NHLPA would never agree to this. But even if if did happen, it would ruin everything the first lockout accomplished.


I'm not sure this adversely effects players. They get paid and play somewhere else. Seems like the benefit to players would also allow GM's to take a chance on a big deal for someone they may otherwise offer shorter terms/fewer $.

Its the NHL that should shut this down. Its more cap circumvention. Without looking a the rules, is there anything that would stop GMPH from paying off Bryz and resigning him?


Yeah, all of the amnesty provisions that I've read/heard about would have the player receiving their entire salary.

The NHLPA would love this! There's nothing but upside for the players.

Yeah. Stick it to those players signing reasonable contracts at a manageable term instead of bumping up their value in free agency. Wait... What?



i'm saying that adding this rule would make the whole thing go away, or they'd be forced to admit that they just want a bailout of their current dumb mistakes.

I'd support it, if there was a clause that made the GM that had signed the contract have to hold a press conference, in which he detailed how dumb he was for agreeing to it, in the first place.

Players would love this, get paid, sign a new deal, and get paid again! Paid twice for the same amount of work, who wouldn't love that?!


This whole amnesty clause is a joke.. Thats what you morons get for signing Scott Gomez to a cap hit of 7 mil a year (or trading for it).. I mean seriously.. the risks to such contracts are very clearly obvious.

They can buy players out at any time (Yashin, Drury rumored before retirement) but the 2/3 of the salary counts towards the cap. They want it to not count towards the cap in this instance.. you made your bed, lie in it.

Yes there is:
