when the dust settles... sadly, we will find teams willing to take lucic and seguin off our hands even at 6 mill per year. we are not going to find anyone willing to take boychuck or kelly or peverly off our hands though.

It probably is best for us if the season gets locked out... that the owners turn to hardball and insist on some buyouts and a rollback for next year. Coming back without buyouts/rollback is going to lead to our team being decimated and eventually having guys like kelly/peverly playing second line cause we wont be able to afford more then 2-3 guys like Bergeron/Lucic/Seguin/Krecji/Horton/Marchand still being around
The league is littered with those sorts of contracts. And at the end of the day that is on the GM's and Owners.
