Actually the relevant party is the NHLPA.
When Lemieux returned the last time he wanted to play for the minimum to help the penguins out but in the end settled on 5 mil (roughly) so the NHLPA would not blame him for hurting the market for other players or for taking down the league salary average.
That being said I do not recall a peep out of the NHLPA when the duck brothers went to Colorado.
So in short, there is no rule against it but for unionized workers it go's against the best interests of the collective.
