Tallon has to buy this guy out. Let him win the Masterson and then make a back door deal with him and buy him out or give him a cushy job filing papers or something. Next year will be ruined if this guy is wearing Panther Jersey on the ice again.

As much as I love what he has done for us in the past, I'm sure he must realize that he isn't what he used to be anymore. I hope Tallon decides to buy him out, and then offer him a development role within the organization. I love having him around the team, but he shouldn't be taking away a roster spot from the likes of Robak or Petro just because he is Jovo...

Make it happen, Dale

If this team is serious about winning, Jovo won't be in the lineup.

He's probably just going to play it out. I remember that he was supposed to discuss about next season with Dale, and I'm presuming (with the draft, Jovo's b-day tomorrow, buyout window and UFA closing) that it's taken place already.

A game here or there, more than likely too many than what we'd like, if (more like when with the current medical staff) there's a long injury. I don't like it, but I'll deal with it.

He was never going to be bought out. Dale will talk with him and he'll probably retire.

If Jovo was even close to being bought out, we would know by now. Its a difficult situation to be in.

I expect he'll choose to retire during the season. He (probably) won't be getting any playing time, and I suspect he'll call it then. It's always hard seeing one of your childhood heroes turn into a shell of there former selves, but it happens. Hopefully he'll get a nice office job with you guys

We can only hope. I don't see him walking away from 5million dollars.

They're going to Hal Gill him, i.e. give him the home opener, game at Vancouver, game at Arizona, season finale, and any games they have an injury or have been eliminated.

Nope, he already said he wants to go out like Smyth.

Whether people like it or not, I agree with this and it's the most likely scenario IMO.

Smyth was actually decent this past year (much much better than the year before), hopefully Jovocop can find his mojo for his last season

Oh I didn't even realize you were an Oilers fan lol. Yeah, Jovo said he wants to go out like Smyth (i.e. standing ovation, both teams shake his hand etc) Especially since this season ended with a 5 minute major and game misconduct


As for finding his mojo, he's done. He had hip resurfacing (only athlete in the big 4 to play after having it) and I give him a lot of credit, but he just can't skate at an NHL level anymore, and even 15 minutes a night is too much for him. If he was a forward, there'd be less hate, but he's so slow he drags down whoever his partner is.

I agree

For the record, I'm as shocked as you.

For the record, everyone who is saying we need to retire his jersey needs to remember Jovo's best days were in Vancouver, and Phoenix! I cannot believe people are actually saying this, I don't blame you because the organization made it as if he was coming "home" on his second stint here. Maybe they should have said, he's coming "home to where he resides" I would have been more thrilled with either Pavel Bure resigning then Jovo lol

With that said, we need to retire Bure's number.

Beezer had as big an impact on here as Bure did. I don't think either was around long enough to have their jersey retired. Someone mentioned it earlier, Luongo has the best chance to get his jersey in the rafters.

Probably not, but I'd rather retire Bure's number than Jovo's.
