I believe it would (at least with the previous CBA), John LeClair did it with the Penguins and I believe Shanahan did it with us.

It's usually a mutual agreement between both the player and the team to move on. In terms of the procedure, the team assigns the player to the minors, the player refuses to report, and then the team has the option to terminate the deal.

Easier for Shanahan and LeClair to give up (relatively cheap) one year deals than it was for Redden to give up 23 million over his final four years. Sheldon Souray was in a similar boat.
