File under: WTF?Renaud Lavoie of RDS is reporting Chris Kelly's contract has being rejected by the NHL. NHL reject Bruins Chris Kelly 4 years / 12 million contract. Cap issues for the Bruins right now. — Renaud P Lavoie (@RenLavoieRDS) June 14, 2012 This makes no ******* sense since Chiarelli said the Bruins and Kelly have just agreed to the new contract in principle and won't file it until 7/1 because of some weird-ass cap rules. The fact that this is an issue is dumb.Per CSNNE:Kelly will net a four-year deal worth $12 million that can’t officially be signed until July due to “payroll tagging” issues within the salary cap. "Payroll tagging" sounds like one of the dumbest rules since the delay of game penalty, but can the league reject a contract that hasn't been officially filed yet? Sounds like Lavoie needs some new sources.Or maybe @thetonyjones is on to something: @JustinDOY I suspect what happened is the Bruins tried to file it, the NHL said no you...
PLAYERS: Chris Kelly
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
