Doesn't happen. Shero will not buy out Glass at 1.1m, then sign Hendricks at 925k. It just doesn't make any sense. Glass will cost 726k to buy out. Plus, he hasn't been as bad as all of you guys have made out.

Orpik will NOT be bought out. He's played pretty well, has a unique skill set and is on a good/great contract. If Shero doesn't see a place for him in the lineup going forward, he'll have no issues trading him. With the rookies we have pushing for icetime, I can't see Eaton retained... unless Orpik gets moved and doesn't bring back an NHL D.
