To be honest, I can't believe they even used a compliance buyout on Belanger. You only get two, and we used one on Belanger to save waht... 600k on the cap for the next 2 seasons? Seriously...
yeah it seems weird that we used a compliance buyout on belanger when you only look at what we saved... the issue was that we didn't really have any other bad contracts.... we were able to trade horcoffs and no other contract is bad enough to warrant a compliance buyout... belanger's was the only worth using it on... if you can use it to save some money, and don't have any other place to use it, why not? if you don't use them by next offseason, they are gone
