By the way, have you guys noticed that Lou swears that he will buy NO ONE out of their Devils contracts? Interesting....
If the Devils retain Niedermayer, they'll find a way to compete for the Atlantic title. Even if they don't re sign him, they'll still be a thorn in a lot of teams' sides. They must really be intenet on resigning him though, because I don't hear much about NJ going after any replacements.

I can understand why some GM's don't do buyouts. For many, paying a player to play somewhere else just doesn't make sense. The Flyers really had no choice with LeClair and Amonte though - wish they would have done it with Brashear.
