Genius!

Give me the center option that:

1. plays first comp in a less than 45% zone start while getiing the post 04 lockout average.
2. high pocession, front net precence center with high GF rate on pp.

3. 2MIn+TOI PK center with top 40 GA.

That do not require a trade or any assets, and are less than 5.5M per year.

I am LMAO!
When you start to look, you will realize how much of a (red calls his son in the 70 show) ...........

you buy out guys you can replace with cheaper cap and younger.

No. And not Eminger either.

Interesting.

The Rangers placed Redden in the minors because that's where he belonged.
Correct.
Along with the back diving contracts.
One of the main drivers for this CBA negotiations was to plug the cap holes to keep all the contract money within the system.

He used a loop hole in the old CBA, that is why they changed it in this CBA. Does he get to get away with it because the Rangers have deep pockets?

We are in a cap system now. Sather knew what he was doing when he signed Redden to the contract.

Well, if I have it right, it appears Rangers can avoid bubble wrap of Redden, buy out 'now', will cost full amount of remaining 2 years but will come off books after this season.

But if Rangers do that, they get nothing in terms of relief if Redden is paid by any other team, i.e., that salary taken vs. what Rangers cap hit is this season.

However, if Rangers could actually find a taker (which is unlikely without benefit of the above meaning only the new negotiated salary between Redden and a new team would apply), then big IF, but if that were the case, the whole Redden salary cap headache becomes that other team's problem.

However, we would obviously have to pay them to take this problem off our hands.

So the question is which is cheaper?

Buy out Redden now, and have one buy out remaining which cannot be used until next year? {Or is that not the case?}

Or move him if there is a taker, depending upon the cost of such a bribe is?

Seems like now a buy out may be in order.

Sorry if this was answered (don't have time to read the whole thread), but is this accelerated amnesty buyout in addition to the 2 that teams can use in the summer, or does it take the place of one of them if a team uses it before the season?

Also, I would think that this isn't just for Redden and Gomez, but for every team? (wouldn't be fair otherwise)

It counts towards the allotment.
If I am not mistaken, the accelerated buyout costs the team 100% of the contract and has full cap hit this season, if they waited till the off season, they would save 1/3rd of the salary and no cap ht for 2013/14 season

Gomez to the Canucks, I'm certain of it, I'm giving it my personal C-5 stamp.

Purely speculative of course.
