Wasn't it the Rangers who gave him that ridonculous  $4, 000, 000.00/yr contract? 

Basically another 'ufa cautionary' tale for GM's at this point. 

Yeah remember why we traded for him.....acquired him to get rid of a garbage UFA signing by Benning named Sam Gagner.

He honestly showed some glimpses well here. I thought with a full training camp he might be able to turn it around. I'm surprised he didn't wait until later in the summer for a last minute HL offer.

 

Good on him tho to take control of his situation. His new team name is somewhat ironic to our whole cap situation this off season lol.

Yup. Fun fact: That contract buy-out basically screwed the Panthers out of signing Panarin. The Rangers had retained $900k in the trade to the Oilers, and when it was bought out the hit was reduced to $300k, allowing the Rags to up their offer. Province article on it here.

 

So we got them back a bit for the Luongo recapture. :lol:

This makes feel so much better about the Luongo situation!

I believe Switzerland is one of the best places in the world to live. Not sure if he's single, but lots of beautiful women (and men) there. It's not a terrible league either. I think I'd prefer it over KHL (and considering he just got a nice buyout from his contract, so not like he's desperate for the money.

Solid point.

Yeah but we were the end of the road so I'm sure there will be a TSN story on how we screwed him.

That is a nice consolation prize... 

 

But then again, the 2 flordia panthers die hard fans probably haven't been affected by it. 

 

Florida is a trash franchise. From their management, down to the players.

Shows you just how meaningless a .500 record is today (with the 'loser point').  Panthers have been a .500 or better team in 4 out of the previous 5 NHL seasons.
