Can someone please explain to me the logic behind Carolina's decision to buy out the final season of Patrick Marleau's contract? I just noticed that CAR will be charged the entire $6.25M cap hit in 2019-20. If they wouldn't save any cap space by buying him out, why not just keep him. He's obviously still capable of putting up respectable numbers, albeit in the 3rd line role. Maybe I'm just overlooking something obvious, but I'd appreciate the feedback. Thx.
