Plus now he'll get signed by a contender to a league min contract for depth probably and likely get a playoff run.

He’s suspended, not released.

If he can’t crack buffalos line up who is going to want him? If he was worth even a roster spot he’d be playing.

Crazy, it was a back-loaded contract without any signing bonuses. Whatever $6M pro-rated works out to.

Can't imagine this looks good around the league, either. PTO at best now...he may have still had some chance at a guaranteed 1 yr deal (~$700k)

Back loaded? Thats odd for a contract. Why would a player not want their money up front? You would think this would be the exact reason to not back load a contract...

Not for an RFA contract, it isn’t.

I didn't realize it was back loaded like that, only a $2m increase over the course of the deal going from $4m-$6m/yr. Its a $36m deal. he is only leaving about $1.5m on the table by not going to the minors because he's been on the active roster for about 60 games this year. Lots of money but he's also earned $42+m in his career.

My mistake, thought he had a year left on his contract.

Seems like a good move on his part to walk away from that $1.5 million if he wants to attempt to continue his career.

Now he can potentially be signed by a playoff team and try to raise his stock rather than toil in the AHL.

Honestly, I wouldn't be opposed to the Flames signing him to a one-year, cheap contract. They need some new blood on defense, particularly on the right side. If it goes awry... well, he'd be cheap.

If it lets us sell Brodie and/or Hamonic, why not

Maybe we can get our depth defenseman for free instead of giving up a draft pick for one

Leafs will probably take a look. They seriously need a free and cheap Dman whether he’s any good or not.

The only reason he can't crack the Sabres lineup is that if he encounters a stiff breeze, he breaks 3 ribs.

Then Calgary is not the place for him, every time the Chinook blows in, it's mighty windy.
