Interesting...

mirtle James Mirtle Devils put Colin White and Trent Hunter on waivers for the purpose of a buyout. Will give them plenty of cap space.

Hunter I can understand...but White? Without being in cap trouble?

Hmm. Is this in preparation for a move? Parise's already signed and we're well under the cap (assuming Salvador -> LTIR). Interesting.

not to sound like Єklund (2.3% accurate), but with us shaving another 2m if we buy them out giving us about 6 million, could we possibly see us making a play to acquire Doughty's rights???

Maybe possibly Salvador will replace White? He said he'd be ready for training camp... unless a trade is coming...

White would be 2 million split on the coming two seasons. Hunter 2.66 split over the coming four seasons.

Thought White temporarily came off my sh!t list last year because he played decently, but for his pay and what he has produced in the last 5 years plus with the prospects coming up I have no problems with this.

White doesn't check and has had what? 1 or 2 fights in the last 4 years? He has not provided much grit for a while.

I was kind of hoping Hunter would get a chance. Shame about White, but it's probably time to cut ties there.

If you complain about White's production/cap hit, you have no clue what you're talking about.

He's the only one I see who gets dirty and angry during play and after the whistle.

That would be a King's ransom.

We have NOTHING to trade for Doughty unless you want to give up Parise and/or Larsson.

I also see some people joking that Lou is going to get JayBo from Calgary haha. I honestly think this is is way of getting cap space and salary off the books to make way for the youngins.

I agree with this however, its not saying much because White is the only one besides A-train who really got somewhat physical but it didnt happen that much. I think even Volchenkov can step up the hitting game a little.

If this shaves 2 million from the cap total, we could have saved just as much money by keeping White and stashing Hunter in the minors? This doesn't feel like it's entirely a salary cap move, does it. Maybe the team's finances are just as bad as the horror stories.

He is paid to be gritty, but since his eye injury he hasn't checked much and should we really pay that much to a defensive-defenseman to not check?

Most players get dirty and angry during the play and after the whistle. He just shoves a little bit now and skates away or takes a bad penalty. I could do without that.

i am amazed about colin white - something isn't adding up here.

i don't know why it would matter, but i'm curious if there is something to do w/ ownership and salaries on this?

2 million in salary off the books for next season, we could have found that 2 million by stashing hunter in the minors. I really really hate this right now. Taormina/Larsson are both going to be in the top 6, I'd assume. Or Fraser? fvck it I don't even know any more.
