Frannie opens his wallet, and OEL gets lots of money on the way out of Vancouver.

I think the Canucks forgot the sarcasm font on this post.

I'm not sure what changes since April when GMPA said that buyouts were for fools and he pitied the fool that had to use them. (He sounded like Mr. T when he said it.) I guess the clown shoes must have come today when he had to let the press know that Frannie will be paying $20,000,000 to a guy over the next 8 years to not play for Vancouver. If I am wrong on the math, please tell me. It seems like a lot of money.

Here is the visual from CapGeek

Hey look, Arizona got screwed over as well.

So GMPA has $6.4 million of cap space this year to try and get a defenseman since the team has only 4 right now, who are not injured. Kyle Burroughs might be fist-pumping right now.

This buyout is not all roses and Millhouse.

The last 6 years of this buyout will have an effect on the next Petey contract. Petey is going to get $10 million/yr for 8 years. (You should cut this out and show it to me later if I am far off) So GMPA is probably not done getting rid of people. Unfortunately, the only player that might get you a decent pick is Beau. Either Garland or Boeser might have you retaining a percentage.

Notice I didn't mention J.T. Miller. Well, that's due to the fact that Miller's new contract was signed by GMPA. I don't see Allvin shipping out his first big signing just as the contract begins. Oh....and the Canucks need him to play center and score 90 points.

GMJB continues to get special treatment today as the OEL tenure comes to an end.

Goodbye OEL.

New NM, new comment system. Still uses words and stuff. Hover over the icons to see what they do. 

The most vital function is image embedding. Paste the link to the image in the comment box. When the comment is posted, the image appears. Most of  the time. 

NOTE: Remove the non-image name jibberish. If the image link has any stuff after the file extension - usually a ? with directives like: woo.gif?size=480 blah blah - delete up to and including the ? - simples.

GIF it up for Westy! Or still life in rum.
NOTE: Comments refresh every 30 seconds. Not fast enough for most of our lightening round contestants. We are working to increase the refresh speed. Just... not working too hard... because NM labour guidelines. Thanks for being patient!
