Shaone Morrisonn - 2011 Cap Hit: $2,075,000. 2011 Buyout Cap Amount: $691,667. 2011 Potential Cap Savings: $1,383,333

Jochen Hecht - 2011 Cap Hit: $3,525,000. 2011 Buyout Cap Amount: $1,525,000. 2011 Potential Cap Savings: $2,000,000

Interesting huh? $6 million cap space.
It is interesting, but whats the point? Bury Morrisonn in the minors... and if you buyout Boyes and Hecht our depth at wing is erased.

I know Boyes and Hecht don't offer as much as we'd all like, but they are much better options than rookies. We could sign replacements too, but for the money we probably aren't going to get players who are that much better than these two, and we'd be stuck paying for the buyouts.

I know you were just stating the facts and not saying we should buy them out... I'm just saying I don't see the point in buying them out.
