Of course he isn't. We were too busy buying out the two FA signings that have a place in the NHL (albeit on the fourth line).

Still the possibility of trading him albeit a small one.

I agree about Barnaby, but players such as Matt Cullen (lifelong AHLers) outplayed Brown by a significant margin. He deserved to be bought out. There's always a demand for defense for better or for worse, and we'll probably find a taker for Cullimore at the deadline this year.

With what happened with his daughter, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if he retired from hockey.

Offensively, Brown was a huge disapointment. He was still far and away our best PK'er, with maybe Sharp threatening his spot.

I think you mean his brother Mark Cullen.

Dangit, I did it again. One day I will learn how to tell them apart.

Holmqvist and Sharp are every bit as good on the PK as Brown was. Im couldnt be happier that they bought out Brown and Barnaby. Too bad they didnt go further and buy out Lapointe and Cullimore also.

From what I'm hearing, teams can only buy out 3 contracts for the duration of this cba. If that's true, they couldn't buy out all 4 even though that would be ideal.

That's not true. We found out the other day on CBH.com after a couple guys read the CBA. It states that during the buy-out period which starts either June 15 or 48 hours after the Cup is won until June 30th you can buy-out any # of contracts. You are only allowed to buy-out 3 over the course of the CBA outside of the buy-out period.

Thanks for the correction.

In that case, I would've been up for dumping Cully and Lapointe too.

Cullimore was a minus 24 for the year
Lapointe led the team with a minus 30

Both were well ahead in that category with Lapointe registering over 100 penalty minutes and i don't remember him being in many fights.

Can you say TRADE BAIT?!?!?

I am just wondering who we will get for him. Especially since there are so many rearguards available this year.

The only hope we have at ridding ourselves of Culliturd is

To Tampa
Cullimore + Hawks 2nd in 07

To Chicago
Tampa's 7th in 07

Honestly, what the hell? What's the point of NOT buying Cullimore out? The only reasonable explanation would be that Tallon thinks he can get an extra pick (6th or 7th rounder) for him.

I mean, where does he fit in our plans? The Hawks already have Keith, Seabrook, Aucoin, and Vandermeer all but penciled onto the team. Tallon has talked about getting another defenseman to man the PP, leaving one spot -- a spot that Cullimore shouldn't even be considered for with guys like Kukkonen, Barinka, Barker, Byfuglian, Richmond, and Wisniewski on the cusp.

Please, get Cullimore off this team.
