How seriously is Lightning GM Steve Yzerman considering using a compliance buyout? "All I would say is we just finished 28th (in the league)," he said. "We should be looking at every possible way to improve our team. I'm not about to say we're doing this or we're not doing that. As an organization, we sit and debate everything."
compliance buyout already in the works for someone
"We are not concerned with people who profess the democratic faith but yearn for the dark security of dependency where they can be spared the burden of decisions. Reluctant to grow up, or incapable of doing so, they want to remain children and be cared for by others. Those who can, should be encouraged to grow; for the others, the fault lies not in the system but in themselves." --Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals [emphasis added].
