The more I think about Dumont's situation, the less I think we buy him out. It really just depends on what we can do with the extra salary.
We'd save $1.3M, but when you factor in the cost for a replacement on the roster, there really isn't much savings. On top of that, we would have dead salary weight on the books for 12/13. Seems like I'd rather just ride out this last year, be done with it, and at the same time hope he makes comeback as a scoring winger. When he's at his best, he's exactly what we need IMO. It's a contract year for him, so he may be more motivated than usual.
However, if we can somehow get him to waive, and find a trading partner i'd do that. I'd be willing to take a 1 year bad contract in return. Maybe a vet defensemen for the 3rd pairing.
Now if we can somehow guarantee that the money saved from Dumont's buyout can go towards a big ticket forward, then we should do that. But there is nothing on the free agent market and nothing jumps out at me on the trade market.
