It looks like the Ottawa Senators probably won't buy out Colin Greening's contract.
Instead, the Senators are more likely to bundle Greening in a trade with a goaltender. Getting rid of Greening would clear $2.65 million annually in cap space through 2016-17. He was limited to 26 games with the Senators in 2014-15 and finished with just one point. Jun 17 - 10:31 AM

Colin Greening, Jared Cowen, and Zack Smith will watch Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series from the press box Wednesday night.

Greening has been unable to crack the deep Senators lineup since March 29th and will remain held out in the playoffs barring an injury. In 26 games this season, he was able to score just one goal with 29 penalty minutes. Cowen played in 54 games with the Sens this year, scoring three goals and 9 points with a minus 11 rating but has not been in the lineup since March 29th.

However, Greening is unlikely to attract many trade suitors, so he'll probably end up on waivers with the intention of sending him to the minors. That could happen shortly after the All-Star break.
