I doubt he reports to Hartford. They'll probably mutually terminate the contract and let him become a FA just before the deadline.
I hope so, that would be the best scenario.

Chris freaking Simon plays in the KHL. They aren't above having goons in their lineup.

So that gives him a right to **** all over the organization?? What a bunch of BS propaganda. I don't care what happened to him in his personal life. His play on the ice is all that matters.

Will Donald agree to contract termination if he knows he's not going to get a contract from anyone else?

does a contract termination take away his cap hit?

I don't know if he would give up this money for next year, but can this become the Sykora situation where he refuses the assignment to Hartford, and they terminate the deal making him a free agent?

Mutual agreement to end the relationship is obviously the key.

Edit: here's the link: http://www.startribune.com/blogs/827...9cP3DieyckcUsI

In essence, Sykora will be free to sign with any team before the March 3 trade deadline and the Wild will be free of the remaining $600,000 or so of Sykora’s contract and salary-cap hit.

Well that's the real question. Would GM's pass him up on the waiver wire at $1.4MM, but then be willing to entertain a 1 year contract for something closer to $600k pro-rated (~$200k) for the remainder of the season? Guess we'll have to wait and see. I don't think clearing waivers necessarily means there's zero interest.

If a player refuses to report to the minor league affiliate after clearing waivers, he's in breach of his contract and the contract can be terminated. Petr Sykora went through the same thing a few weeks ago with Minnesota.

Am stating the obvious, but in case some aren't aware...

NYR waived him hoping someone would take him for nothing, thereby allowing NYR to rid a contract/player without taking back player(s)/salary. But in the salary cap world, most teams want to dump a player of their own and his salary. Not always true, but most times...so, trxjw is right, if there are no claims, does not mean no interest from other teams. But why not try hoping someone might bite.

MN knew Sykora was going to refuse to report, but teams must go through the process of waiving and allowing the player to refuse assignment in advance of terminating the contract. Legal reasons, CBA reasons why that is required.

The first step for terminating a contract is placing the player on waivers. When the player clears,the team assigns him to the AHL. When the player doesn't report,the team suspends the player and terminates the contract for breaching the contract.

Whether or not this happens with Brashear will played out in the next few days. However,the first step is placing the player on waivers and that occurred today.

Tomorrow is the Olympic roster freeze at 3pm. Brashear clears at noon and is assigned to Hartford. He is no longer on the cap for the break when the cap hits still accumulate. Brashear refuses to report and the contract is terminated. Brashear is free to negotiate with other teams during the break and eligible to sign another contract when the freeze is lifted after the Gold Medal game on February 28.

Brashear isn't intimidating unless he's dealing out a dirty hit, which is NOT what we want. we need someone who's able to intimidate the opposing team-- who will make them think twice before taking a run at hank, cally, stall, del z or gabby... and we can get that for less than what we pay this bum.

I remember the day orr left and i was saying to my girlfriend in the car on the way down the shore, "damn im going to miss having a heavy on our squad"(shes a huge hockey fan, debbies unfortunately) My girlfriend then looked at tsn on her blackberry and saw that the rangers signed brashear, so i asked her the terms she said 2 years 1.4 mill. In my head i was thinking I'll take brashear for 300k less a year over orr, then she told me 1.4 per and i almost stopped the car to puke.
