New CBA buyouts?

I've been hearing there is a lot of worry about the upcoming 2010-2011 expiration of the current CBA and the downward spiraling economy. I've even heard rumors of the salary cap going down . Since the Flyers have 10 players tied up through 2010-2011 (the most of any team in the league) this would obviously be a big problem for us.

I was just wondering if, come 2011, the economy is still in the ******* and teams are stuck in salary cap hell, would the NHL redo the CBA and include another one time only buyout clause similar to 2005 when teams have a week or so to buyout any contract and it doesn't count against the cap? I wouldn't mind having a chance to take a second look at Briere or Lupul's contracts.
