Malone's time in Tampa very much appears done, the question being whether he can be motivated enough to make a contribution elsewhere. My suspicion is that he will be offered basically for free this summer, and if there are no takers, will be a compliance buyout.

The idea of a Brian Lee buyout isn't so ridiculous because, as the OP has observed, he was buried in the AHL on a one-way contract. It does seem a bit of a longshot, but a buyout wouldn't be altogether surprising. It seems fairly clear he is not an NHL level D.
