I'll grant you Luongo and Salo and even throw in Berard but as for Brewer, I wouldn't exactly call Hamrlik, a #1 DMan, nothing.[/QUOTE]

No a #1 D-man isn't nothing but there is not much seperating them on the ice.

Hamrlik 29 years old, $3.6 mill

Brewer 24 years old, $2.5 mill

With Niniimaa gone Brewer picks up more icetime so his numbers can only go up. He has 5 years on Hamrlik and is cheaper. Is 12 points worth $1.1 million? (8 pts on the PP which Brewer seldom played on last season) So now we're down to a difference of 3 points. This still represents a miscalculation by Mad Mike who let him go too early as with Bertuzzi and potentially Isbister.
