Another point as I understand it, is that he doesn't have to honor the contract. If he refuses to report and the NYI don't waive him, he just sits until the summer. He was not previously owned by the Islanders and thus doesn't "owe" them anything. It's not like arbitration where a panel rules a player can go overseas but owes the team the rest of his signed contract (i.e. the Hudler situation with the Wings) when he returns.
