Because losing Drouin+Lecavalier means less chance of making the playoff, meaning less playoff money.
Lecavalier was over 0.73 ppg (which is 60 points in a 82 games season) in his last 10 seasons.
You do know he would be tied for the Art Ross with 60 points this year (which you are counting as a less than 60 points season), right? So that makes it 2 season, in which he played only 65 and 64 games, in the last 10 seasons he didn't have at least 60 points. He still had 25 and 22 goals those years.
Lecavalier is still serviceable and the owner will be happy to pay the 10 millions to buy him out in 2016 if needs be.
Per Cap Geek, buyout 2016-06-15
It also drops to 4.333 millions if the buy out is in 2017 and 1.667 million in 2018.
