It's not like Molson has $60M to just throw away in salary without a return. I'm not saying he would or should, but it's an option.
... But the team would keep the rights on the players who would be, at this time, RFA.

And it would create a VERY, VERY absurd situation with Max Pacioretty, who would be under no contract for this season, but would be under contract for next season. A contract that hasn't started cannot be voided.
