Used by who though? All the star prospects at forward that they have lined up, chomping at the bit to score megapoints in the NHL?

That team is Diddled man. Their top three prospects have combined for like 1 point in 19 games.

Someone from the minors making 500K?

Well, if we're being honest here, I don't think Carolina has the kind of money to bury $3.6 million in the minors and then bring up a player to replace him for $600,000.

That's $4.2 million right there. And for what? Better off continuing to flounder at the bottom of the rankings, hope to move some guys for a couple more picks/possibly get some money off the books and hope to hell that whoever they draft 1/2 overall makes an immediate impact.

Yeah, therein lies the issue, but a kid getting experience is better than Rod right now. I have no idea if they can get a team to take a chance on him? Doubtful with another year left on his contract.

What a mess.

You're missing the point that they can't afford it. A team that's already a tough market to begin with, that's been in last place since the first day of the season and given their record is a 70% chance to lose every night isn't making any money. That's a guarantee. Let alone enough money to make a $4.2 million move to give a kid some playing time. When they can expand their roster after the trade deadline and bring him up for much less of a cost and potentially after they've cleared some playing time for him by moving out some bodies.

No, yeah, I know what you meant. I was thinking there might be a way to move him to a team that can afford him next year and is willing to take a chance, but the chances of that are 1 in a big number. That's 3.6 in lost money right about now.

No one's taking him. If you thought Redden was an unmovable contract? Christ....at least that guy can still do something, like skate. Brind' can't do anything anymore.
