Not long after they got him, the Toronto Maple Leafs are buying out defenseman Tim Gleason. It’s not a compliance buyout, though, as the Leafs have already used their allotted two on Mike Komisarek and Mikhail Grabovski.
Per CapGeek, here are the salary-cap consequences for Gleason:
Gleason, 31, was acquired by the Leafs in January from Carolina, with Toronto sending d-man John-Michael Liles to the Hurricanes. At the time, coach Randy Carlyle was hoping Gleason would be “a guy that can come back in and move the puck. He’s a big man.”
But with a cap hit of $4 million for two more seasons, the Leafs decided to bid adieu to the Michigan native.
