And when making the trade for TT, it was expressed that the money gave them cap flexibility for buyouts.
As for tolling the Isles probably will not, I don't think they want to give TT $5 million at 39 years old, unless he says he is not coming back. Then yeah you toll the contract and help payoff the Rickety fiasco.
Obviously buying out Dipietro would be ideal. Except for the fact they have to pay him. That's a ton of cash to just ship out.
