Well the prospects--McIlrath, Miller, Fast et al--don't count against the cap, so there'd be no logical reason to buy them out. Guys like Newbury will almost assuredly be below the threshold for having their salary count against the NHL cap as well, so they're probably safe.
Guys like Rupp, Stralman and Asham might be candidates. If there's a cap at $60M for 2014 then someone would have to go, and more than one if they want to keep Gaborik.
I think they settle on a number closer to $62M or $63M for 2014.
It's just pain.
