Yes, they are, but I doubt the "buyouts as cap-filler" rule is eliminated. There seems to be more worry that big ticket teams like Toronto and the Rangers would buyout any and all bad contracts and not be penalized. There aren't too many owners like Wang, who sign players to ridiculously long contracts and then use the buyouts to meet the cap floor. Thank God. Maybe the NHL could add a clause saying that buyouts count against the top of the cap but not the bottom? The Wang Clause. Evil curmudgeon...
