OMG, it seems that people around here get confused easily. Teach them about retirement rules for 35+ contracts and how the cap stays, and then they go confuse this with everything else like buyouts.
The retiremenent rule has NOTHING to do with the buyout rules.
I'm sorry but you're confused. Brind'Amour was bought out and his cap hit is still 3,600,000. Brashear will have a cap hit of 1,400,000 with the Thrashers when he will be bought out.
