sadly, yes.

many in capdom do not want to see the jarg get an award, for that very reason.

IIRC, the option is a "player" option, in the sense he MUST win a major award in order for it to kick in.

no award, no option, meaning after this season he becomes a UFA.

on that subject, i read some reports sather was looking to deal him, this past feb, for the right price. obviously that didnt happen.

do you all feel there's a potential for him to be traded, this season, in order to help the cap situation, and get a decent return?

for example, look at what philly got for a broken down forsberg.
