Leino is the clear answer. He still has 3 seasons on his contract after this season and was obviously a mistake and is untradeable.
Stafford may be under-producing, but he only has 1 year left after this season and could probably return a 2nd at the trade deadline (or who knows -- if Goose got a 1st and Stafford can put up 15 goals by the deadline, that's not impossible). There is no point in buying him out.
Myers' contract is currently looking terrible, but I think (1) most of us are hopeful that he will find his game again and at least be worth keeping around, even if he winds up being over-paid, and (2) he is still tradeable - even with that contract.
Hodgson is a joke. He literally just signed (for Derek Roy money), and it's ridiculous to even bring him into this conversation. He will turn out to be a good deal on that contract and, in any event, you could easily trade him with that contract for at least a 1st. Using a buyout on him would be beyond stupid.
