Maybe somebody else on our roster. At any rate, we aren't looking at being stuck with any super-big super-long term contracts on underperformers anymore. I'd be more worried if my team had some questionable long-term mega deals to ponder the buyout implications for, like some other teams do.

Bonus cushion, $60M cap, two compliance buyouts, we would be very comfortable.
Maybe trade Plekanec instead...Galenchyuk be up next year for, Pacioretty be on his new deal by then and Subban will get big increase.

On buy out Markov? He is a piece of glass. Good player, but body is brittle. Players hardly hit him and he is gone for months.
