1) This is the final year of his contract.

2) He likely wouldn't get claimed.

3) We're already paying him 1.9 if he's on the NHL roster. If we call him up in February and some other team claims him (again, unlikely since they'd be paying 1.9 as well) we're then on the hook for the pro-rated amount. He's already been paid most of his money. We'd only end up spending an additional 600k-800k on whoever replaces his roster spot.
