Doesn't the NBA have a rule that prevents specifically this move?

Part of me wants to complain that this is clearly a cap circumvention move that should not be allowed, but since this is Orpik we’re talking about, I can let it slide this time.

I already said that I’m okay with it since it means he plays in Washington.

If they don't, they should.

I dont really care that he's back. But as someone pointed out during the playoffs, a team that signs Orpeck to that deal doesn't deserve any success. Now they just get loan forgiveness.

On PlayStation, 3 times I've traded more players away than received (two 3 for 1, and a 4 for 2) and other team put one of the guys that I traded to them on waivers and I grabbed him back.

Tangradi is a dog lover who owns a boxer named Carson in honor of the street in Pittsburgh where he met his wife, Caitlyn Hess. The couple married on June 21, 2014. A Penn State graduate with a flair for fashion, Hess started SCHEÉ (pronounced SHE-ay), a shoe company with a philanthropic twist where a percentage of each sale goes to a charity.
He named his dog after Carson Street? That's some yinzer ish right there.

Wow, I actually went and searched out a legit link for that because I was certain it wasn't real...what the hell...isn't he like a 30 point player that just hits a lot...? Did he have a higher point total this year playing with Kuznetsov and Ovechkin?

I have a feeling he's going to be worth it
here's my scouting report
big dude, good skater
good hands
capable of sixty points in a complimentary roll
and
team ped connection seems to be first rate

The Rangers have avoided arbitration with defenceman Brady Skjei and agreed on a six-year contract. According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the deal is for $31.5 million and carries a cap hit of $5.25 million.

I probably like Skjei more than most, but six years is a long time.

Damn that's a steal for Washington. Wish we had Wilson locked up for that contract.

Apparently over half of Wilson's salary is in signing bonuses, making it virtually buyout-proof
