The Devils trying to sign Kovy into his mid 40's and at such obvious circumvention (I believe his salary in final years was less then 1M) had to be called out by league and it was right thing to do
And I agree.

But same goes here. They're signing a player that will not play a second and won't get paid as a result, but it will count to their cap (due to the fact that he's over 35) and push the Isles over the cap floor.

This is even more blatant circumvention. They're essentially dropping the cap floor by $5 million by doing this.

If the NHL went after the Devils for their contract, then they've got to do something here. Essentially the Isles are just adding cap space for a player who has no intention to play and, as a result, the team has no intention of actually paying.
Disagree, they could flip him before July 1st for his rights, if he states he's interested in playing next season.

Also always the chance like Nabokov the Isles get him to comeback in summer as there 1 yr #1 option

Thomas has said he wont play this year ,, He hasn't said he wont play next year

Also the fact is Thomas was 35+ contract ,, Just because he bailed doesn't change the fact he can be traded

His cap hit remains and his contract can be tolled within rules setup under CBA

There is nothing against rules or spirt of CBA the Isles are doing

Well, the Blues are going to lose in regulation, but that means the Wings win tonight. Can't be too upset with that, though. I don't think anyone is scared of that Detroit team. Blues will drop to 6-4-0, while looking very shaky over the past week+.

Preds also going to win in regulation bumping them to 5-2-3.

They acquired a guy solely to get above the cap, knowing that they don't have to pay him a dime.

If that's not against the spirit of the cap, then I don't know what is.

Since Thomas is 35+ contract his contract has to be regarded as same value as any other

Cant punish Isles for acquiring him

I must say I'm amazed at the Hawks' run so far. Hawks are in Smashville Sunday evening. I expect an excellent game as usual with you all. Hopefully we can get atleast a point off ya, or maybe be the first to knock you down.

Tyler Myers a healthy scratch for Sabres tonight

Having a dreadful year (11 GP with 1 goal and a -9)

Tyler Myers a scratch for Buffalo tonight. Sabres giving up 5.39 goals per 60 Min. of 5-on-5 play with him on the ice. Worst among D in NHL.

Didnt Myers lead the NHL in giveaways in his rookie year? I dont know what his numbers in that department looked like since then but Id be interested if anyone had them.

He would do something funny a few minutes after I turn off the game.

Here is a GIF, but a video when it comes out will be much better. It wouldn't have mattered if it went in anyway as the Pens were offsides, but still hilarious. Couldn't tell if it was Fleury or Malkin that shot the puck from the Pens crease.

Erik Karlsson not looking good at all in the Jets game. Lazy giveway to top it off which led to the Jets goal.
I am sure he is good, but not seeing it at all today
