Darwined

Players getting Darwined was part of the plan all along. Dead money, non-performing money is saved by the owners. Review the 2012-13 contracts in terms of performance.

If a goalie had a top 3 contract amongst NHL goalies but ranked 25th in terms of goalie performance the team owner is happy not to pay him while grooming his replacement in the minors.

Likewise for the other positions.

Enforcers are another group. Out of favour in today's NHL but contracts remain valid. Darwined this season while their 3rd/4th line replacement gets experience in the minors on a two-way contract.

Thin the herd. Get rid of the non-productive elements or at least mitigate the costs.
