That's an interesting point... I wonder if the "Comrie Loophole" would change under the new CBA.
Regardless... the Grand Rapids Press has stated that the Wings are planning on signing him during the window.
That's strange. I thought I heard Howard was going to stay in Maine one more year. Wouldn't signing with the Wings preclude that?
Yep, signing a pro contract would make him ineligible for the NCAA. From what I've read he's planning on going back to Maine but is interested in what Detroit offers.
