No more buyouts please. To me this is an irresponsible way of correcting errors. I agree with it on a smaller contract like Nilsson. But seriously people are acting like this fix is a new fad.

There is interest in Souray out there. It has been mentioned that other teams are trying to organize their assets. I think Tambo may be targetting teams that need to additional cap hit to make the salary min.

I understand the as fans we want action to entertain us. Truthfully in order to create or draw any interest Tambo is going to have to sit on this situation for a while until other teams begin to feel a sense of urgency in order to add a big shot and leading force like Souray. I'm completely certain that he could have accepted salary back at this stage but declined. To accept another salary back and have it effect us for more than one season serves no purpose. Just like buying him out or paying half his salary for the next two seasons because of re-entry.
