Should the NHLPA succeed in having last year's contracts included in a new deal, it would almost certainly include a one-time provision that would allow teams to buy out two players on the roster and not have the buyouts count against the salary cap.
The team would then be able to re-sign the players at a reduced rate and only that salary would count against the cap, or they could simply allow the player to become an unrestricted free agent.
Okay ..Whatever you say Fozzie Bear
However if today's reports come true then, that is exactly what would happen ..
If contracts are honoured then the exact team that I said above would be under contract.
They would take of the 24% and then as you can see., you can buy out a couple of players and resign them a small amounts to get under the cap and it does not count towards the cap. . That virtually with a little bit of restructuring turns my suggestion into a true fact...
See you just have to open your mind a little to possibilities and the whole world will open up to you.. ..
