PHN Extra: Tatar and Brouwer, Analyzing Buyout Candidates

The NHL buyout list is not typically a hunting ground for teams with Stanley Cup aspirations, as do the Pittsburgh Penguins. However, as the league gets younger and faster, more General Managers are signing young players to big deals which are not working out or signing veterans to contracts which last longer than the player’s value.

Enter stage right, Tomas Tatar and Troy Brouwer.

The Detroit Red Wings signed Tatar to a four-year $21.2 million contract last July. The Calgary Flames threw $18 million over four years at Brouwer.

Tatar is just one year into his contract, Brouwer is two years in, but both names are churning in the buyout discussion. Could either help the Pittsburgh Penguins?
