I'm bummed it didn't work out for him over here. Hope he has a great career back home/in Europe.

You sure about that? I thought that once a player clears unconditional waivers their contract is terminated in the form of a buyout and the 160K saved was how much that was left for the season on the cap hit since he was on a NHL contract. I believe he is still paid the 160K it just doesn't count against the teams cap and frees up a 50 man roster spot. I might be mistaken though. I haven't fully read over all the new CBA aspects from last year.

The player mutually agrees to walk away from the contract in this case. It's a no-fault divorce. They did the same thing with Ritola.

Tim is right, the first thing I read about this was apparently wrong.

Helenius signed a contract with Jokerit for the 2014-15 season. Landed squarely on his feet. Good luck, Riku.

Wish him the best. If his previous experience is any indication he'll be able to make a nice living in Europe.

Hope it works out well for him. Thanks to him for the contributions made to the Lightning organization.

NHLPA appeals Tampa Bay's termination of Syracuse Crunch goalie Riku Helenius' contract
Quote:
The Lightning terminated Helenius' one-way, $650,000 NHL deal in February because of breach of contract. The organization did not specify the reason for the decision. The release cost Helenius about $160,000.
***
Grossman did say in cases like this it's up to the NHLPA to decide whether to file a grievance. It's unclear whether Grossman and Tampa Bay tried to work out a deal that would have resolved the dispute short of this step.

***
The case will now go to an arbitrator who is hired jointly by the NHL and the players association. In some instances, cases have taken years to work their way through this process.

That's so ridiculous considering it's what the player wanted and it worked out for him, but the unions gotta do what it's gotta do I guess. Don't want to set a precedent for future cases I suppose.
