You give him a fair chance at training camp to earn a full time roster position. If he fails, he will likely ask to be moved (if he hasn't asked already). Then Gainey works the phones to try an get a draft pick. If all else fails, Bob puts him on waivers and/or re-entry waivers.
Throughout the entire process, it is vital to keep the lines of communication open between management and Dandy. Dandy has to come out of the process feeling like he was treated fairly and the organization has its reputation of handling their players with class and fairness on the line. With the UFA market so competitive, every little thing, such as player treatment, becomes a much more magnified issue that can give you the slight edge needed over the competition.
