Add to that his torment of Luongo and he just made the whole cup run a way easier.
I love Buf and would love to have him back on the Hawks again. In a cast full of characters on the 09/10 roster, Buf was the biggest character of the bunch - both literally and figuratively. Aside from Kane's winning goal, Buf provided my most favorite memories of that playoff run and the two that rise to the top of many are the rag-dolling of Pronger and the Captain Morgan salute to the Vancouver fans after scoring AGAIN on Luongo.
BUT - the Hawks simply can't afford another long term $5M+ salary - can't do it and have any chance of having decent depth players on the team.
