Stretch provision means we could waive Landry and have his salary cap hit spread out over 5 years instead of 2. So his total owed (12.5 M) would become a 2.5 M cap hit for each of the next 5 years instead of a 6.25 M cap hit over the next 2. So we'd reduce our current cap hit by 3.75 M, but at the cost of a long term cap hit. Personally I would hate to see it used, because a) Landry at 6.25 is better value than no one at 2.5, and b) Landry becomes an expiring next year, making him a useful trade piece, and waiving him means we can't play or trade him.
