from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,
So, instead of insisting that Sutter sit out a year while still under contract, Lamoriello decided to move on. He granted Flames GM Darryl Sutter permission to sign Brent with no strings attached.
“You know once you give consent, because of the new rules in the NHL there is no recourse and no compensation,” Lamoriello told me Tuesday afternoon. “I certainly believe there should be compensation in situations like this for all the obvious reasons, but there isn’t. That’s a league rule and you accept it.”
Lamoriello doesn’t believe Brent Sutter had this type of a defection in mind during last season.
