We don't seem to be in any cash crunch this season, so better to just ride out this year and remain free of the commitment afterwards.

Of course, I also wouldn't hesitate to spend all of his money on July 1st if that's what it took to really improve the team. You can always McGillisize him if necessary.
The problem with keeping Dandenault is you probably have a disgruntled player on your hands. ASt least if you buy him out he only costs you a 0.5 cap hit or whatever and you can put a Stewart or D'angostini in his spot that will be happier in that role and have a future on the team possibly.
