Loaned, booted out....what's the difference, eh? :D

How does this solve their cap problems. They were already over, correct? Does this get them compliant or give them room for more acquisitions. Either way, good job getting someone to take him.

This is disappointing to see the Hawks get an extra $5+ mil in cap space.

Yeah, this move will give them $1.5 million in cap room. They still need to add one more guy up front.

this is something that should maybe count for 50% of the cap hit since he still under contract to them

Why this doesn't count as circumventing the cap, I don't know. However, Chicago can loan Huet to the Swiss team and while still paying him, have his cap hit come off their books.

I heard they got this Truco guy. He is amazing. Amazing at getting pawned by Datsyuk that is.

I don't get it. So they can "allow" him to go Swiss, but they get cap relief? How the hell does that work? If that's the case can't we "loan" ritola to the elitserian? And if that's the case what makes any minor leagues any different than euro leagues? Why can't we loan Miller or ritola to the AHL, OHL, QMJHL to save roster space? Obviously I don't fancy myself an international hockey transfer specialist.

Point being its crap that Chicago looks to be getting away with this. Taking Huet aside and saying " we will have no choice to bury you, so you should start looking elsewhere... besides it will help our cap too..."

Anyway... good luck signing free agents of note... they are making a run at the champs... leafnation.

Wonder if the League will step in to look at this "questionable" deal. My guess is not.

more questionable than the kovalchuck signing, although in the cba i believe this is allowed

I'm calling shenanigans. Not on the rumor being true, but the s***tiness of how it works. Agree with CenterIce.

We can, they'd just have to clear waivers first (though the AHL is the only NA league we can loan players to, ECHL too for players on ELCs).

While you can make a case maybe for something like one-way deals counting toward the cap (partially or in full) regardless of what league the player is in, no rule like that exists in the current CBA. This is really no different than waiving any other player, just in this case he happens to have a high salary.

Chicago still has to pay the price, both the $5.6+ million salary (possibly for two years) and whatever flack they take for treating him this way. I'd say at the least Chicago will have to more generous handing out NMCs for a while, though they probably won't be in the market for any big FAs any time soon anyway.

There's absolutely no ill will from the Huet camp towards the Hawks. In fact, his agent has gone out of his way to compliment the Hawks for trying as hard as they could to make it work for Huet.

As has been said, the CBA doesn't allow contracts to be ripped up or renegotiated, and Huet's agent says Huet would have done that to stay in the NHL. Now whether they really would have done that if allowed is anyone's guess. But this will have zero affect on the Hawks and getting free agents in the future.
