<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>WhatNowDiscussion</b></div><div>1. Mitchell will not be a first line pairing if he even plays in the NHL next year. There are so many defenseman ahead of him for call ups
2. I rather have Strome at the contract you signed him at than Cirelli
3. Cagguila has been great for the Hawks and won't cost much so he should be resigned and put on the roster
4. Why you bought out Maatta is beside me. He's young and relatively inexpensive. He could easily fetch a solid prospect or pick in a trade
5. Buying out smith is going to hurt the Hawks in the long term. You'll get the same cap relief if you put him on waivers and send him to Rockford</div></div>

1. Who is ahead of him? Gilbert is a 7th defenseman at best. Carlsson looked good but likely has a 3rd line ceiling. Beaudin isn't ready. Everyone else isn't an NHLer. You can probably switch Boqvist and Mitchell here, but he is our next best d-man not in the NHL.
2. This is an overpayment for Cirelli, but he is definitely better than Strome.
3. Correct.
4. Maatta is very likely going to be a cap casualty this summer, and he is by no means inexpensive. He is a #5 defenseman on any good team (aka teams that would trade for him), and 4mil is definitely too much for that kind of guy. The buyout is very cheap and allows us to improve elsewhere.
5. This is incorrect. You save a little over a million when you send guys to the minors, while the buyout would save us over two million over the next two years. No one is going to trade for him, and the extra year of the buyout is not a year where big contracts are due.
