Of course, he would be free to sign with any other team, but what team would give him a good deal? It's a different situation than Luongo who I see getting a 5 year $25 million contract if he is bought out.
Assuming the flyers keep him for one more season, he will have received almost half his contract by the end of next season.

24.5 million.

The balance of the contract is: 26.5 million over 6 years.
1/3 of that (the amount he loses by getting bought out) = 8.8 million.
So to replace that lost income, he has to get a 1.5 mil / year contract.

I don't see any incentive to not get bought out here.
