Agreed on Clemmensen. With Upshall, it will depend on some things. If we retain 50% of his remaining contract (which is the limit I believe), then they only would owe him $1.75M each of the next 2 yrs ($3.5M in total) and only about $600K more than buying him out in those seasons. The question is, what would we get in return and if we have to take on a contracted player, that may not be beneficial for us. We may be better off just buying him out and signing a player we do want.
