More CBA details-IR/Grandfathering/04-05 contracts

From Ken Campbell

Another aspect of the deal is a provision that will allow teams to start the season with a payroll over the salary cap if they can't get it down in time. This would allow teams to make the necessary roster changes as the season progresses.

There's also expected to be a provision where the salary of a player called up to replace a player on injured reserve will not count against the cap unless the replacement player's salary is higher.

So there will not a manadatory cut down of the big money teams by the start of the season.Grandfathering?Necessary changes as the season progresses?A vague statement

The NHLPA wants players to receive credit for service time in exchange for allowing the 2004-05 deals to be eliminated

A source denied claims in the Times story that the two sides were haggling over whether player contracts from the 2004-05 season should be honoured this coming season. According to the source, the players are willing to let those expire as long as each player is recognized for a year of service, even though there was no season

Seems like a fair compromise

Seems fair but does raise a question on rookies. Players like Ovechkin, Malkin and maybe some others (those in the AHL ready to make a jump) might have been able to play in the NHL last year if there had been a season and likely at least would have signed a contract. Would be hard to determine who but a player with status could they sign a 3-year rookie contract versus the 4-year that is being rumored in the new CBA?

They'll throw the rookies under the bus on this issue again. Thats just the way these things work.

Surely not! They said this was all about looking after the future NHL players.

To be fair to the NHL, it's just not them. I guess it's just part of the "business"

Worse for guys like Carter and Richards who are now 20 and haven't signed their first contract yet and if it is a 4 year entry draft deal will be 25 by the time they can get a contract negotiated based on their abilities.

I figured they wouldnt count players brought up against the cap in the case of an injury.. kind of makes it a little easier for the big market teams to take a chance on veterans.
