Those picks cannot be traded.

This is a far better idea for Nashville than paying these outrageous contracts for players that can go on holidays like Gomez has for life.The owners when they sign these contracts should be entitled to some form of compensation when players don't even produce at a level comparable to rookies when healthy "superstars".I'm not jealous of the money he makes but it sure wouldn't fly in the private sector where you earn your money and are paid for production with bonuses.The picks could be part of a "gentleman's agreement"whereby the party "Columbus in the Nash trade" will pick by proxy and Nashville could recieve a minor league player each year as compensation,hardly similar to the circumvention of the rules that NJ Devils,Minnesota Wild and Philadelphia lawyers have used.Particularly when the Pronger deal is added to the Weber offer sheet.

July 1st to June 30th I believe is the way they count it. Now them not being allowed to trade him in the 1st year he would automatically make it to July 1st 2013 therefore hitting another bonus witch Nashville would be paying again

And the rule is also NOT for the most fortunate. But for the majority who isn't. Yet, it's all great to say that the Philly owner is amongst the one who wants the players to take a paycut and so on yet, TO THIS DAY, if he doesn't do anything, maybe the Rangers will.....So you don't create laws 'cause you personnally believe in them. You create it so that your opponents can't have an advantage on you. Have no problem with what Philly did. But hey, if it means abolishing this system, not even have RFA's anymore and so on...so be it. Whatever they decide. But as of now, they go with what is in place. Preds don't like it? Take the pick, you have some great youngsters D-men in your system, you'd pick some d-men along the way and we never know, they might be better sooner than we think.

Now....would they be interested in Kaberle????
It's not if the road should be 60, it's that they WANT it to be 60.

Now, we don't know which ones actually want that, but I'm guessing it's a majority if they are actually making it a demand.
In any event, the owners are all in the same batch right now.

Trade him to Philly for four first round picks, I hear they're offering that much

I could see Nashville letting Shea Weber go and then sign Yanik Weber for 14 years at 1mill per year.....that way they'll still be able to sell their Weber jerseys and save a boat load of money!

Teams can trade the picks they get via offer sheet

Lightning stupidly sent the ones they got from Gratton offer sheet back to Flyers for Renberg and Dykhuis

The restriction on offer sheets it that the player cant be traded for a year

Excellent point.

On the other hand, Philadelphia could become so powerful that it will take a world class rebuild to ever get out of the eastern conference.

Giroux, Schenn, Couturier, Weber, all on the same team.

Bryzgalov balances the equation to hold the Flyers down with rest of East

You send an offer sheet to Giroux or Couturier because they have so much money tied up to other players.

When you say "they" do you mean all those fans that will stop going to the games?

Bonuses can't be affected by potential salary rollbacks which is brought into the new CBA negotiations. Inflation is also a factor too in those insanely long contracts so you want to pocket as much as you can now.
