I was thinking that in order to resign him as a 73 overall, I'd have to resign him for a minimum of $5 M for 1 year. Looking at salaries for other 73 OVA, they look to average closer to $4 M per year, so I was thinking I'd be able to pick up an equivalent free agent for cheaper, or maybe make a trade for a better contract/player.

That was my thought process at the time, but a more experienced GM strongly suggested I rethink this and hold on to him as there is substantial trade value there.

Yea this is awesome context - thanks for sharing this. Really good exposure into the thinking process that might help another GM

Wild release David Rittich. note the system calculated the buyout incorrectly so I've credit the Wild back 640K to make up for that error.
The buyout should have been 1.288 (40% * 2 years) but the site applied 1.93.
