Why do we need to take a decision right now when we could wait a season and see those players perform.
Gomez looks like a no brainer now as you said but maybe he'll bounce back
Maybe we'll take another bad contract along with a good player so we could buyout the bad contract for a "poor" team.
Lets say Buffalo wants to buyout Leino but the GM doesnt want to look stupid because he gave that contract and the owner doesnt want to pay him to play elsewhere.
A rich team like Montreal, Toronto, NYR could take that contract along with a good player
Then the rich team uses his buyout on Leino.
