I never said we should use it. I said we have the possibility of using it.

That being said since you brought up this subject here's what I think.

Brisebois has played much better this year. He has been a vital part of the habs D this season. I've never seen Breezer play like that because he was never put in the same situation (less pressure, no booing, GMing and coaching staff support, etc). That being said I still believe that Breezer is overpaid at 4M. Under a new CBA this contract could be a killer. I hope that Gainey buy him out and can somehow convince him to resign with us at a cheaper price that would be more representative of his true worth. Kinda like what they did with Kilger last off season. If you use the 1M buyout option and sign him to a new 2M contract (over 2-3 years) you save 1M each year and your payroll is less big so it doesn't hurt as much if there's a cap.

As for Patty Traverse ... hell yeah buy him out !
