New CBA Means Snow's Exclusive Negotiating Window Ends 6/25 On Boyle

New York Islander Fan Central | 6/16/2014 05:10:00 AM |
That's the date teams can now speak with all pending free agents in the new CBA.

The days of showing up at midnight at players homes on 7/1 are long gone. 

The rules make clear no one can be signed until 7/1 unless the team has the rights to that player. 

If Snow wants to get his pick back for Boyle, and another team wants exclusive negotiating rights before 6/25, a trade has to be made realistically in a few days.

In short it's a trade for a nine day window now.
