    Intersting, trying to make room to bring Panarin back? With the 10% cap overage the have about $11M in cap room, wonder what they're up to.

    If he can’t medically play anymore, I don’t get why he can’t retire? At that point it’s not really cap circumvention if he retires due to medical reasons.

    Because then he won't get paid

    When I got the alert from the NHL app, the story with it said that he couldn’t retire because the Blackhawks would get charged with cap circumvention if he retired. I don’t think he is making that much here at the end of that contract either.

    I guess since he signed it before the CBA? Salary is $1M for these last three years...

    Didn't think this was necessarily thread worthy, but since we're talking about the Hawks in here, I saw this today:

    Yes, it is. Which is exactly why he won't retire (formally) until his deal expires. It's entirely wink wink nudge nudge.

    This is the type of contract the league targeted with recapture. The only way to avoid this is to live the life of the deal out.
