I mean, why would it be against the rules? Any team who wanted to sign Hoffman had all off-season to do so.
One final note on Hoffman, I checked with the league and the NHL is fine with what’s transpiring in St. Louis because nothing officially locks the player to the Blues, nor the club to Hoffman if either side changes their mind ahead of Jan. 13. So no rules were broken here.
And I mean, while there’s obviously a verbal arrangement between the Blues and Hoffman, nothing can stop another team from swooping in over the next few weeks and offering a deal that the player simply couldn’t refuse.
