CapGeek is reporting on twitter that cap-exempt call ups are replacing amateur try-out deals for emergency situations. Hopefully, there is stil a provision for ATOs in extreme emergency cases. Here's a nightmare scenario, Jackets-style:

Jackets are in LA playing the Kings. A goalie goes down in morning skate. The Falcons are at home and the Icemen are in Trenton (both clear across the country). The Jackets can't fly a backup goalie in fast enough.

Hopefully an ATO would be allowed in such a situation.
