Think about what you just said...honestly. Again I am in no way saying that Simmons is true or not (I have zero knowledge of the guy's history), but your post makes no sense.
Were it accurate, Florida would likely attempt to include their cap dumps, necessitating buyouts when we may need to exercise those options elsewhere. For instance, maybe they insist Jovanovski is taken. Why in the world do we want him? Nothing immediately becomes a better alternative than an albatross contract with no incentives. The waiver threat is also just that, a threat, or rather, a negotiating ploy to put pressure on Luongo to open his list.

Bryan Murray was content on letting Heatley rot on the sidelines until San Jose finally added Michalek.
