Sitting on him until later will not work. The Flyers are trying to get under a certain salary number. Also, very few teams need him @ $2.3 mil. Buying him out may be the only way the Flyers can avoid his salary counting against the cap and /or tax. I guess it really matters on the CBA. If it is a cap, Burk must be bought out. This team is rebuilding and there is no need for Burk.
