Well the rule does exist. Check out the CBA. It mentions veteran players assigned to the minors can only be sent to either the IHL or AHL. Since the IHL has now gone the way of the dodo, looks like the AHL is the only destination outside of a special consent of the player. Ergo, McLennan has to agree.

I also wished Sutter luck and said a deal couldn't be made at the snap of a finger. When was that? Oh yeah, nine days ago. What events have transpired betwixt the meantime? Oh, that's right. Three more losses. Sutter also now has a better idea of the extent of Turek's injuries.

Hence, the acquisition of Kiprusoff, which I'll admit I didn't think Sutter could pull off. Time will tell if this was a good move.
