No guarantee on the contract. The player is just screwed. Again, I really didn't think this was even a scenario someone would seriously suggest, that they would think through all aspects of such a suggestion. Guess not.

Using your logic, why don't the Flames extend tryout offers to Keith Aucoin and Jeff Taffe? We could use Aucoin's skill and Taffe's size in the middle. They might just beat out an under-performing veteran in the shortened camp and force the new coaching staff to go with that proven quantity in the career minor leaguer! Make sense?
Feels weird agreeing with you, but I couldn't have said it better myself
