Compliance Buyout?

New, comments

I was reading this article by Bruce McCurdy at the Cult and thought it’d be fun to make a poll to pass the time by.

Assume each team gets 2 compliance buyouts. Which 2 Oiler’s would you buyout? Feel free to comment on why down below! Note: I added Sekera’s buyout which I have no idea if it would be eligible.

First pick:

As a parting note. It occured to me that several athletes have played their final game of their career without even knowing it. Let’s assume the season ends. Where is Mike Smith next year? His career may have ended with him on a heater. What about our fringe NHL players?
