Unless the LTIR rules change then Pronger wont be bought out. Everyone is down on Bryzgalov but whos your goalie if they buy him out after next season?
You would have to have a rock solid plan in place before you let him go and honestly who would be a viable option?
More importantly if Timonen leaves after this season we are going to have a gaping hole on the top 4. Then there is resigning Giroux,Schenn,Couturier and Read.
Probably can offer arbitration to Schenn and Couturier but Holmgren hates arbitration so that likely doesnt happen.
next years offseason is going to be fun, or not so fun depending on how you look at it.
