According to the SportsNet list of predicted favourites to be bought out in the
Anaheim - Bryan Allen ($3.5 million cap hit until 2014-15)
Calgary - Matt Stajan ($3.5 million cap hit until 2013-14)
Chicago - Steve Montador ($2.75 million cap hit until 2014-15)
Colorado - Jan Hedja ($3.25 million cap hit until 2014-15)
Columbus - nobody
Dallas - Erik Cole ($4.5 million cap hit until 2014-15) - note, DFF, that SportsNet isn't paying their editors enough to spot that 'Erik' is spelled with a k and not a c
Detroit - Mikael Samuelsson ($3 million for 2013-14)
Edmonton - Kevin Lowe ... uh, I mean, Shawn Horcoff ($5 million cap hit until 2014-15)
LA - nobody
Minnesota - Dany Heatley ($7 million cap hit until 2013-14)
Nashville - Paul Gaustad ($3.25 million cap hit until 2015-16)
Phoenix - nobody. I have to include the write-up: "Let’s make this clear: This isn’t happening. The Coyotes can barely afford to pay their own players. The idea of them paying a player not to play for their club is beyond logic. There’s a reason they have all that cap space."
San Jose - Martin Havlat ($5 million cap hit until 2014-15)
St. Louis - Alex Pietrangelo
Ha ha! No, they aren't buying out anyone.
Vancouver - Keith Ballard ($4.2 million cap hit until 2014-15)
And for the
Boston - nobody, %#$!*&&&ing nobody!!!
Buffalo - Ville Leino ($4.5 million cap hit until 2016-17)
Carolina - Tuomo Ruutu ($4.75 million cap hit until 2015-16)
Florida - Ed Jovanovski ($4.1 million cap hit until 2014-15)
Montreal - Tomas Kaberle ($4.25 million cap hit until 2013-14)
NJ - Anton Volchenkov ($4.25 million cap hit until 2015-16)
NYI - Rick DiPietro ($3.57 million cap until 2020-21. SERIOUSLY!)
NYR - Brad Richards ($6.66 million cap until 2019-20)
Ottawa - nobody
Yay, us!!! - Ilya Brygzalov ($5.66 million cap until 2019-20). I think this is rather dumb, as Briere is the logical first choice.
That other NHL city in Pennsylvania - Marc-Andre Fleury ($5 million cap until 2014-15)
Tampa Bay - Vincent Lecavalier ($7.73 million cap hit until 2019-20)
Toronna - John-Michael Liles ($3.87 million cap hit until 2015-16)
Washington - Brooks Laich ($4.5 million cap hit 2016-17.)
Which, if any, of these big-ticket underachievers might interest Paul Holmgren? I'd be inclined to kick the tires with Laich (who put up 149 points in the 3 seasons before this one), Ruutu and Heatley.
