    They are predicting too many buyouts I think. Ottawa, for example, may buyout 1 of Smolinski and DeVries (and I think they will buyout no one), but they wouldn't do both. Their is no point in paying a player 2/3 of his salary not to play unless you desperately need cap room.

    Why do they think we should buy out Yelle and Wiemer? That'd be a stupid move.

    No way the Stars buyout Lehtinen. He may make too much for his points-production, but he brings so much else to the table.

    The other two (Guerin, Turgeon) are almost definitely gone.

    No way are the Stars buying out Lehtinen. No way.
    Guerin and Turgeon...absolutely.

    IF fox is right, then none of those buyouts look desirable.

    Interesting article.

    Aside from the buyouts you can see that some teams have some decisions to make. Lose UFAs and RFAs of their own in order to pursue UFAs under the new salary climate. My guess is that a lot of teams, after taking care of their own RFAs, will not have much room to sign big time UFAs.

    This is gonna be fun.

    I hope Guerin is bought out and the he comes back to Boston. He'd look good on Thornton's Right Wing. Some Bruins fans will disagree with me because he's getting a little older, but I think he'd be good for the team for a couple years. As far as buy outs from Boston, I don't see any, you have to have players under contract in order to buy them out.

    They also have Boynton as signed as one of our key RFAs. But yes, they did omit Thornton.

    He's not on the list but he'll be in Boston next year. They still own his rights.

    "The Senators' payroll looks a little top heavy"

    Yeah, we should go for one of those egalitarian payrolls.

    Will Montreal buy out both Brisebois and Rivet ? I have never been a fan of Rivet and definitely hope that he'll be bought out. Still, despite what most say, I would absolutely keep Brisebois at the right price (about 1.75 million). Unfortunetaly, 3 400 000 is WAY too pricey. See you, Patrice.

    By the way, I'd be shocked if Phoenix keeps Savage at 2 900 000.... I mean, weren't they trying to GIVE him away 18 months ago ? I feel like he will be a healthy scratch most nights on that Phoenix team.

    Not a chance in hell the Stars buy out Lehtinen(unless bought out players are somehow allowed to return to the same team, which Im pretty sure isnt going to be the case). Guerin and Turgeon on the otherhand should definately be shown the door.

    Maybe last season when he had an injured back most of the season, but based off the season before, he is not overpaid at all. No way Dallas even considers buying out Lehtinen, he is part of the core of Dallas. He is one of the most underrated players in the league, despite 3 selkes and 5 nominations.

    Hate to agree, but let's face it, 29 other teams would be eager to sweep up the fallout of that buyout. It ain't happening..

    I don't know where they are getting their salaries from. Chris Gratton was slated to earn $1.5m. After rollback that's around $1.1m. Gratton is better than what they'll get for $700k buyout + $400k for a new guy.

    ... and if the stars buy out Jere Lehtinen I'll cook and eat my left nut.

    Fox did a very good job with the list with the exception of Lehtinen, but he is listed as only a maybe.

    for all intents and purposes, boynton is signed...there's an option on his contract, which the b's will most certainly exercise.

    Doesnt look like they took the 24% rollback into effect..Lehtinen will be making $3.65 million before the rollback(according to the NHLPA site), and just $2.77 million after.

    If a couple of guys in the whole league get bought out I will be surprised. Faced with decreased revenues teams aren't going to have the funds available for lump sum payments like that.

    I can tell you for a fact that Tom Hicks easily has the money to get rid of Guerin and Turgeon.
