In a new situation and without the burden of being such a cap killer he might just play really well too.
That remains highly hypothetic.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the waivers are active during the off season.
Buying him out enables the team to use the money this summer (via free agency or a trade bringing more salary back). Remember it's not the GM's team. Bergevin will need that flexibility if he sees an opportunity to improve.
