“ Though not implicitly stated, it seems reasonable to assume the league’s issue was whether the Capitals intentionally circumvented the salary cap and buyout rules.

When a team buys a player out of his contract, by rule they cannot re-sign him for a full calendar year. Washington traded Orpik and his $5.5 million cap hit to the Colorado Avalanche and then re-signed him after he was bought out for a cap hit of only $1 million. The Caps ultimately walked away with Orpik still on the team, but with an extra $4.5 million in cap space.”
That’s from USA Today
There were similar articles in NBCsports, The Hockey News and a number of other outlets. If I’m wrong I stand corrected, but I even skimmed through the CBA to see if I could find a definitive answer one way or the other and I couldn’t. So in that regards kiss my ass about spewing off because I don’t know how many people on here will actually research stuff.
