    No thanks. I'd rather see him retire early to find out if Poile has the stones to tell the NHL to eat **** on stupid rule application. Really I'd rather see him regain his health and continue to play, but short of that let's throw **** into the fan see what happens.

    See Luongo, Roberto, for what the league thinks about these contracts and whatever leeway Poile thinks he has.

    If he goes into the Hall, I hope it is as a Pred. That's how I will always remember him. His time in Montreal has been good but blase.

    I have been over this rule before, but it's crazy to think that the NHL would enforce a recapture penalty of 24 million on any team, I will just leave it at that.

    Precedent has been set with Luongo, so I think they have no choice but to enforce it. That being said, I'm pretty sure they try and do everything they can to make sure he ends up on LTIR for the duration of his contract, ala Pronger working for DoPS while still under contract.

    I hope not. I hope worst case scenario he comes back in 1-1/2 years in fantastic shape and tears the league a new one.

    The doom and gloom prognosis seems way too premature though.

    Exactly, it will never get to the point where they would actually need to enforce it.
    No team can survive the setback of 24 million to their salary cap if they want to be thought of as a legitimate NHL team. That team would be among the worst the league would have ever seen.

    Sounds like TMZ

    A reporter jobs is to report news...a gossip queens job is to make up **** for clicks and views, AKA Kypreos's entire career in a nutshell.

    If Weber is LTIR for the duration of his contract, there will be no recapture penalty. Why would Nashville give up valuable assets just for the privilege of paying a LTIR Weber?

    If a reporter gets no clicks or views, they're out of a job...

    This isn't rocket science. It's common sense.

    That's why you should take every news with a grain of salt. They are also all biased owned by companies with certain views or directions.

    It's all about power or money or both. Don't act like it's unique to kypreos. I don't even like the guy.

    They'd still have my support and many other peoples, and you can't put a price on that.

    The "cap benefit" never changes hands. Nashville had all the high actual salary years with a7.8m cap so they accumulated like 25 Mill worth of cap benefit. It would have been offset with the lower salary high cap hit years but they traded him away before that

    Sad thing about potential cap recapture penalties is the fact nashville didnt sign Weber to that huge contract, philly did which Nashville matched.
