To me he spirit of the 35 rule was not for these cases rather to stop circumvention by long Cap friendly contract... which this was clearly not.
But, yeah I'm worried also.
If they screw us, I'm going to be furious. They let the Devils get by with Mogilny who had a
degenerative, chronic hip injury
when the Devils signed him to a 35+ deal... and then his hip ended his career. That was a *ing joke. This is because Lappy took a slapper directly to the face and contused his brain.
So... yeah, if we get the shaft here it'll be worth raising hell over, because we'll have been jobbed.
I'm actually all for them being strict about these situations within reason, but Mogilny should have counted against the Devs cap (which would have *ed 'em royally)... and the fact that they let 'em off for that one, means shouldn't be able to get us for this one unless they're complete hypocrites.
