It's not so much a cap problem as it is a "money down the crapper" problem.

If you want to talk about "money down the crapper" - wait until Yashin gets assigned to the AHL.....

For arguments sake cause some of us have been thinking of such a scenario...for him to collect his salary, he would have to stay down in the AHL for the remaining 4yrs of his contract?...and his salary would not count against the cap?..If the answers to both my questions is YES...then the Isles could free up 100% of his salary towards the cap.

Yes, I believe that both assumptions are correct.


He has five years left on his contract though, not four.

I don't think the Isles have to assign him to the AHL either. He could be sent to the ECHL, and that would still hold true. Let's see how he thinks about retirement once he starts playing for the Augusta Lynx, Greenville Grrrowl, Idaho Steelheads, or Florida Everblades.

The one thing that the Devils would have going is that both players are only signed through 2007. So if there are teams that miss out on this year's crop of free agents and want a boost for 2006-07 while retaining financial flexibility for the 2007 offseason......

Naturally, it would probably be one of two deals:

A) The Roenick: Mogilny and a draft pick to team X for future considerations

B) The Oscar the Grouch, your garbage for mine: Mogilny to Team X for a player with an equally ugly contract

Thanks...Although I doubt Wang would do it.

Wiemer signed before the lockout, so he'd be under contract through the 2006-07 season if he signed a 3 year deal with the Flames. On the bright side, that means no more Erik Rasmussen.

Not sure we could do this but another option would be to ship him off to Russia, get some Russian team to pay part of his contract(i assume we could get them to pay 2-3 million) and have him play there. Would only cost the team 4-5 million and still not be counted against the cap.

If Lou was smart he would call up the caps, give them a good deal to take both Mogilny and Malakhov(who is retired), you might be lucky and have then take them for nothing or you might have to do the Roenick. Either way that avoids any cap issues with those 2.

The lockout yr...does that count as a yr played towards a player's contract?...just to confirm because my understanding is that it does not.

Yep. So NJ's got him for one more year.

It does count, hence why a lockout puts pressure on the players to come to an agreement while in labor negotiations. On the flip side, the players are allowed to use the lockout year as a 'year of service' towards the new free agency guidelines.

How about if a player like Yashin retires...I know Palffy retired...what happens to the remaining money on the contract?...does the player collect or does he lose that money?
