Adding Mason to a deal doesn't suddenly mean they'll accept less for Nash.
His play the last three years and the abundance of goalies compared to actual jobs is why. Waiving him only gets him off the cap if they assign him to the AHL because nobody is going to claim him.
Unless they give teams a window to buy them out with that clause prior to the season, they won't have a buyout option. Chances of an amnesty buyout are slim as it is anyway.
