Literally minutes before a story FNN had been working hit the site on about the corruption in Ohio, the league beat me to it and terminated the entire management team in Columbus. For weeks I have been publicly complaining about the forfeits that the Jackets were taking because they were too busy playing in a lesser league and not having people ready. I also had been warning people of the impending issues caused by putting a player on IR and then using that cap to fill roster and not having the space to bring player back. Well after enough digging Entry, the player on IR was approached about his status and told FNN and the league that he never even requested IR and had been available for every game since joining the Blue Jackets.
Hopefully the message is clear here, IR is not a tool to save cap, it is for when people are not able to play there 2/wk due to personal issues
