Consider Recchi gone at the deadline

Most important part of that article? Whatever team has Recchi's rights, has to pay $2.228 million to pick up his option next year. If they decline, he's an UFA. And back to the Burgh he comes. Conversely, Recchi has the right to pick up the option himself, but for only $760,000.

So this means if the Pens want to go in a different direction next year and Recchi REALLY wants to stay in Pittsburgh it's only at 1/3 the price?

That's good but I don't know why he would ever excercise a player option like that since he's still worth at least a good $1.5 million in an open market

The flip side of that is - how great of a return are you going to get for Recchi on a rental?

Actually, I believe that increases the return for Recchi. Since he won't be on the books for next season, I would think a team would be willing to give up alittle more. I could be wrong though, I'm not a rival GM.
