If buyout, off cap entirely happens; Bouchard.
If re-structuring also allowed: Backstrom.
I dunno, though... I forget where I heard it that re-structuring could be allowed. Maybe on NHL Home Ice? The basic premise was this;
If you have a contract on the books for a 6 million cap hit for 1 season left, GMs could re-structure that contract to be a 3 million cap hit per for 2 seasons.
They are talking about the contracts being escrowed, which effectively eliminates teams from having to get rid of players.
