The way I understand contracts - Audette's buyout would have been in the neighborhood of $7M (67% of the remaining term of the contract - 3 years at $3.5M per). That's too big a bitter pill to swallow.
And Traverse & Dykhuis are still tying up salary space, because I'm sure they're on 1 way contracts.
Do you think that the Habs would rather have Quintal or Komi/Hainsey playing? I would bet on the kid, but they have to pay Quintal in either case, so the kids go to the minors, or sit in the press box.
