Everyone is going to pop in here and pull out that "No-one can sue us" clause but trust me, it has happened in other sports and would happen there.

Completely different animal.

Talking about something that affects a small percentage of their players compared to all of their players. It's not in the best interests of the NHL to force an injured player to come back early, either.

Uhh... this has nothing to do with the NHL forcing an injured player to come back early.

It does though.

If the NHL were to force the Devils to dress a 20 man roster, one of the two solutions available to them (the other being moving a player via waivers/trade) is forcing an injured player to play.

Therefore the NHL is not forcing injured players to play. They are forcing the Devils to dress a full roster while being cap-compliant.

There's also a third option: making your team cap viable and giving yourself some flexibility in the first place. I don't think Lamoriello can cry foul considering he created this mess for himself. Nobody forced his hand.

I have to agree. Devils fans will find little sympathy given how the organization put itself into this mess starting with the summer drama.

That won't be a problem. If the NHL forced the Devils to dress 16 skaters either Rolston or Volchenkov could have suited up last night, even though they weren't going to play. But seeing how nobody really gains anything by having an injured player sitting on the bench, it's highly unlikely that anything will happen.

I don't think the league will fine the Devils but I'm sure behind closed doors they are being asked to move players if they can asap.

I don't think there is a witch hunt to punish them (besides here). If the situation gets bad only NJ will be hurting themselves.
