For the people who want to see Horc bought out this week.... really? Are you serious with that?

It will be June 2014, assuming that moving compliance buyouts up to now hasn't changed that. That is when his final year will impede contract extensions for other, more important players. Maybe this June if they have a trade option that puts them over the cap.

Bulin is not an NHL calibre Goaltender over an 82 game campaign. He tires too quickly, and I think it's down to old age and body chemistry (he literally loses weight every game in sweat)

But, I agree, in a short season with 10-15 starts, he'll probably be fine. Two years in a row he started hot and fell off. If he doesn't, it's nice to have Yann Danis in the organization.
