In terms of 7) I really do not think Ottawa is going to be a team that benefits from or uses the "buyout" mechanism that may or may not be included in the new CBA. At this point why would you buy out a 5.5mil contract that is keeping your team above the floor and providing you with a player that can be used when he only has one year left on his deal?
I don't know exactly what you'd have to pay Gonchar to buy him out but I would assume it would be around 3mil. Then you have to spend another 1-3mil to bring in a new free agent who does not know your system and you possibly wind up paying more for less. In my opinion it makes no sense to buy out any of the contracts on Ottawa's roster.
