New York Islanders forward Andrew Ladd has now gone 20 games without a goal. Fans are asking about a buyout scenario for Laddy Daddy.

During last night’s putrid effort put forth by the New York Islanders fans began asking about a buyout situation for Andrew Ladd as he’s failed to come close to the expectations of his contract. Unfortunately, this buyout for Andrew Ladd isn’t a pretty sight.

Here’s a look at what a buyout would look like after this year:

So you would be paying Andrew Ladd $4.83 million for the next five years not to play on the team instead of $5.5 to actually play on the team. Then on top of the $4.83 for five years, it’s another $333,333 against the cap for five more years.

If the Islanders go this route they would suffer from the Andrew Ladd contract for ten more years, while he isn’t even playing, instead of just suffering through overpaying him for five more seasons.

It’s only saving $666,667 against the cap anyway you might as well run him out there even though it feels like he’s just along for the ride. I’d put him with Jordan Eberle and Mathew Barzal again and pray he finds his way. He looked his best as an Islander with those two guys.

Not a contract Garth Snow wants to put on his resume when he’s updating it this summer.
