You're crazy to amnesty his contract over Bryz and it is extremely short cited.

Yeah he makes a bunch of money, but Briere contributes and earns his pay. Pronger we can LTIR and use his money so it's really no harm/no foul. Bryz is a buffoon who we are stuck with for EIGHT YEARS.

Think about that. If we had signed Robert Esche to an 8 year deal in 2004 we would have just gotten him off the books. Do you realize how long 8 years is? Why in gods green earth would you want him in net for 8 years and holding our net and hope/dream hostage?

I would seriously consider Wade Reddening' Bryzgalov if he duplicates this years effort next season (would take Ed to recognize his humongous big mistake)
