There is no clear rule on saying you can't trade a player who then gets bought out to then sign that player. It's not in the CBA. How could Tampa be so sure that Toronto is going to buy out Lecavalier? Everyone will swear that this is what they're doing, but prove it. For all we know, Toronto could think they're getting a steal just for these draft picks.
Steal ? lol they are getting a player and draft picks with nothing going the other way
