So is there a cap in the AHL? Like what happens if they waive Huet to put him in the minors, there is no cap hit on the Hawks right? And i highly doubt anyone is gonna pick up his 5 million dollar contract? So how does that work? It seems like a logical way to free up a good portion of money to sign some cheap people while not having to dump as much.
There's no cap in the AHL.
If Huet is waived, he won't count against the cap. But he can't be taken off their cap until the end of training camp.
Also, Jonathan Toews gets a $1.3 million bonus for winning the Conn Smythe. Because it wouldn't fit on Chicago's cap from this past season, it carries over to the 2010/11 season.
I can't think that would be a good career move for Stevie. Yeah, he may be the GM but all the politics around that place is going to doom any GM from the start. Aren't they still run by a board of people who don't care about hockey or know anything about assembling a team?
He needs to go somewhere that will give him some actual control over how the team is made up.
No, they have a new owner and have cleaned out the front office and coaching staff.
