Yah. You can do it, but it only makes sense if it's an amnesty buy out with Marleau. If we can buy him out with zero cap hit penalty and then re-sign him to a cheaper deal (he might make the same amount between buy out and new salary) where our cap hit is lower.

If the cap is lower they are going to add some kind of provision so the majority of the league is automatically compliant. Most likely some kind of percentage, or an amnesty situation. I can't imagine them telling teams to shave 5+ million off players they already have signed.
