Wouldn't even expect him to be a "superstar". I'd be happy with getting 30 goals and honest shifts from the guy. Not sure if that's a lot to ask for from a guy who's turning 40. Damn, wish I was turning 40!

Having a C on your jersey can certainly cloud judgment. There is no way he is worth that much money. I like the guy, but come on.

Intangibles, bro.

Funny thing is, if Cally took Sather's offer, he'd be making more money on a much better team. Good job holding out for more, Ryan. Captain-material.

You obviously haven't read the thread--Sather wouldn't give Callahan a NMC/NTC, Tampa Bay did. Plus, Florida has no income tax--which saves big bucks (NYS tax rate is 8.82%). And Tampa Bay is considered an up and coming team, with an excellent GM.

If Bishop bounces back, I like them as a longshot to win the Cup.

Figured there were no fans who thought the Sabres could win it next year. Guess I was wrong.

If they are considered an up & coming team and/or you like them as a longshot to win the cup what do you consider our team to be?

LOL - I was being a dick. I would say the Sabres are a longshot to win the Cup, yeah.

I don't know what the Rangers will look like in three months, ask me then. But, considering the Rangers just made the finals, I wouldn't say up and coming.

Correct.

It was contingent on TBL re-signing Callahan, which could have happened any time this summer, so it was pretty much impossible for the conditional pick to be a 2014.

He would not be making more money. Ryan is actually making more money in Tampa because is the tax laws, and it was never about the money, it was about the no trade clause, which he got.

And Tampa is probably better than us.

The league needs to look into this tax issue. Teams should be able to pay based on the cap number multiplied by the state tax. Level the playing field.

Montreal has it even worse with their taxes.

This is probably true. The cap really should vary to make it such that each team gets to pay out the same after tax dollars. The problem of course is that tax rates can change.

What's your affiliation with Callahan? He's gone and time to move on. Poor guy needs to make more money to pay for security against really weird obsessed fans.

Even if it's close, it helps.

This would make a lot of sense. Definitely would balance things out a little bit more.

what about cost of living expense? theres a lot more than just taxes...probably too many to take into consideration.

I don't think cost of living expense should be included. I think all that matters is that regardless of what city you are in you get the same amount of money on each paycheck. How you choose to spend it is then up to you.

That's the way I see it. Taxes are one thing. Cost of living shouldn't count.
