Per Bob McKenzie...

BUF has initiated compliance buyout procedures on Christian Ehrhoff. Not official just yet but BUF has begun the process.

Presuming paperwork on d-man Ehrhoff processed as expected, that's two offensive threats - SJ Marty Havlat bought out - added to UFA list.

I'm sure @capgeek will have details but BUF obviously feared potential cap recapture penalties if Ehrhoff retired before contract expired.

Here is our top D. Better and more completed player than Niskanen... he's not righty but now you can go with Gilbert type of D without trading away kids. Great news for the Wings

The best news here is that prices just dropped. We might be able to get Niskanen for closer to 4.5-5. If we still choose to go that route.

Here we go, our chance to get a #1 / #2 d-men is right there. Holland absolutely has to try to sign him.

that is a solid D! If Holland did just that, I may forgive him for Hossa...we have the money, not including the Kindl salary dump...

No, they just don't like Germans. Especially left-handed ones.

Why is no one asking why a team who wants to take on bad contracts is buying out a player like Ehrhoff? What's the story?

Cap recapture penalties if he retires on another team. $10m penalty to Buffalo spread across the number of years left on the contract.

I'd really prefer a right handed shot, but Ehrhoff is definitely a better dman than Niskanen and a lot safer choice. I like Niskanen but it has me worried hes a one year fluke.

Here's the actual source and link. 

 

This is a busy time of year in terms of trades/signings/buyouts and there's a lot of rumor and speculation that goes with that.  A proper source and link separates fact from fiction.  Threads without that information will be locked.  It takes two seconds to copy and paste a link.  

 

 

 

BUF has initiated compliance buyout procedures on Christian Ehrhoff. Not official just yet but BUF has begun the process.

Just to be clear, we have something like $15M in cap space. That seems like a lot, and it is, but a good portion of it will be going to the RFA fund (Tatar, Sheahan, and DeKeyser, with some set aside for Nyquist, who may need to Get Paid next summer). Also, some will probably be saved for Alfredsson and of course CLEARY. On top of that, Kenny won't want to be right up against the ceiling, so he'll probably set our upper limit below $69M, which means another one or two million we can't use on a UFA. That means we're looking at a defenseman and maybe Alfie.

It's not just you.  It's been running rampant lately. 

 

 

If someone sees a thread like this with no link in the OP but it's pretty clearly from a good source, help a brother out and paste the link in your post.

That looks really good. With those guys Wings will be in the top 5 defenses in the NHL.
