Oct 3-89 the Jets traded back to the Flyers Pete Peeters & Keith Acton for futures
Like I say, I may have the wrong trade, but the end result was the NHL wasn't too happy and drafted up some rules.
Yah, this was Philly circumventing the 1989 Waiver Draft. Both teams were fined and the NHL later put in rules barring teams from reacquiring players in the same season they traded them away prior to the Waiver Draft.
Dean McAmmond ran afoul of that new rule in 2003 when Calgary traded him to Colorado three days before the October 4th waiver draft, then later reacquired him from Colorado at the trade deadline in March. The league let the trade stand, but ruled McAmmond ineligible to play the remainder of the season.
