FYI, if you guys buy out Stumpel, he counts as $1.5 million against the cap paid out over the next 2 yrs (2/3rds of each yr bought out according to the CBA...see the contract of Sean Hill who was still being counted against FL's this season). So in the end, you're really only saving about $750K to gain a roster spot.

The cost of buying him out may not be worth it compared to trading him for a 7th round pick or putting him thru waivers and then paying half his salary by hoping someone picks him up on re-entry waivers.
