Im sure we'd all like to lower Vinny's cap hit but I doubt Yzerman and this organization really want to lose Vinny and it looks like Ohlund will retire, or at least that's what EE keeps saying.
I agree, and considering it league wide, it seems to make sense. It certainly makes things predictable for the PA since it's already known who is bought out.

Infact, I just did the math, and excluding the numbers for whatever is saved for this season, the league would take off $14,527,444 total. (that number would be split unevenly across the next two years, but I don't know how else to phrase it)

It should at least be an option for the Islanders to get rid of the 4.4mil left for Yashin or Minnesota's $927k for Mark Parrish.

Tampa Bay actually has the 2nd highest buyout hit after the Islanders with Prospal's 2.3m after this season.

Here's the numbers I got:
Carolina - $125k
Columbus - $2,283,332
Dallas - $233,333
Florida - $333,333
Minnesota - $927,778
New Jersey - $1,583,334
Islanders - $4,408,000
Ottawa - $200k
Philadelphia - $100k
Tampa Bay - $2,333,334
Toronto - $2,000,000
