Not if they buy him out during the amnesty period

Let's make a hypothetical scenario

Boston Trades Seguin to the Islanders for Dipietro

Islanders sign Seguin to a 6 year 36M dollar deal

Islanders trade Seguin back to Boston paying 3M a year of his deal

Boston buys out Dipietro during the amnesty period

Basically for Boston Seguin only counts towards 3M of their cap in this scenario, for the Islanders they save 6M having Boston buy out Dipietro

All that being said if you the GM of Boston you better have alot of faith the Islanders don't pull a fast one(and you probably use a lesser player(s) then Seguin)
