The Red Wings will try one last time to trade forward Jordin Tootoo during the entry draft in Philadelphia on June 27-28.

If they can't find a deal, they're likely to use their final compliance buyout on Tootoo, who has one year remaining on his contract at $1.9 million.

I kind of feel like these buyouts should be used like "get out of jail free" cards.  Using it on Colo was kind of a waste.  He wasn't vastly under performing for the contract he had.  As for Tootoo, one more year of him playing in the minors and his contract expires.  Its not like Holland is going to spend to the cap this summer anyways.  These buyouts should be used on Scott Gomez like contracts.

This is the last time he can use the buyout. It can't be used after this summer

We don't have a Gomez contract and we have to use or lose it. Bye toots.

We got franzens contract.

And kindls(or was it after the new cba he signed his extension can't remember).

Either way using it on a guy with 1 year led is a waste but O well.

You really want to compare Franzen and Kindl to Gomez? I don't like Kindl, I don't like Franzen, but the similarities are still not their my friend

Franzen is putting up just as many points as he was when he was signed to that contract. Kindl has a very tradeable contract. Gomez was a terrible comparison.

Ahh okay.  I figured this was something each team had till whenever the next CBA happened.  Didn't realize it had to be used this summer or not at all.

Please see my response in the Cleary thread....sum it up: Holland is stupid, needs to be fired and has done NOTHING to help this team since he let Hossa go.  His allegiance to these useless hockey players is sickening and it makes fans shake their heads...I sure hope he gets that ever important "future considerations" on trade day so he can use the damn buyout on a contract worth buying out. Franzen. But we all know, even if Holland is able to trade Tootoo, he will just let the buyout expire.

Not using it on Franzen will bite this team in the ass very soon but whatever had to be expected. Hopefully Tootoo can get a spot somewhere else.

He's putting up the same numbers he did in 2008, why in the world would we buy him out now?

Yes Holland was stupid,  stupid because he listened to BABCOCK and not only resigned Cleary but committed to more than just one year. What a crock of **** that turned into.

If I'm not mistaken, Holland did offer Hossa a contract before he re-signed Franzen but Hossa opted for more money and left for Chicago.  It's not like Franzen ruined the opportunity to keep Hossa.

 

Buying out Tootoo doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to fans, but it's the last time Holland can use a compliance buyout and Tootoo certainly won't be playing with the Wings under Babcock, so why waste $1.9 mil in space and a roster spot in GR?

The wings will have close to 8 - 12 million after re-signings, depending on who is retained. Go find another player who produces at his rate for the same price, spoiler: you can't.

Buying him out saves about a mil on the cap.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Plus you buy out players who are not performing up to their contract. Currently Franzen is.
