Question about Olympic transaction Freeze...

Just a couple of questions for you guys that I know can answer this for me:

Can GM's still talk trade to other GM's but don't make the deal until after the Olympics?

Can GM's make signings during this time or is that part of the transaction freeze?

Just curious

They can talk, but can't make any trades. I doubt signings can be done either, talk and a handshake probably.

Also teams can't pracitce until Feb 24th.

GMS WILL talk trades and then announce it in 36hours between the end of the olympics

During the break teams can sign people who are no in the nhl or contracts that kick in next year--but they can not say sign a player who is an UFA during the freeze

It's a great time for Tambi to extend the RFA's he wants next year.

yes

if say GaGner finalizes a deal for next year--they can sign him

however say Lowetide wants to join the oilers as a goalie as UFA--they could not announce it or file it with the nhl till the oly's are over and he could not practice with the team
