I think I understand why the old CBA was written this way, but it doesn't and wasn't meant to apply to this situation, so it is just a hunch

Even if nothing changes with the CBA, the Bruins roster is pretty much all set, the could use a 7th D maybe, but that is it. They also have Savard's $4 million that they can use at any time if they put him on LTIR.

Lastly, and probably most importantly, if they bought him out they would actually have to pay him, as things sit now they pay him $0.
