Really thats all that should matter to us. The NHL doesnt live by our contracts, neither should we follow theirs.
I don't disagree but the league GMs voted not to make any changes until after the season.
So based on how we've been applying the rule - Seabrook like the others can stay for this season.

I'm highlighting if people aren't happy with that, we can re-visit the decision not to make any changes this season. Or we ride it out and fix this in the summer.
