Random, if the Blackhawks buyout Seabrook, they'll be paying him till the year 2029, with a cap hit of $3.7M to $6.7M range till 2024, where his cap will then be 833K for 5 years.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I would think in the next CBA there will be a couple of compliance buyouts again

I think i might quietly see whats out there in a trade for a tough as fuck half ass skilled winger to play with EP. See if theres a market for gudbranson. We cant afford to have every team taking runs at the kid with no consequences.
I have seen enough of alberts/gudbranson thank you very much
Supposedly we were exploring miles wood, I’ve got no clue about him at all though
I think hes a tough fucker but coming off a 19 goal year i doubt njd parts with him unless they think EG would offset whatever toughness they lose in parting with him. They do have a fairly deep roster on the wings so who knows
If you could get Miles Wood for 44 you make that trade every day. Wood just doesn’t have the best porn name in the league, the kid can play and skates well. Hard nosed fucker too, he went toe to toe with Jamie Benn last week. The Devils would be retarded to make that trade one for one.

Why would you think that?

The past reasons for CBOs likely won't exist next time round...

So there are no shitty contracts that teams will want to buyout at a fraction of the cost?

The majority of NHL teams don't want CBOs (they usually help rich teams out).

The players union don't want CBOs (the money comes out of the players' share).

The first time it came in was because it was a necessity due to the new salary cap.

The second time was was a necessity due to due to the reduction of the players' share of revenues.

These conditions are not going to exist next negotiations.

I just think there might be some sort of Get Out of Jail free card for some of these teams.

Actually, ever since Reef explained his handle, I can't help but wonder what he did that infuriated her so.

same colour as tea
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
