I seem to remember one of the reporters saying 4-6 months ago that there might be amnesty buy-outs. Teams that spent to the cap were warned that the cap may be lowered in the cba and they would have to get themselves out of the mess by buyouts or trades.

It looks like this is comming to pass. The make whole debate will be settled with the owners paying most or all of it. One way to accomplish that is to have amnesty buyoouts that don't count against the cap (like the last cba deal).

This fits in exactly with Stauffer's rumour / hint. The obvious target is Jbo as the Flames are close to the cap and have surplus dmen. Very few teams will be lining up to take on that cap hit so the price would be very low. Feaster will have to accept a small return or be forced to buy him out.

Before the summer, Flames broadcasters hinted the askling price was a 2nd round pick and a B grade prospect. Now, the price may be one or the other.
