He can take part of his salary in deffered payments, spread very far apart.
He played quite well the other night in his return the other night against Dallas. Maybe the way to deal with Georges is to make him a healthy scratch 8 games out of every ten to get him motivated for the remaining 2. That way you'd at least get effort from Georges in 16 games a year, which would be an improvement. Of course, that wouldn't be viable unless Georges was willing to pro-rate his contract to the amount of games he actually appears in.
