Who will be bought out on other teams besides the flyers?

Not a bad lineup at all. As long as Heatley doesn't get a ridiculous contract I would be good with that

Don't want Heatley at all. Laich, Hossa and Ruutu I'd be interested in.

On the 0.0001% chance that Hossa gets bought out, it won't be this summer. There are many nights when he is the best player on the team that currently has a 1-0 lead in the Cup Finals. As a GM you don't get rid of that due to concerns 5-7 years down the road because there's a good chance you won't have your job 5-7 years down the road, especially if you get rid of someone like Hossa. Also if they did for some reason decide they couldn't afford to keep his contract, someone would be willing to trade for it.

Apparently you guys didn't watch much of Minnesota this year; Heatley is no longer a consistent offensive threat at the NHL level.

It would be similar to watching Gagne and Giroux play together at the end of this season... a waste of Giroux's vision.

what a terrible contract. This guy has always been one of the most overrated players in the league
Since his inception, really. And currently, he plays like a bit of a ******* as well.

He definately fell off as an offensive threat....but at the right price I would sign him depending on what happens with Gagne. I feel he is a slight upgrade over Gagne at this point in his career

I used to be a fan of Heatley, but it's clear that he's significantly digressed over the past few seasons. His skating just isn't what it used to be and it looks like he really labors out there. He's really no longer a significant upgrade over either Simmonds or Hartnell at this point. I'm sure someone will buy high and be stuck on what Heatley did in the past, but he's just not worth the 4 to 5 million he's going to get (and you know someone will give it to him). I suppose it wouldn't hurt though if you could get him at 2 to 3 million and he has a bit of a renaissance, but that's hoping for a lot.

i can see Pittsburgh going after Heatley. Especially with Morrow already saying hes leaving and the unknown certainty of Iginla.

Heatley's slow, can't really play capable two-way hockey anymore, and can't score. Gagne just can't score.

So you want to sign Richards and Lecavalier? What about Schenn and Couts

With an infinite bank account we can roll:

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Lecavalier - Richards - Simmonds
Couturier - Schenn - Gagne
Talbot - Laughton - Rinaldo

Streit - Coburn
Timonen - Schenn
Grossmann - Gustafsson

Bernier
Mason

(Read traded for Bernier)

Hossa is the one player I wanted on the Flyers for a long time. There is no way he gets bought out this off season though.

Heard this rumour that the Hawks might buy Hossa out of that horrendous long deal, for fear he retired early. 8 more years with a $5.2M cap hit and he's already 34!

Let's just pick him up to play LW with Giroux....
I'd love to try if he hits UFA. Hossa is just outstanding.

How is Briere a better buyout option than Bryz? Bryz's contract is infinitely worse.

True, but I agree with those who say the Hawks will wait until after next year. Makes more sense.

Briere is being bought out. His play is not worth his cap hit. It has nothing to do with cash, the Flyers have loads.

Bryz, for all his baggage, carried the team all year and showd he was capable of winning one round the prior year.

Briere is barely worth $2 million now, there is no way to justify carrying the cap hit.

Buy both of them out. Find another goalie. Find another winger to replace Briere. Save some cap room for deadline rentals.

Oh totally. And as long as Hossa is willing to do a Tim Thomas "I'm not going to play just suspend me", then there is really no problem.

As long as he doesn't just up and file retire papers.

Yeah, only way I would want Heatley is if he came extremely cheap. Like three mil or so on a short term deal. That's the only scenario I could ever be comfortable with as far as Heatley goes.

If we had only 1 buyout, I'd pick Bryz every day of the week. His contract is aaaaawful, and it always was. Briere's contract is over after 2 seasons, we can live with his "albatross". I also do think his injury played a little into his issues this year.

Although I have no problems buying the both out.

Dany Heatley, Marc-Andre Fleury, Brad Richards, Vincent Lecavalier and Brooks Laich get bought out, I would like to see flyers make a pitch for any of these players.
