He's still had flashes of a declining player (e.g. I thought he dragged down his line against Montreal) and he's nowhere NEAR the kind of dominant force he'd need to be to justify the cap recapture risk.
Kudos to him for redeeming himself and rehabilitating his game after last year's awful performance - I'm sure he'll get every penny he deserves on a well-earned 3-year deal after he's bought out. But IMO there's no question you still have to buy him out.
