Huet’s Hands Are Tied

from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail,

Huet’s agent, Steve Bartlett, said his client would have been willing to renegotiate his contract to stay in the NHL, something that is not currently an option.

“His goal was to stay in the NHL,” Bartlett said. “If there was a way he could have, he would.

“That’s the downside of the inflexibility of the CBA – there’s no ability to renegotiate or for another team to take on a portion of a contract. Financially, you’re well covered, but if your goal is to play in the NHL, you’ve got two hands tied behind your back.”
