Why didnt they just buy out Reimer who has a smaller cap hit?

No kidding. I re-read this trade multiple times and cannot figure out my Florida did this? To appease Reimer’s family (fairly close to Florida? Is a 6th rounder worth ~$1 million?

Maybe because in 2020/21 Reimer's buyout cap hit is 3.2M vs Darling's 2.3M.  Florida wants to spend right up to the cap so that 1M might be important to them.

Ok, I didn’t look that up.

 

Sad to see Scott Darling fading like that. Hope he can recover and find his for again.

That's probably it. That's due to a large signing bonus due July 1, 2020. Overall the Reimer buyout would have cost around $500k less. But that one year must have been perceived as a problem.

 

But there are a number of people who suggest that Reimer is still a decent goalie. I'm surprised Carolina only had to add a 6th round pick to sweeten the deal.
