Cap hit aside, If they bought out Purcell the owner would still have to pay him. Now that's Edmontons problem.



Sure, but TSN tells that when Tampa traded Purcell for Gagner they didn't know yet that Coyotes were going to get Gagner off their hands. So instead of Purcell their owned would've had to pay for Gagner. The timing of these trades was right after the announcement of the new salary cap (which was lower than what was expected) so you'd think that cap hits are the reason behind these moves and not the actual salaries.

EDM's trade of Sam Gagner to TB for Ted Purcell doesn't necessarily mean Gagner will stay in TB. Buyout a possibility but so is a trade.


So why not buy out Purcell straight away instead of trading for Gagner? Tampa wasn't going to keep Gagner and even after trading him have to retain third of his salary. It seems that Yzerman took a complicated route just to get rid of Purcell. Purcell cap hit was lower than Gagner's so buying Purcell out would've saved them money.

What happened to Trotz wanting to continue living in Nashville? I think he said something like that when he was fired.

Gordie Howe dead? They really seem to have hit their heads too many times. And still there are folks who don't take concussions seriously.

In Topic: Ridiculous SO goal by Athanasiou

08 April 2014 - 08:13 AM

This one wasn't in a skills competition.







Athanasiou scored his team's only goal in the Barrie Colts' 4-1 loss to North Bay in the OHL playoffs but it indeed one for the highlight reels.
