No, I don't see why they would. He's still a useful player, and there's no real benefit to buying him out now vs July 2013 or July 2014. If somehow he gets hurt, carrying him for an extra year won't screw them too much - however it would make things very very tight. But I don't see how they can go into the 2014/15 season with him - at least not if they want any depth. Nuge and J.Schultz would both need new deals before Horc's has expired and that would screw them. Depending on how JS plays, his might not be too bad, but Nuge's will be pretty close to Ebs or Halls.
Can we drop the puck yet? Next season is shaping up to be a very very good one!
