MM crying he has to trim payroll. I think he's more concerned with trimming the logjam on the roster.

MM has the right approach by saying he has to trim payroll. What is he suppose to say?

I want to trade some of my expensive trash!

what he's supposed to do is put a playoff contender on the ice,keeping this yr's attendance up for Wang's Nets bid,while trying to set the team up for post-2004 salary cap.

Aucoin+Hamrlik are 2-3 yrs older then Niinimma,closer to walking away as ufas,which is why i think one of them would be dealt before Niinimaa..

Isles have already admitted shopping Peca/Parrish/Cairns/Timander at one point or another during the last 6 months.trading Peca is a gamble at a time when Wang's trying to sell himself to the NBA as the best possible owner of the NJ Nets.Wang's smart enough to see the parrallels between Milsteins/Redskins and Wang/Nets.

Martinek makes about $800,000 and with Aucoin and Hamrlik rfas this summer,looking for raises,I don't see the Isles trading the cheap Martinek.
