Even tougher to move Heatley now with the spotlight being shone on his questionable character.

IF he stays healthy. IF!

yeah, I agree, I will gladly turn on a Caps game just to watch that team. I didn't mind when they beat the Rangers, it was a great series to watch.

I was game 4 when Ovech had like 15 shots...he's sick...but when Lundquist made that glove save on Semin the crowd leaped like a goal was scored...one of the louder games I've been at (Season ticket holder since the lockout)

oof, jealousy with the season tickets. I had a very promising source for many Rangers tickets this year. And then motherfucking TARP happened, so bye bye employee tickets.

$4.95 cap hit a season, Homer knows what he's doing

smart move. Now if only he could dump the alarmingly stupid Briere contract.

Probably not. I've been reading about whether or not he'd be off the cap because of his age.

I remember how upset Buffalo fans were when he bolted (I like Buffalo, I was ticked too) and we thought Regier was an idiot. He may be an idiot, but he's was smart enough to know that Briere was absolutely not worth $7M+ a year.

I'm not saying he is worth that, but one could argue his $6 million/year cap hit is reasonable considering the market.

Briere's problem hasn't been underachieving so much as getting hurt. That contract is an overpayment but not among the absolute worst, Gomez's k is worse, Redden's, I'm not sure Hossa's isn't worse actually.
