In addition to Friedmans article about the 'Burke Rule', here's LeBruns breakdown:
So, the Burke Rule isn't specific to backdiving deals, it's specific to deals that currently have 6+ yrs left. I'm fairly certain 90% of NHL teams have 6+ yr contracts on the books. 50% of league teams have 8+ yr contracts on the books. I can't imagine any of those GMs are going to go quietly into the good night with this rule.
Also, George Richards (
Panthers reporter guy
) stated Weiss has been tied to rumors with Van/Luongo. I have zero interest in Weiss as he's an upcoming UFA. Why would he want to re-sign with a team when he'll be the 3rd line C? Going from 1c to 3c isn't ideal for any player, now matter how good a team is.
