Certainly for the esteemed members of the Leftover squad, the new NHL means having an open mind, in terms of both geography and finance. "To get the price they want, they may have to go somewhere they don't want to go," player agent Sosa said. In presalary-cap days, squeezing an extra $100,000 or $200,000 out of a team wasn't a problem. "But to bend and stretch over a $100,000 or $200,000 now is problematic," said veteran agent Ritch Winter, who this week helped Jan Hrdina land in Columbus, but still has Team Leftover stars Hamrlik, Bondra and Eriksson, along with Michal Rozsival, to deal with. "You have to be aware of the market, and you have to be concerned about it. The only ones who are not concerned about it have to be in a coma."
