That's not the reason he won't get bought out.

If I were Stan and Rocky told me I have unlimited $$, I'd play Hossa this season, try to find anyone who really really wants to pay out less $$ than the cap floor and unload that contract. If that doesn't happen, I buy him out this summer.

The guy is not going to be playing when he is in his 40's and has already earned 95% of his contract. The last 5 years of that deal could be very crippling for the team over that period of time.

But it won't happen because Rocky won't spend $30+m to buy out a player and then reinvest that money in another player.
