It makes no sense to buy him out but on the other hand keeping him handicaps Tampa for 5 or 6 more years or until he retires.
I'm another that would buy out Bourque before Gomez, just my preference. Both would be my first choice.
Well it would make sense because it releases them from a horrible contract, but that would be a hefty price to buy out ; Lecavalier has 45M remaining on his contract starting next year. Not exactly a cheap buy out.
Guy like Gomez however, has a big cap, with one remaining year at 4.5M, easy target.
But I'm not convinced this amnesty buyout will work. Seems to only favor rich owners.
