it is expressly forbidden in the CBA that a player should be employed by a team and work for the league at the same time.
It sounds like you're saying Flyers are fine to keep him on the payroll if he chooses not to retire - I agree.
If he's never playing hockey again, a condition presumably covered on the LTIR -- then it is also fine is he takes this NHL job.
What does "expressly forbidden to be employed by an NHL team and work for the league" mean?
Does LTIR not qualify as employment? Or does "work for the league" not qualify is being employed by the league which Pronger IS.
Which position not defined as employment?
Just so I understand - how are these two positions not mutually exclusive? I'm missing a part of the rules I think.
