I dont see why a team not over the proposed cap (like TB) would use the buyout on a player whos cap hit will be gone after this year anyway. Unless obviously they have no other reasonable options to use the buy out on.

Using it on Ohlund makes the most sense to me. Unless Ohlund says hes gonna retire in which case it wouldnt be necessary. Although even with Ohlund, if the Lightning wanted to they could use LTIR to go over that cap amount on the cap limit for Ohlund. So still not effecting them that much.
Right, but TB has Prospal as a cap hit until the end of the 2014-15 season.

If teams want to lower their cap number, the players they've already bought out should at least be an option.
