    This is without a doubt the stupidest contract since Kovaluchuck. Shame on you Buffalo, how embarrassing will it be to spend all this money and still only have Hobie to rely on to get you into the playoffs.

    Rieger should be hung from the rafters by his fight strap.

    What do you mean Juice? This is absolutely a clever one. Darcy didn’t make the rules, so if the trend is with the long term stupid contracts, this was an awesome one. 4mil cap hit!!! That was all Pegula and Regier cared about, not that 18mil/2seasons.
