One of our CBA/contract guys posted a couple of days ago that you are wrong about 1st rd picks being treated differently - IIRC. Not going to name him because I'd probably get it wrong and have 2 guys mad at me. I think it is a buyout arrangement. My guess is that the amount is predetermined and no time is required to arrange it. But I can't swear to any of this. Whatever the system, I'm pretty sure that if the Jets wanted to send him to the AHL it would have been done by now unless I am mistaken and it can't be done. In that case just send him home. He is a 19 YO very late 2nd rd pick with an awkward skating style. I don't believe he is that close to having actually made the team out of TC. If he was, then he would be playing. So how big an issue can it be?
