The main reason I don't see him being bought out is, unlike other buy-out candidates
- Very healthy/durable
- Still playing at a very high level
- Caphit is actually pretty good

I know the cap-penalty sucks.. but (sorry if I screw up the number) 1.4 million is definitely not detrimental.
- Its not actual dollars, its just cap space (so no additional financial obligation)
- How many teams spend within 1.4 million of the cap each year?

I think this does have a negative impact on his value, but I don't believe its the difference between a modest return and having to buy him out/take on garbage contracts.
