1,900,000 is far from nothing in the NHL and he's not trade-able. If he was it would have happened already. He can barely crack the Griffins right now. Wouldn't be surprised if his NHL career is done.
Does it count against the cap if he's in the AHL playing?
If he was able to be traded he would have been already. 29 other teams even passed on him for nothing when he had to clear waivers.
Also, I still think it has to be Franzen or Howard bought out. But what do I know about buy-outs.
Also, I've noticed you just follow me around on here and comment on everything I comment on in a negative/disagreeing way. That's fun for you isn't it? Did you go to any games last year? Any playoff games?
