Honest question...

Postby count2infinity on Wed May 08, 2013 9:01 am

It's somewhat pens related, but that place is so big of a cluster**** i probably wouldn't have gotten this answered. Can professional sports teams trade coaches and employees just like players? I'm merely curious as to whether that's something that's first off allowed, and secondly has it been done before?

thanks in advance.

I seem to recall the Raiders trading Gruden to TB.

It's been done in the past, but it's not very common. I think the chances of Bylsma being traded are slim to none and slim just left town.

That's in the by-laws, which I don't have access to. But, generally speaking, the answer in the NHL is: no, they cannot be "traded".

Now, that's a technical read. The process, AIUI, is a person (say coach Randy Carlyle) can leave for a new (usually better) job with another organization. If such a person is still contracted to the organization, they can work out a compensation for allowing the person to break his/her contract. The Ducks surrendered a 2nd round pick a few years back to get Randy Carlyle as their coach. I thought Ron Hextall leaving Philadelphia for Los Angeles (Asst. GM) also garnered a 2nd, but I could be misremembering.
