While on the topic of Sammy and waivers, I have a question for you guys. I assume it would be protected against, but then I could also assume it's not.
Could Kenny waive Sammy and send him to gr until he gets hurt, then call him up and place him on LTIR to get rid of his cap hit? It seems like cap circumvention to me, but I don't know if there were any rules against this. If it's perfectly legal, what are we thinking not doing it? Theres a much higher chance of him getting hurt playing games than in practice. Seems like a pretty foolproof idea to me if there is nothing in the cba against it.
First off welcome to LGW.
In regards to your point there's no way the club would orchestrate a plan that revolves around assuming a player is going to get injured.
Not to mention we would still be short a roster man as long as he's healthy in the minors as we wouldn't be able to bring anyone up because of the cap.
