I'm still curious, though, why Bettman wouldn't nix a proposed Philly-Nash deal in the first place, since it plainly exists to underhandedly circumvent a rule already in place. Isn't it also in the best interests of the game to preserve the integrity of the rules in place regarding trading players who've been signed to offersheets?
The league doesn't get involved in the trade until after both parties agree to terms and call the league office for the trade call. Then, all terms are reviewed, and NHL official makes sure there are no cap problems or issues with trading the assets/players.

Only then is the trade final.
