Hossa isn't going anywhere unless he's still really injured when he gets back with the team. I think Olesz will be the only buyout on the roster since it's likely the final CBA won't allow a Redden or Olesz type to be buried in the AHL.

Montador will be paid less than the cap hit so he'll have a little value to some of the budgeted teams, same with Frolik.

It's possible that some of the markets will get hammered when play resumes and that could open up some opportunities for some bigger spenders to acquire some assets and a bad contract to buyout. Tough to speculate until we see all the rules attached to the buyouts. Hopefully the league and PA put plenty of safegaurds in to avoid some of the problems these buyouts could create.
