    Not that I care much about hockey, but I understand why this is big news for those who follow the Bruins. Man...what a mess that whole thing turned out to be...:frusty:

    Reports are that he still doesn't plan to play this season. This has all the earmarks of it being strictly a cap move. Supposedly, the Islanders needed to get above the cap floor.

    Strictly salary cap related. Bruins pick up around 2.8(prorated) in cap relief. And Islanders get about salary floor.

    To be fair, Katie probably didn't pull that picture.

    And at least whoever did come up with that didn't put up a picture of Afailius. :p
