I've seen a few geniuses in the thread suggest he could "make up" that lost income with the endorsement deals he'd fetch in Montreal. This overlooks two very obvious things: he doesn't need to play in Montreal to land those kind of deals: he's getting them in the hockey backwater of Tampa Bay right now. And 2) his income from those endorsements would be harshly taxed in Quebec as well.

Chris Drury couldn't have been bought out if he hadn't been given a clean bill of health.

You can't buy out a player who's injured.
