TSN's NHL section is reporting that the NHL may overturn the trade of LW Dean McAmmond from the Colorado Avalanche to the Calgary Flames. McAmmond was traded by Calgary originally earlier this season with Derek Morris & Jeff Shantz to Colorado in return for Chris Drury & Stephane Yelle and was reacquired by the Flames at the deadline for a 5th round draft pick. The NHL is citing some outdated rule about trading a player before the waiver draft and then getting him back the same season. Sounds bogus to me, but that's the NHL for ya.



The Chase Is On:
8th: Oilers [29-23-8-8] 74pts; 14 games left
14th: Flames [23-31-10-4] 60pts; 14 games left
Flames must win 7 more games than the Oilers do to make playoffs
Any combination of 7 Oilers wins or Flames losses eliminates them from the playoffs

Okay, here's the deal.

The Calgary Flames send a 5th round draft pick to the Colorado Avalanche for LW Dean McAmmond. The Flames pay part of the salary and whatnot, but McAmmond cannot play a game for the Flames this season (with 13 games remaining). The hell?

Ah well, at least we get to keep McAmmond...

It is actually a very good rule put in the books because of something teams used to do years ago.

They would trade a player to a poor team before the waiver draft for a draft pick and then have the team trade him back after the draft for the same draft pick. The poor team would get an extra late round draft pick in return.

I don't like it but teams abused the system and that is why it is place.
