But wait, doesn't the cap recapture apply only if the player is traded of leaves the league for another league. If he retires before the contract is up since he signed it before age 35 and if he stays a Canucks there isn't a penalty no.

Oh never mind I read it again!

Bob McKenzie said on TSN Radio Wednesday that Brad Richards was destined to be bought out the day the cap recapture clause was put into the CBA.

McKenzie said, “If Richards doesn’t play the final three years of his contract, the Rangers will be hit with a cap recapture penalty is going to get dinged and dinged pretty good. The final three years are bogus years and he isn’t playing them. There is going to be a cap penalty for the Rangers if Brad Richards retires before that contract is up. I think it’s a given that they will buy him out.”
So McKenzie also believes a buyout wipes out any future Cap Recapture penalty.

Then I checked at Capgeek, Les Canadiens are not getting dinged with any kind of penalty after the Gomez buyout.

So yeah, a buyout wipes out any future Cap Recapture penalty.

Nothing to see here folks.... :oops:

Although... maybe your Vancouver Canucks should buy out Luongo. Image
By the time he retires it will be at least 6 years from now. MG will be long gone, the twins, Kesler, Burrows, Bieksa , hamhuis will be gone, Lack will be our goalie and the cap will be at 80 million. No worries.

Furthermore this will be challenged in the future by an army of litigators while that smarmy little asshole Bettman is tanning his hairy little carcass on some Mexican resort. I think there's a strong chance none of these cap recapture penalties never come to pass. I think it's bullshit that the league wants to penalize teams for contracts that they themselves okayed once upon a time.

I'm with you on this Blob. This clause plus retaining cap/salary in a trade were BB babies. He was self righteous and indignant and wanted to have this penalty in there. But I think it is utter nonsense that they league signs off on them and then gets punitive in a new deal. If they were gonna do this they should have allowed the teams a window to re-negotiate the deals or the league should have tried to have them quashed or something but to penalize teams after the fact is BS.

As for Luongo, I expect he will play into his 40's. Maybe not the full term but close. I doubt he will want to penalize any team by retiring. He can pull a Thomas and just fail to report without retiring and get suspended which is the way I see it going should he decide he has had enough. By the time the Canucks may have to deal with it, it will be years from now, hell I expect to be dead so I say trade his ass, or trade CS. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Not sure why we care because no way are they gonna buyout Luongo.

It's just I remember this question being asked early after the signing of the new CBA.

The answer at the time was that we won't know until all the details come out.

And I still can't find anything to date which answers that question definitively.

Quick, someone tweet Dreger! :lol:
Well, I suppose it begs the next question, "Can a team agree as part of the trade to buy out luongo if he retires?" Thus negating the cap recapture rule.

That's just it, this rule does not make any sense whatsoever, bordering on illegally vindictive.

So it wouldn't have surprised me if they had designed it so that you'd have a cap-penalty buyout or no.

Canadiens to buy out Kaberle

It appears Tomas Kaberle won't be back with the Montreal Canadiens next season.

According to multiple reports, the 35-year-old defenseman was informed by the organization Sunday that the club will buy out the remaining year on his contract, which has a salary cap hit of $4.25 million.

Add bryzglalov to the newly FA pool...

Having to choke down that salary it's kinda hard to see phillies owners taking a chance on 7uongimeanluongo...

But hey a player a pick or prospect and another with a shite salary to bury might fly..eh?

It is hard to say... Those Flyers are crazy. If they want someone, they will throw offer sheets, big contracts and terms at the players even the chance of getting them is zero... If they really like Luongo, I don't think the contract would be a problem for them.
