Sustr and Witkowski might be in the mix too for a roster spot.
Any chance for Korobov?

Gotta disagree here. Brian Lees time is done in Tampa, as his best quality was puck retrieval and going north-south (which he never really did, thats a whole different argument) and he seems to lack any of the finer points of what Cooper would want from a defender. I just don't see him being here at all.

The organization has to pay him, so they'll keep him around even to play in Syracuse and serve as depth injury call up. Perhaps a situation will come where someone will pluck him off waivers or trade future considerations for him, but doubtful.

Please help me understand some scenario is which he is just *gone*? It seems to me that perhaps you have a misunderstanding of the nature of covenant relationships that we call legal contracts.

We could buy him out. Wouldn't that be a hoot?

I'm guessing you are joking and being sarcastic, but I'm sure some folks are serious about that option. My take is if I have to pay a guy the balance of his one year contract to buy him out, and since I'm paying that money anyway, why would I not have him at least play for my AHL team? Perhaps he gets picked up on waivers and I save money. Perhaps he gets better. At the very least if the team is decimated by injuries, you have somewhat servicable, albeit less than ideal, player that can log some NHL minutes on the blueline.

I just don't see how the organization gains by buying the player out. No one's spot is being lost by not buying him out.

No. That would mean TB squanders one of two opportunities to buy back substantial cap space. It would be, simply put, bone-headed.

Yes, hence Tim was right in detecting sarcasm.
