I totally see what you're saying, but bryzgalovs contract is chump change to a corporation like Comcast. Sure they don't like to shell out cash like that, if they did they wouldn't be where they are, but considering the fact that a buyout doesn't have to be paid in full right away, as there are payment plans, it renders the situation pretty insignificant for them.

If snider reported back to whoever is the higher up at comcast that he reports to and said "we think its in the best interest of the team to buyout Ilya bryzgalov" I highly doubt the conversation would be any more than a swift rationale followed by a click, at which point, snider would adjust his ascot and then go about his business.
