The NHL clarified the use of long-term injury relief and roster management with regard to the injured list, specifically with regards to Toronto’s and as well as Chicago’s (allergic reaction to equipment).

“We’ve gone through a thorough review process,” commissioner Gary Bettman said. “If we think there’s an issue, we investigate, look into it, and, if necessary, do our own evaluation.”

Some GMs wanted a more thorough explanation of why those teams were allowed to receive the benefit they did, even though the NHL already ruled those transactions were salary cap compliant.

“It’s not to call into question anyone’s integrity or judgment,” Daly said. “It’s to make sure the CBA’s integrity is maintained. All the issues that were raised were looked into.”

Bettman followed that up by asking GMs to stop complaining through the media: “All they have to do is call us and we’ll answer.”

I’m surprised more teams don’t take advantage of some of that stuff.  You know if chicago made the playoffs, Hossa was coming back with brand new gear.
