So Stone misses out on just over 400k in real money, and the Flames have 1.167M in dead cap next year, but otherwise nothing changes. What a weird situation...
At effectively a $1.9M cap hit, I don't like it, but ignoring the buyout part as that's a sunk cost then 700k for Stone to be a 6/7D seems like a decent idea. They already know his game and his fit in the locker room vs. signing some other league min veteran.
