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

Huet with only a year left and a Tallon signing has a good shot at ending up in Florida as a part timer to help Markstrom. That's just what I feel.....

I expect a good number of these types of players to move around. Quite a few teams need to get to the floor, and there aren't enough big UFA to go around.

Is Matt Walker bad, or just overpaid?

I can see some one taking a shot with Redden
and really Finger's contract isnt that terrible.
he's definitely reliable.

i liked him on the leafs. hell, i'd take him back w a new contract after next season.

Colorado or Florida need to take a chance on Huet. Develop your young kids and just take Huet one for one year.

He has a tendency to skate the wrong way towards the puck, i.e. if it gets shot around the boards from the right to the left he'll skate to the right.

Colorado will take ALL of them. And still be under the cap.

We can rename ourselves the "Colorado Glen Sather's Mistakes!"

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)

He seems like a alright guy....

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.

Heck I'd take "Future Considerations" for many of those higher priced guys....and then call you back and say I think in the future you owe me one game used puck.

He'd make a solid 5th/6th defenseman on most teams...if his contract was 1-1.5M.

Pretty dependable in his own zones, hits, blocks shots a ton of shots, and chips in a surprising amount of goals (8 in 72 games in 07/08 and 6 in 66 games in 08/09).

What the heck, Tallon took Campbell back, why not Huet as well. Talk about an easy route to the cap floor.

You can always sign a guy who might get 1M in most places to a 1 year over inflated contract

With HF mentality in regards to the rise in the salary cap, Leighton, Walker and Reinprecht are practically playing at league minimum

Spacek for Reinprecht?

By the way, why doesn't Reinprecht appear on the Panthers roster. I mean with his 2M cap hit, he could help the Panthers reach the floor.

good bottom pairing guy
obviously doesnt have the skill to contribute up front really, but can block and hit and works hard

it was mostly the contract that did him in, plus crowding on the Leafs' D
