    Unlike Umberger, Lehtera doesn't have a NMC so he can just be waived. I don't see a need to buy him out with 1 year left.

    Do we need the space? No, so no need to buy him out and **** us over in later years.

    I'd like to see a 19-20 roster where Lehtera's buyout penalty of $1.67m somehow causes the Flyers to be near the $80m+ cap ceiling.

    It likely won't, but what's the point in risking it? We don't need the space this year, ride it out.

    Or we just keep the space and not buy him out

    There is virtually zero risk of $1.67 hurting the Flyers in 19-20.

    He should be bought out right this second. If he's not, you can count on him being a 4th line/PK mainstay.

    Do you want him on the 4th line and PK or do you want him bought out? Those are the only 2 realistic options. Hextall will not bury him in the AHL.

    And what happens if he does bury him in the A? What will you guys complain about next?

    He won't, so i'm not worried about that.

    If I had to guess, i'd just resume complaining about MacDonald. Not sure what I have to do with this though.

    Do you want Lehtera on the 4th line and PK?

    To save money, and to improve the NHL roster without dumping a veteran on the Phantoms who can only play five or six of them per game.
