Do we use the amnesty buyout(s)?

My guess is that the buyout guys will be of the Scott Gomez,Wade Redden type. In other words guys we don't want. Since clubs can spend to the 70 mill this year, there is no way they buyout their good players. Maybe after the season when clubs have to get to 64 mill for next year there will be a better selection. Although i think I remember JD saying he isn't a big fan of free agents.
Edit: Just read that amnesty buyouts are for AFTER this season and next so no immediate "help" available.
