I do think there's a rule of some kind, because I seem to remember reading that you're better off waiting until you
the space to LTIR a guy.
Also...is there a reason why Lappy couldn't be sent down (in a "paper" move, obviously) so that his cap hit could be banked as well? I assume there's a rule covering that...maybe something about his being a 35+ contract?
But for the 35+ Rule Lappy could merely retire and be off the books, not demotion needed... and Lappy being the type guy he is assures me he would retire if need be.
... But even if he were not a 35+ player he could NOT be waived down to the A because you cannot waive down injured players per the CBA... IIRC.
