Exactly. The rule f***ed everyone. The signing team is pissed cause they didn't get their player, The player is pissed cause he's claimed by a bottom dweller, and the bottom dweller is pissed cause he shockingly doesn't want to report. It's a lose-lose-lose! Nice job NHL!
His hatred of the Wings is so painfully transparent.
The rule itself only caused chaos and drama. Given that Nabby's apparently refused to report to the Islanders I really don't see how this was a good result for any of the parties involved.
