It's almost as stupid as having to put him through waivers, but at least they'd get him for next season.

It's much more likely that Feaster had no idea that could be a possibility and made no plans to prepare for that eventuality, because he is an incompetent, turrble GM.
No, I don't think that's possible. They eliminated the ability to 'loan' players to Europe to get rid of their cap hit and while this isn't the same thing they can't do that.

What the Avs could've done and I heard this from Bob McKenzie on XM today was to let Columbus know what was going on, got them to trade an asset like one of their young prospects, take Calgary picks and then Columbus would claim ROR and Calgary would get nothing.
