But why not carry him when they have no one else to spend the cap space on? I don't think he's in the org's pans beyond this upcomming season, but when you consider his shootout value, his ability to provide top 6 forward depth in the event of injuries, and that fact that we dont have the pressing need to free up several mil of cap space, it seems logical to me that they didn't buy him out... They may also believe he'll have some value at the deadline even if it's for a mid round pick, which is more than buying him out and getting nothing in return in terms of assets... Hagelin and MZA will definitely be question marks heading into the season, so I can also see WW being a little bit of insurance in the depth department.
