Amnesty Buyouts

Another huge thing thatís come up are amnesty buyouts. Brooks says those are back on the negotiating table and they were a key component of the CBA the two sides struck in 2005.
So, if you're allowed a one time amnesty buyout for your team, who do you think it might be(if anyone) and who would you look at for replacing them?

For the Canucks, Keith Ballard is the most likely choice; if he gets cut then I would like to see a prospect like Connauton given a shot on the 3rd pairing, otherwise I wouldn't mind using a pick to acquire a defenseman from the Devils or Sabres to shore up our depth.
