Let's hope Kenny's not paying attention.

There is a reason these guys are getting bought out. Stay away!

I would pass on Kaberle, but it is very interesting and intriguing to see that teams are already announcing the buyout candidates.  I hope something of value pops up that could help us.

The amnesty buyouts have to be used between the end of the SC finals and July 4. So yes this week will be interesting to us fans, and painful for a lot of players and their families.

 

BTW I am hoping TB buys out Vinny LeCav. Would love to see him as our 2nd line C.

Kaberle is softer than melted butter.  I would vomit if I even saw him in a Wings shirt let alone a jersey.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

His career has gone downhill after leaving the Leafs but whatever, the guy has made a lot of money so I am sure he can enjoy early retirement.

Heatley?

 

Also, Philly's capgeek already reflects Briere's buyout and they are still $1.4M over the cap...wonder who is next?

That's without Pronger on IR.  Put him on LTIR and they're under the cap.......just.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Is there a page some place that shows all the buyouts in one place?

Kabs will go for 2.5 or so, nothing we need. 

 

BUT....

 

I am liking that we're seeing some bigger names pop up now, that means more activity....nearly every team should be using at least one buyout. More churn, should inspire more trades....should be interesting 10 days from now.

Pretty much this...

 

And to think he won a Cup with the Bruins just a few short years ago - although he didn't stand out, and was very average.

 

He'll probably wind up with the Isles, or Panthers.

I honestly see him making league minimum or just around 1M per year... was never superb but has definately taken a turn for the worst

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting forwards, then dangles 2 defenceman, and follows it up by doing "the datsyuk" on his victims, then calmly skates back to his bench ,and goes home to his girlfriend back in the motherland.

Our defense does need a little bit of a boost, but I'm not sure.  His passing skills would do great here, but I don't know about the rest of his game.  Teams are so desperate for defensemen right now though, I bet someone throws a decent amount of cash his way, so its really a non-issue for us.
