafs were fined $500,000 and surrendered a fourth-round pick after helping defenceman Jonas Frogren buy his way out of a contract in Sweden.

Burke tried to sign Frogren, but the contract was rejected. Granted it's different circumstances but we've all heard of lawyers twisting one situation to look like another.
