I guess it's not set in stone yet as they're still negociating the new CBA. Last time this happened the teams were able to buy out players during a short term window before the start of the season. That was during the summer, so who knows if a January start will make a difference.
Still, in my head, anyways, it makes more sense to be able to buy the players out ASAP. If this isn't the case then no biggy. Gomez must know he doesn't have a future with this team and we've all but moved on from him. The only positive will be getting to the $60M cap, if that is the case, will be a lot easier with no Gomez and/or Kaberle.
I did find this article by Engels. I guess it doesn't really shed any light either:
