In my view buying out is an extreme last resort because due of the systemic nature of salary cap it is absolutely neccessary to maximise and utilize all cap space avail to build + maintain your team. Moreover I was very critical of the Laraque buyout for the above reason 500k cap penalty or whatever is a huge detriment to a team's on ice success...teams should consider ahl dumping...euro loans or a timely long term injury reserve before buying out...sigh...
