I wonder if a team can buy a guy out, and then bring him back...it'd sort of work as a restructuring. Most would contend that if a team cut a guy because of his salary that a guy would just move on from that team, but say you're a guy who has roots set down, you want to be with the team who is buying you out, and the team actually wants you, just not at your cap hit.
I'd still like to see a clause in the new CBA that allows for restructuring of deals. There would be more player movement and less albatross contracts, which I think is a good thing.
I also don't think Martin is done. I think he had an average season, but people just remember the bad last season, and not the good. He played a few months of very good hockey.
