It's good to show restraint. Relax.
I wanna not go in with the same team that failed to bring home the Cup. Options are starting to run low.

Whitney at 4 is a steal compared to Dubinsky at 4.2. Another one gone

I would love for the top FA this year to sign on the first day and not drag this **** out, then other dominoes can fall.

Would go against everything this team is building on, which is work ethic and commitment. Would be stupid to bring a cancer like Semin into the fold to disrupt things.

The free agent market sucks. Glen will make the right move when the time comes. Don't panic on these terrible players. Whitney is good but not 4.5 mill good.

We still have the whole summer.

Options were low to begin with. And what little existed has cost crazy money. You are successful by fielding a team that gets the most out of each $ spent...overpaying for UFAs is not the way to accomplish that.

If one person disrupts things, then this team is overrated and the stories of how strong our locker room is were all ********.

I am willing to overpay for Doan though, if he is willing to do a deal for 5.5-6 million per for 2 years. I think you do that deal.

I am was very apprehensive about Whitney though.

Page 189 of the CBA

Quote:
(C) "Performance Bonuses."

(1) "Performance Bonuses" means any Bonuses set
forth in a Player's SPC, the payment of which is
contingent on the Player's achievement of some
agreed-upon benchmark(s) related to his
performance as a Player or his Club's performance
during a particular League Year.

(2) Performance Bonuses shall be allowable under this
Agreement only for:

(i) Players with Entry Level SPCs under
Art icle 9 of this Agreement;

(ii) Players aged 35 or older as of June
30 prior to the League Year in which the SPC is to
be effective, who have signed a one-year SPC for
that League Year
; and

(iii) Players who are "400-plus game
Players" for pension purposes, and who: (i) in the
last year of their most recent SPC, spent 100 days or
more on the injured reserve list; and (ii) have signed
a one-year SPC for the current or upcoming League
Year.

As to paragraphs (C)(2)(ii) and (C)(2)(iii), such Players are not
limited in the length of an SPC they may sign, but in the event any
such Player signs an SPC with a term of longer than one (1) year,
the SPC shall not be permitted to contain Performance Bonuses.


No Players other than those falling into one of the above-
numerated categories set forth in this paragraph (C)(2) shall be
permitted to receive Performance Bonuses of any kind.

Just a thought, but maybe all the quietness from Sather on the FA front means he's working on something else. Perhaps a trade.

Yeah 4.5 for Whitney is obscene, but 4.2 for Dubinsky to score 10 goals, that's fine he'll bounce back......hopefully

Rangerboy, I believe it was a signing bonus, not a performance bonus.

Yeah, I said the same earlier..Might pick up a fourth line scrub, other than that the only way this team improves is via trade..

Do you think Whitney's production is likely to go up or down from last years? How about Dubinsky's?
