It's not just about the start of next year though. The flexibilty could be useful going into 2014-2015. However, they would not have the opportunity to save his full cap unless they did the buyout during the amnesty period.
I think this is only an issue with a cap near $60M to start with. At $65M the Oilers probably don't buyout Horcoff even if there is no amnesty.
