I've been a proponent of the rebuild for 2-3 years.

I think Feaster would like to rebuild, but doesn't have the owners concurrence to do so. SO he does so around the edges.

I actually think that feaster's interpretation of the MOU language may be correct. In any event, I don't think there is any way that the NHL would have allowed ROR to go on waivers based on the language contained in a MOU, when clearly the intention was that the waiver rule did not apply to RFA. THe rule was put in to prevent teams from stashing UFA"s in Europe and having them come over just before the playoffs. Since the rule was agreed not to apply to RFA's, there is no reason why the whole offer sheet system was meant to not be available if a player played in Europe.
