Otherwise, some of those types of players may not get the contract they deserve because an NHL team doesn't want to risk NHL cap space on a guy that may ultimately end up in the AHL.
Okay, thanks, that make sense.

I thought I read somewhere that Walker had off-season surgery and is still recovering, therefore will be palced on LTIR?

The National Hockey League plans to stretch out its playoff season through to the end of June to make up for a shortened season, broadcast executives have been told, posing challenges for networks who usually shift their programming away from hockey as the weather warms.

The regular season is set to end at the beginning of May, and the last playoff game could be played on June 25th under the scheduling being considered by the league. The late playoff run is particularly challenging for Rogers Media, which is fielding its most potentially competitive Toronto Blue Jays in years and will have trouble fitting both NHL games and baseball games onto its collection of sports channels.
If they're going to be playing until June 25th why not just have a 50 game season. It makes a lot more sense then playing some division rivals 4 times and the others 5.

I think he is working for Comcast in the Bay Area (San Jose). This is likely a national Comcast show, not limited to the Flyers.

Chicago has bulls on, bay area has warriors.

but it probably will air afterwards or somewhere that they see fit

That is Taliban length......I'd say it's time to shave it. They interviewed him during the Sixers game last night. He did say he was going to shave it.

NHL governor inside the room via text: ``It's been ratified.''

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
Important to remember that players haven't ratified the deal yet. They're expected to hold their vote Thursday-Friday

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun
Update from NHLPA: vote is now expected to be held Friday-Saturday, no longer Thursday-Friday

NEW YORK - The NHL board of governors rubber-stamped the details of the league's new 10-year collective-bargaining agreement with players, leaving only the NHL Players' Association ratification as the only event needed for the 2012-13 season to start on Jan. 19.

The owners' vote was unanimous, Boston Bruins owners Jeremy Jacobs said.

Commissioner Gary Bettman began his news conference by apologizing to players, sponsors and fans.

He said the fact that deal is for 10 years "guarantees our attention will stay where it belongs: on the ice."

It's expected that the players will accept the deal by Saturday, allowing training camps to open on Sunday.

Bettman said that Olympic participation and realignment will be dealt with later.

The new deal, reached Sunday just before 5 a.m., ET on Day 113 of the lockout, allows for the two sides to split hockey-related revenue 50-50. In the previous CBA, players received 57%.

Maybe on HockeyBuzz?

Quote:
According to information obtained by Tim Panaccio, it is unlikely that defenseman Matt Walker will get medical clearance to play. The defenseman has been dealing with groin, hip and abdominal issues throughout the lockout and is not going to be able to play anytime soon. Even if he were healthy, the new CBA would prohibit the Flyers from burying Walker's full $1.7 million cap hit in the AHL. If medically cleared and assigned to the AHL, the Flyers would still be on the hook for $800,000 of his cap hit. But teams cannot demote injured players. So he is a candidate for long-term injured reserve instead.

This was posted elsewhere but Redden was mentioned in an Ottawa (for the Senators) newspaper column yesterday:

Quote:
A long-shot possibility would be bringing back longtime Senator Wade Redden. If the New York Rangers bought out Redden’s deal — he’s under contract for $5.6 million this season and next — he would be available as a free agent. Redden has played 994 career NHL games, but he has been buried in the AHL for the past two seasons, primarily because the Rangers couldn’t squeeze his salary under the cap.

Regular buy-out or compliance buy out. That's a bit confusing, since the compliance amnesty can't happen til Summer, right?

CapGeek ‏@capgeek
It appears the "cap advantage recapture" penalties will not apply to teams who traded long-term contracts prior to the new CBA.


Though Crease on the business board thinks that Richards' contract would still affect us

Even if he does (which this makes me think he does not), it should only be $150k in recapture penalties.
