It's SCAPEGOAT. Repeat and spellcheck: SCAPEGOAT.

Also, we have more than enough cap space to accomodate a 8-9m Perry next season with Gionta in the lineup. We just have to NO sign Gionta in 2014 summer when his contract expires.



Who cares that he is an "overpaid 3rd liner"? The more depth the better. Gionta is not producing in our current Top6, but he is hardly a liability to this team and helps Plek shutdown top opposition.
We're in a salary cap world.

5M for a guy who'll be on the 3rd line is way too much. Gallagher might definitely pass him on the depth chart sooner or later.

And quite a few players will need a raise then : Subban, Diaz, Eller.

Keeping Gionta with Perry here, with a big salary, is a big no-no as far as im concerned.
