In your example why would 2nd place team sign another goalie out of the blue if they are set? Unless it's injuries (like use) 2nd place team has no need to go out and sign a goalie.
Jesus, did you even bother to read it? It was an example
. 2nd place team isn't signing a goalie for THEM, they are signing it as a FAVOR to the 30th/29th/28th (or whatever) team.
It's not that difficult to understand, is it? it could be speculated to the media that 2nd place team is trying to improve the goalie depth. It's not rocket science. And that's just ONE example. Don't get so caught up with the position, or circumstances. It's a loop hole that teams could
employ if they got creative.
Remember the twitter source from Devils saying they'd claim Nabokov and waive him so Detroit can get him? But that doesn't matter, because Detroit wouldnt get next crack at him. But it proves that Devils wanted to help Detroit...
EDIT: sorry if I come off rude. I just get irritated when people refuse to read a post, or pretend to not understand it. I know Michigan school systems are not THAT bad, atleast I hope not.
