Nah. We already did that.

Let's get Galchenyuk now.

Dreaden: bought out.
Dreary: bought out.
Fumblez: bought out.

Rangers was the only team that really had to check how you spell albatross in plural. Those two summers were dreadful and it's not like it came out of the blue either.

This is what I was referring to in regard to the grievance.

www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=413753

Quote:
The Canadiens may not have been on firm legal footing when it sent Gomez home and that appears to be reflected in Tuesday's agreement. The benefits flow to the players. They get their entire salary for this season (as opposed to a two-thirds buyout amount generally reserved for these types of buyouts), while also getting a chance to sign on with a new team this season. Gomez and Redden can effectively each take home four paychecks over the next two seasons.
Quote:
So the new deal isn't perfect for the teams. However, given the legal uncertainty associated with sending a player home, the league might have thought it was a good idea to give a little so as to avoid the possibility of a grievance.

And that's why this deal, from the perspective of the teams, looks less like a favour to the players and more like a concession.

The Oilers, Stars, Wings and Coyotes will certainly study the option of signing UFA D Wade Redden.

Daren Millard has heard Winnipeg and EDM as two teams interested in Redden.

A player must really love flying if they are going to willingly sign on with the Jets this season with their travel schedule.

I disagree that there is any basis for a greivance, the players were going to get their full salary thsi year had the league not agreed to an early buy out.

Player goes home for the season and is bought out over the summer.

He gets paid his full salary and 2/3's of next year(s) number.

Player gets bought out today, he gets this year salary in full and 2/3's of next year(s) number.

either way it plays out the player is still getting the same money from the team.

If a player has a problem with this they have remedies available to them in the form of looking to terminate the remaining terms of their agreement. The teams would have no issues letting each of these guys out of their contracts.

Now, if the player wanted out of their deal and the team gave them a problem while still asking them to stay home, well then yeah I see the greivance there.

I have no doubt that a judge would tell the player, if you do not like being asked to stay home, enforce the remedies you have available to you by walking away from the contract.

While I am a pro player guy, all this talk of greivance is money grab by the players so that they can have their cake and eat it as well.

Front office guys get fired all the time. Alot of them are not bought out. They are "re-assigned" and quite often are asked to "work" from home.

These guys are getting paid to do nothing. However, they are also allowed and encouraged to seek employment elsewhere so that the teams are off the hook from paying them any further.

this is no different.

Reports have Red Wings interested in Wade Redden. "From Lidstrom To Redden" could be the world's next horror movie phenomenon.

The Redwings are the kind of organization where I could see him going and excelling in the face of the odds.

They are like the Patriots. They just won't get old and go away.

AKA I don't understand what the grievance would actually be about.

Read the article. Once again, the merits of the grievance are not where the benefit to the teams was here. Simply avoiding the grievance was what they wanted.

Real good news for all parties. Hope he finds a team and gets to a thousand games. Always liked the guy, even if he couldn't reach his old level of play. Hope he enjoys all that $$

The lasting image of this guy is screening hank in game 7 a few years back for Federov's series winner.
Good riddance.
