    Stupid, but a a rule nonetheless. I guess they figured the "possible" fine was not a big enough deal to respect that rule.

    Flyers violated CBA by travelling on Boxing Day

    The Philadelphia Flyers appear to have violated the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement by travelling during the recent holiday break, Sportsnet has learned.

    The team departed for Nashville at 8:24 p.m. ET on Dec. 26, according to their flight log on FlightAware, during what is considered a restricted period for team activity in the CBA.

    Article 16.5 (b) in that document states: “December 24, Christmas Day, and December 26 shall be off-days for all purposes, including travel.”

    The Flyers refused comment through a spokesman when asked about the flight. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly did not respond to an email asking whether the team was under investigation.

    ....

    It’s unclear what kind of penalty, if any, the Flyers could face from the NHL.

    ...

    There isn’t any precedent for this specific transgression. CBA violations have been relatively few and far between in recent years, although the Los Angeles Kings were fined $100,000 on Dec. 2 for allowing suspended defenceman Slava Voynov to skate with the team.
