My feeling is that the Devils will be biting the bullet and buying Rolston out if he isn't taken on re-entry. No point in paying him 100% of his salary when you can cut your losses and pay 67%.

A buy out would be 6.7M spread over 4 seasons. 1.675M in cap and financial penalties for 4 years.

This is actually what I believe the Oilers should have done with Souray. No point in paying him every nickle to play in Hershey. I suppose this summer the Oilers could buy-out Souray at 3M spread over two seasons (1.5M). That would at least ensure that when Paajarvi, Hall and Eberle are up for new contracts there isn't any dead cap space left on the books.
