Well, at least Gainey can fix his mistakes...

See ya later, Sergei...don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Somehow, Gainey found a taker for Samsonov and his bloated contract - we traded him to Chicago for Jassen Cullimore (whose $1.9 million deal we're just going ahead and buying out) and Tony Salmelainen.

I don't know anything about Salmelainen ($750K next season), but we got rid of an absolute cancer AND gave ourselves another $850K of cap room to help go after Briere or someone. Absolutely brilliant.

Also, Komisarek and Higgins were both re-signed....1.5M the first year and 1.9M the second year for both guys. I'm glad we locked them up...good day overall for Les Habitants, don't you think?

Definitely a good day. Getting rid of Samsonov would have been good in and of itself. But locking up Higgins and Komiserek is just gravy.
Couldn't agree more.
Make's my day. =]
I would've been happier if we could get 30 goals out of Samsonov, but hey, this is the best of a bad situation that could've gotten ugly.
