Buyout:
Antti Miettinen (500K-500K)
http://capgeek.com/buyout_calculator...06&buyout_d=15

Resign:
Slater 4.2M/3 (1.6M-1.5M-1.1M)
Glass 2.85M/3 (1.050M-900K-900K)
Mason 2.8M/2 (1.6M-1.2M)
Kane 4.0M/1 (4.0M)
Fehr 1.1M/1 (1.1M)
Pavelec 13.2M/4 (2.8M-2.9M-3.5M-4M)
Mach9 850K/1 (850K)
I agree generally with all of this - but why front-load Glass and Slater's contracts?

Why: Hainsey is the perfect fit for the Islanders high cap hit, low salary, left handed all fits what they need. The Jets save 3M and can continue to add to the depleted farm system with the 34th pick and another likely high 2nd rounder.
I think we'd be lucky to get NYI's 2nd for Hainsey.

Blake Comeau-RFA-sign 2.9M/2 (1.6M-1.3M)

Why: Has not worked out in Calgary played on the 4th line most of the time unlikely the Flames give him a QO may as well get a pick for him. Jets get a high upside winger with decent size who can PK and has a track record of being able to play tough minutes, also a RH shot.
I think Comeau might be done. I don't know if the Jets want to take a chance on him.

Tim Connolly (4.00M)
Matthew Lombardi (3.5M)
Korbinian Holzer-RFA-sign 1.9M/2 (.9M-1.0M)

Why: Burkie is in a bind and this move helps him clean up his own mess, unlike with Finger these are both contracts ether signed or acquired by Burke, I see no way he can berry them in the minors especially with a new ownership group. While he might be able to move Connolly on his own Lombardi has no value so by taking him Jets get a discount on Connolly. Connolly is another guy that can eat the tough minutes he is another RH shot and is a UFA after this year.
You lost me! I don't see how this makes any sense for Winnipeg. The Jets are doing Burke a favour - why pay through the nose for it. Connolly is done, Lombardi is 30 and in decline, both are overpaid...how good is this Holzer, anyway? Couldn't we just trade Klingberg or Postma for him straight up?

Why: Garrison has for 2 years now played some of the toughest competition in the NHL and done quite well with it, FLA seems willing to let him go as well. His offense is not going to stick at 15+ goals but 4.1M for a true shutdown D with size is still a solid deal he finalizes the top 4 and 2nd PP unit.
I like Garrison. This would be a nice pickup. I imagine we're not the only ones looking at him. You'd think his first preference would be to stay in Florida now that they're on the rise...

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $55,055,459; BONUSES: $912,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $9,244,542

Tons of salary room to give Toby, Wheeler, Little, Burmi, and Kane raises as well as lots of financial flexibility for the 2012/13 UFA class. 8.25M in cap space opening after the 2012/13 season as well with Connolly and Lombardi off the books, may even be able to move Lombardi out during the season for a pick. Leaves the Jets with 1st, 4 2nds no 3rds in 2013 draft.

Still need to add a 1st line C and a 2nd line RW but this group looks a lot stronger to me than this years.
Interesting stuff. We just pry Duchene out of Colorado, maybe send NYI some of that talent you had allocated for the Leafs to get Okposo out of there and all the Jets' problems are solved!
