There's no debate here. He will retire before that contract expires, and therefore the Rangers will get hit on the cap for significant dollars. There's simply no choice.

And yet, according to the last that we heard yesterday (via the caddy at Bayonne), Brad says that he is NOT getting bought out this year. I think it comes down to a business decision in the sense that Jimmy D wants another year out of Brad before the inevitable buyout -- whether that decision is one full of risk or not.
