Any taker? Redden, Finger, Walker, Leighton, Huet, Reinprecht, etc.
Players who have played in Europe or in the AHL last year, have one way contract and have not been bought out. Any taker?
Wade Redden D NYR - 6,5M$ cap hit, 3y
Cristobal Huet G Chi - 5,625M$, 1y
Jeff Finger D Tor - 3,5M$, 1y
Steven Reinprecht F Flo - 2,05M$, 1y
Matt Walker D Phi - 1,7M$, 2y
Michael Leighton G Phi - 1,55M$, 1y
Johan Backlund G Phi - 0,8M$, 1y
or is it mostly that he has an unattractive contract for what he brings to the table?
always thought he got a bum wrap just cuz of his salary
his contract is pretty bad.... i think if he got his legs going he might be a alright nhler. Sat a lot....put in the lineup/on the ice randomly, looked rusty and unready for nhl speed. (he got the opportunity, but didnt stick)
Of the list from the OP, how many of those names where Glen Sather's mistakes???
Really, some people just can't stop. We know he makes mistakes, but based on this list, he isn't the only one now is he?
It's a joke, I'm not gonna get pissed if you say Sherman is a cheapass with commitment issues. Sather's a great trader, but a terrible FA signer. Seriously, if he got that together you guys would be in a great position, he always seems to buy low in the trade market and buy high on the free agency.
Finger is a serviceable bottom pairing dman. He'll never be mistaken for a great defender, but you can throw him on the ice for 14-17 minutes a night and not be any more worried about him than anyone else you'd put in that spot.
The real problem is that he's overpaid by more than double.
If a team that wants to reach the floor wants him though, go for it, we'll take a 7th rounder to clear the salary.
