Aaron Ward put those 2 guys in their places telling them they were wrong and why.
Oh yeah, and the 2 weeks when both Pratt and Jake was off for holidays during Christmas, that was when my radio was stuck on TSN 1040.

The Kings are so fucking bush league.

Donald Fehr and Newport Sports and Entertainment are going to tear Lombardi a new asshole. The inevitable lawsuit is going to cost more than the buyout would've, guaranteed.

As of right now, Richards' contract is considered void. They owe him nothing, no cap hit, no cap penalty (edit: or not, see below).

It won't stick, however.

Edit: Cap Recapture Penalty apparently applies

pretty broad term that material breach.

could they have a case if it was related to substance abuse and/or Stoll?
I'm not too familiar with terms surrounding a voided contract.

Substance abuse isn't considered a material breach of contract as the NHL and NHLPA have a substance abuse program to help players.

Quote:
Material breach is a contract law term which refers to a failure of performance under the contract which is significant enough to give the aggrieved party the right to sue for breach of contract. When there has been a material breach, the aggrieved party is also relieved of a duty of further performance under the contract. However, a minor divergence from the terms of the contract is not a material breach. A material breach is one that is significant enough to destroy the value of the contract.

A lawsuit for material breach of contract is a civil action and the remedies awarded are designed to place the injured party in the position they would be in if not for the breach. Remedies for contractual breaches are not designed to punish the breaching party.

The following circumstances are important to determine whether a failure to render or to offer performance is material:

1. The extent to which the injured party shall be deprived of the benefit or profit which s/he reasonably expected;

2. The extent to which the injured party can be adequately remedied or compensated for the part of that benefit of which s/he shall be deprived;

3. The extent to which the party failing to perform or to offer to perform shall suffer forfeiture;

4. The likelihood that the party failing to perform or to offer to perform shall correct such failure, taking account of all the circumstances including any reasonable assurances; and

5. The extent to which the behavior of the party failing to perform or to offer to perform is according to the standards of good faith and fair dealing.
Quote:
Substantial failure in the performance of a contract, significant enough to release the aggrieved party from its obligation and accrues to it the right to sue for damages.

Someone was saying on the TSN comments that Richards has suffered multiple concussions throughout his career.

Take that for what its worth, but the NHL is already being sued over this issue.

he was asked to stay in la during the summer and train with team staff. he refused, thats technically a breach.
if he claims to have injury, he has been boating, fishing etc in the off season which could all worsen an injury

Zac fucking Rinaldo? A goon fetches just slightly less than Eddie Lack? Wow.

And it doesn't explain the Robin Lehner deal.

That's not a material breach unless they can prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that the training regimen he followed was so drastically detrimental to his performance that it was substantially detrimental to the team's performance. On top of that, 99% of players in the NHL follow their own summer training regimen and the NHLPA would file a grievance if a team ever attempted to force a player into a specific training regimen.

I have no doubt the Kings have something up their sleeve, but the timing of it is extremely suspect. Why wait until the 2nd-to-last day before free agency to do it? Why come out YESTERDAY slamming Richards in the news, saying it was the worst mistake Lombardi has ever made? Why make zero mention of it yesterday, spring it as a surprise today?

Unless Richards did something astronomically stupid, there's just absolutely no way the NHLPA and Richards' agency will allow this. It would set an extremely dangerous precedent.

Honestly, how much better of a goalie is Corey Schneider than Lack? 15%? Get 8th overall for him and Lehner gets a first and we get a single digit chance of playing an NHL game? Fuck
If lack had another 2 years on his contract at 4M per, he'd probably return a first round pick also . As it stands lack can walk away from Carolina and test the Ufa market after next year and Carolina would have nothing to show for it, who would want to give up anything substantial for that ?

As we see in dubnyk, you only need to perform well for half a season and you'll get paid well for the next 6 years. The leverage is knowing that some gm will almost always overpay in money and term come Ufa time .
