Olver was bad too. In my draft writeup I predicted he would be one of the 4 2nd rounders because of the Walt Kyle association. I never thought they'd use the first of those on him. Thought It would be Booth or Bickell. Goligoski and Krejci were on the board too. Dubinsky was being talked up a bunch and most of the board was in his corner. That was our saving grace to that round. Never liked the Byers pick, history of injuries ran in the family just like Sauer.
I believe it was Renney.

Apparently him and Wang are close friends, and Wang would never approve him being bought out. That's what I've heard on the Fish board anyway.

To put that into perspective, his contract ends one year later than Beaver Richards'.

Well he did put his friend on waivers...

IIRC, we put Redden on waivers before amnestying him this season. So maybe they're finally going for it?

This is a genius move by Garth and Wang.

As much as I hated DP back in the day, I wish the guy nothing but the best of luck in turning his career around.

EDIT - Using an amnesty on DP makes no sense for the Islanders. Not until they move to Brooklyn at least. If they do use their amnesty on DP, it won't be until 2015. DP helps them reach the cap floor, that's why he's still Islanders property.
