ANY team (other than A) can pick him up via waivers. This team B is liable for the full contract amount and cap hit. Team A gets no compensation for losing player to waivers.
The waiver order is determined by standings "today", so the team with the worst record has priority.
If he does not sign by 2/28 (trade/signing deadline), he is not eligible to play this season.
If he signs with a NHL team for next season, he's just like any other UFA out there; there are no waivers .
Thanks. Good info.
So 29 teams have priority over team A, or just those teams lower in the standings than team A?
