  1. You basically need to have two players going through arbitration. That could still happen with the Wings, but not likely.
  2. I read it. The only way we can do that is reassign under the Redden rule, but Sammy is over 35. http://www.capgeek.com/faq/what-s-a-35-plus-contract Meaning, we only get $100,000 of cap relief. That does not conflict with the article you posted. I am just pointing out that we are pretty much stuck wit Sammy's contract, but not under 35 guys.
  3. Just to clarify, the old CBA had an August buyout period for teams having gone to arbitration with at least one player. It appears to have been eliminated in this CBA, but, even if still in exisltence, would not help the with the Sammy Sit. Not what the link I provided states, nor the latest CBA
  4. Not in the latest CBA http://www.capgeek.com/faq/how-do-buyouts-work Ordinary and compliance buyouts have the same periods.
  5. http://www.capgeek.com/new-cba/ The buyout period has ended. Moreover, as an over 35 player, the savings from the Redden Rule are minimal for Sammy, but still a savings.
  6. I don't think he waited. He tried to sign Brunner, but Brunner and his agent dictated this. If ya want to dance, you need a dance partner.
  7. The buyout period for this year has expired. Teams can only exercise buyouts between the end of the playoffs and July 1, which is why Sammy's injury situation was critical. By the time the next buyout period begins, Sammy will be UFA.
  8. Kulfan believes Brunner's number is closer to $4.0 mil... "Hitting the free-agent market Friday, Brunner is expected to find a team this week that will sign him for a multi-year contract worth close to $4 million annually.""

  9. My take is totally opposite. If the Wings did not know this was coming down, it would be a major industry scumbag move and they would be publicly complaining about being raided. I think it was a win/win move wishing well to all.
  10. Meh Wings North American scouting has been ok to good, nothing earth shattering. With the way this has been handled, it would not surprise me that there were plenty of winks and nods. Nil gets an upgrade to his team with guys he knows and Holland gets to breathe some fresh air into the scouting leadership, particularly N. America. The only thing that puzzles me s that McDonnell just got a promotion and then departs, all of which seems to have happened about the same time. Only thing that explains it is more winks and nods to put bullets in Nils arsenal to up the compensation ante. Holland eats it and everyone wins.
  11. I don't disagree on Vinny, but the reason he is not here is the term of the contract. Vinny is already in visible decline; he is a candidate for post 35 rapid decline, IMO. And, the Flyers will be stuck with that contact for three years in which the probability of Vinny being a shell of even what he is now is fairly high. When Vinny and his agent insisted on a 5 year term, I knew we were not going to be in it and am happy about it.
  12. Personally, I think the need for grit on the fourth line will push Eaves out, and the result will be..

  13. Weis also is not afraid to shoot, something that terrified Fils at times.
  14. Well said
  15. signed

    It is now in his salary. Either way, they are counting it as a current year hit, so the upper number remains 4.8 mil or so - I just calculated it. It does not take too many roster moves to fit everyone in and re-sign Brunner if they want him, IMO. Now it is back in bonuses.
