Vinny has the worst contract in the NHL right now.

If he's bought out, I'm definitely interested in signing him.
The thing is, we would need him right now, not just next year. It would be the type of move to put us over in the series since we are at present time one of the best teams in the league right now.

There's 7 years left on his contract, if Tampa could front half of this, it would become more than a fair deal.

Finally losing DD and Bourque is not a big deal in my opinion esp. if you add Vinny.
