Not only is the idea silly, it's also likely impossible. Just like in 2005, I expect rules will be put into place so that any compliance buyout is only to be used for players already on the team. Maybe if a guy was traded and played the whole 12-13 season on a new team he'd be eligible, but I'd be shocked if guys could be traded for and bought out without putting in time with their new team.
