Who knows though I'm not expecting a buy-out this summer so I don't really care what Snider's saying right now. We'll see if he really means what he's saying now next summer when it comes time to make a decision. If he does end up doing it I won't expect him to say much to media about it. People with money and power like him don't like admitting when they're wrong.
If he buys Bryz out in the 2014 offseason (when there will be a better crop of goalies available) he can frame it as being part of getting extra cap space to resign Giroux, Couturier, Read and B Schenn.
