What does his mean? Not sure what it is.

What does his mean? Not sure what it is.

It's when a team would sign a coach and/or GM that has been "fired" by another team and the team signing him receives a draft pick as compensation.

For example: the Canucks received a draft pick when Columbus signed Tortorella, even though he was "fired" for over a year. I use "fired" in quotes because teams don't actually fire the coach/GM in the traditional sense. They're still being paid and under contract (as I understand it), so that's why the team's were being compensated.

This will no longer be the case.

Ah gotcha. Good change, it was a dumb rule for the most part. Sorry for typos, on my phone.

Cash or Czech?
