He only has 1 year left so if he does turn out to be bad for the room/team you can cut ties rather quickly.
Yes but if he doesn't pan out we have no franchise goalie.
Jim wrote:5 teams need to become cap compliant today. The highest is only $2.1M over the cap (per Capgeek). Is it going to be as simply as LTIR or will moves need to be made by all 5, especially the Pens? Putting Vokoun on LTIR frankly gets then into Cap compliance without sending anyone down: -$2M + $540K for Zatkoff = -$1.46 M, $364K in the black. But that does not solve long term considerations.
If they waive someone right now, does that cap hit get removed right now, or only after he clears waivers tomorrow?
Jim wrote:Complete side question...
When you waive someone is it actually 24 hours from when you notify the league or it is "24 hours" meaning something like "close of business tomorrow" type thing...?
