Potential Compliance Buyouts

Okay, I know it's early and I haven't given up on this season, but any GM has to look months, even years ahead. The Jackets didn't use either of their compliance buyouts during the off-season. This means they could buy out two players on their current roster without it showing on the salary cap. So, having seen what's been happening, if you were Jarmo, who would you be looking to buyout at the end of this year?

For me, the one definite is Jack Johnson. Where's his defense? If he was scoring goals, I'd urge him to become a forward, but he's not. So, time to bite the bullet and buy him out.

I don't have a strong second choice. If it wouldn't look ridiculous, I'd buy out Boll, for the reasons everyone can list. Despite my recent defense of Umby, he'd be on my "maybe" list and I'd want to see how he plays through the rest of the year. Also on my "maybe" list is Anisimov. I don't know what's happened, but I would expect more from him, after last season. I can also see not using the second compliance buy out.
