Wasn't is the operative word....Going forward, we need the dollars to shore up other areas of the team so why waste the 2.5m extra we're paying him when it could be added elsewhere..That takes a player from 3.5m up to 6...(Lucic anyone?)..I think that could go a long way to improve the top 6 on this team.
As I said, also time to change the dynamics on this team, including leadership. When Horcoff is gone, Hall becomes the leader, as it should be.

Besides, buying out Horcoff gives him an opportunity to sign with a contender for a reasonable price and they can have him as a 4th line C or whaever...
