Peter MCNabb made a bizarre claim on an Avs broadcast that trades could be made after the trade deadline but that the player just would not be playoff eligible. Is this true? I have never heard of this....and I can think of plenty of teams that would pay for a small hole plug until the playoffs. Especially in a big market where playoff games equal revenue.....Toronto.

I hear people say well that's just not motivating...bullshit.....if I can play for a guaranteed contract next season based on 4 weeks of play who cares...its like being a contractor!

Apparently this is true.

Toronto's a good place to do it because Muzzin got hurt the day after the deadline and should be back for the playoffs, so you could plug that hole.

Baseball has a similar rule, and I've seen it used there before when teams lose pitchers to injury.

Yeah there was a bit of confusion about this on twitter recently as I think DownGoesBrown thought they weren't eligible for the rest of the season.
