There are teams with lifetime contracts (Philly, Chicago, Nashville...) who could suffer worse consequences than the Habs if something like this CBA is signed.
If they take away the ability to send big contracts to the AHL they pretty much HAVE TO allow buyouts with no cap hits, which is what would happen to Komisarek Gomez Connolly Redden and others.
It's those 10-12 year contracts where it would hurt teams.
