Hmm, I don't know. $4,940,000 for a player who has had 10 concussions? I just don't see the Flyers spending that kind of money. Someone mentioned keeping Roenick on for one more season because that is when his contract is up. I just think it's time for a parting of company. When you consider that Leclair, Roenick and Amonte are making a total of over $16,000,000 and a buy out would cost a little over 11 million for all three makes it completely plausible that he is sent packing.
Of course, it wouldn't surprise me either if you see players like Somik not brought back and a guy like Brashear added to the buyout list as well. However, none would have the financial flexibility that buying out Roenick would make.
