The one I'm really having trouble pinning down is the amnesty buyout. It's very difficult to get a read on what's going to happen here because word is the commissioner is absolutely against anything that doesn't count against the salary cap. But you look at the possibility of a $60-million ceiling next season, see where some teams are and say, "This isn't possible without one."
One final note on Redden. It looks like the Rangers have all but guaranteed he is getting the buyout (if there is one) and the sense is there is going to be a lot of interest in him. Don't know what the final salary will be. But if he's willing to be reasonable -- and you have to believe he will be -- he's going to have options. Lots of execs think he will be good value at a lower number.
