I think it's beyond a buyout. You need to hope for an amnesty clause a la the NBA where their hand are left clean and all they have to do is pay him, or for him to decide this is not worth it and skip off to Russia. Buy out leaves a couple years with over $5M cap hits in penalties during years where they'll have money tied up in Giroux, Schenn, Couturier, JVR, two $5M+ defensemen. And I'm only making assumptions here, and didn't even get to whoever our actual #1 goaltender is, or any wingers.
