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.
Stumpel's one of those guys who makes you wish players really could be traded for a bag of pucks.

So you're saying there's a chance!
