From a budget standpoint, sure it would make sense to let him go but I don't think he hurts them too much anyway in that regard. From a creative standpoint, it would hurt them a bit because it leaves Melanie with no tie to the canvas. She does not have a confidante and the show loses a familiar face that fits in with the next generation concept. I mean, the character has untapped potential. It's just that with every regime change we never get any consistent writing for him and his love interests keep leaving the show LOL.
I wouldn't say Darin does not have Days in his long-term career plans. If he didn't, why even bother to sign a contract last year? Why say that you are willing to do both? Why not just quit now? The fact that he hasn't yet tells me he doesn't want to leave for whatever reason (economy, etc). I mean, he landed a pilot and his name has been in a tabloids a bit. He's got more going for him then Rachel Melvin, who actually has quit, yet Darin has hinted at trying to make it work, which speaks volumes IMO.
