NHL general managers don't "bury" $3m. It doesn't happen. It's not going to happen to Huet, it's not going to happen to Kotalik, and it's not going to happen to Cheechoo. Do you have any idea how much money $3,000,000 is, to the Ottawa Senators?

After 11 straight years in the playoffs, the Ottawa Senators failed to qualify last year finishing a disappointing 11th in the Eastern Conference. No playoffs, a $3 million higher payroll and a falling Canadian dollar (since rebounded) caused the Sens to lose money last season for the first time since the NHL resumed in 2005 after the lockout.
Just last season they, as a franchise, lost money.. and you think that they're going to just eat up $3m?
