Tyutin is the guy that no one talks about who is on an absurd contract--it was absurd under the old CBA and it is more absurd now. In my view, we have too much of this defense locked up for too long...at a time when we have young defenseman who will need playing time.
Looking around at some of the other contracts around Tyutin's, I'm not all that concerned about it. Do we, potentially, have some issues 2 or 3 years from now with roster spots? Likely. Are we going to solve that via the buy out? Highly unlikely.
