=======================================

it means that when the season is over we could just walk away from lindros and not bother to pick up the 10.25 million dollar contract.his salary is al nearly paid so he would be cheap.

Eric Lindros' contract expires this summer with a club option. He's very desirable to a playoff bound team who could rent him and then walk away before the next CBA begins.

Alex Kovalev is also UFA this summer as is the cheap-to-keep Martin Rucinsky. Vlad Malakhov is UFA this summer and plans to retire. His salary would be almost fully paid off after March to rent for the playoffs.
