In reality though, it helps us get better value now, and if he performs well through his final year of $6.7m salary, the buyout would be PEANUTS on the cap, especially if the league revenues grow like they did pre-2012 lockout.

What buyout? If he's no longer a Canuck at that point, how can he be bought out?

I guess I am not fully understanding the full implications of the PA proposed CBR formula.
