I have no problem with the fine. He agressivily challenged the league and got punished for it.
Mike could you please tell me who on the current IR, either day to day or 9 game you feel are paper cuts?[url=http://www.riderville.com/siteimages/Depth%20Chart-GM%205%20vs%20Toronto.pdf]http://www.riderville.com/siteimages/De ... oronto.pdf[/url]
I would go with Best, Getzlaf and Shalogan. Certainly not the massive numbers that I have heard from some people.
btw, something I want to look into more, but evidentally teams are only required to pay 60% of the salary to players on the injury and disabled list, but the Riders choose to pay 100%. Now I know for a fact that this is the case for the disabled list, not sure about the injured.
Disabled list players do count against the cap and if the team chose to pay 100%, that 100% goes against the cap. Thus the Riders could have saved money against the cap by only paying the players agreement amount. This year, both Washington and Dominguez have been on the disabled. Last year, I cannot remember who all were on it, but Szarka was when he cut his hand.
