The Bochenski deal has reminded me of something that has irked me for a while. This deal looks like Brian Burke clearing a D man and his salary to make room for Niedermayer. Anyone else ever buy the "retirement" baloney! This was giving vet a vacation to save cap room while assuring him more help for the play off run by acquiring Matt Schneider in the off season. A shrewd calculated move that wreaks of messing with the intention of the cap. When will this become common place that a player "retires" for half a season to allow his team to restock in the off season? Total scam but an effective scam, congratulations go to the Bruins too, got you a number 5-6 dman and guilt by association to this act.
