Every time I feel like I have a handle on the collective bargaining agreement, another wrinkle arises that sends me back scratching my head. And this is again the case when it comes to defenseman Brian Fahey, who yesterday I reported would have to go through recall waivers if he was summoned to New York by the Rangers.
Now I’m told that isn’t the case, and that Fahey could spend the season flowing freely between Hartford and New York without exposure. This was first pointed out to me by Chip McCleary at the reliable “NHLSCAP.com”:http://www.nhlscap.com/, and it was confirmed by Rangers assistant general manager and cap guru Cam Hope.
So there you have it. It’s not the first time I’ve been wrong. And sad to say, it won’t be the last.
