Tanguay Contract

Well the deal that will send Alex Tanguay to the Tampa Bay Lightning is all but complete. All Alex has to do is pass a physical and he will be a member of the Bolts.

What are the contract details that Randy Sexton just couldn't match you might ask? 1 year, $2.5 million. Unbelievable. Rusty Olesz is making over $3 million a year, and he isn't half the player Alex Tanguay is, at least not yet.

I really want to hear an explanation from Sexton on this one. If he claims it's an ownership issue I call BS. Tanguay is getting $2.5 million for 1 year, hardly a contract that the Cats would be tied down on when the sale actually goes through.

If Tanguay took less money to play with the Bolts then there wont be any blame on the part of Randy Sexton, but I don't believe that for one second. My guess is that Sexton and the cheap ownership offered Tanguay a 2 year $1.5 million deal.

All I can say is Randy has some explaining to do. If any of the situations are true, then ownership and Sexton need to leave the Cats as soon as possible.
