CBA Causing Defections

from the Toronto Star,
"(The CBA) is pushing many players to look at Europe." "(The departures) will just increase every year," added prominent player agent Pat Morris. At issue is a clause within the agreement that has earned scant public attention. It falls under the category of minor-league compensation and is the newly created "re-entry waiver." Simply put, if a player is subject to waivers — typically meaning he has at least three years' professional experience — and is making more than $75,000 (all figures U.S.) at the minor-league level, he can not move freely between the NHL and the American Hockey League. If he is demoted to the AHL, he must clear waivers before he can be recalled.
