chances are, he'll be the only one bought out if cap space is needed. at 4Mil Kaberle just has to keep producing offensively like he did with us to have trade value, Markov is either on IR or one of our top 3 D like someone else mentionned, and at 3 Mil there's no point in buying out Bourque as his replacement would cost the same or close so there would be no space saved.

But, lets say you manage to trade Kaberle or another 4 / 5 mil guy, you have saved money, you may not need to buyout Gomez and his huge cap hit for ONE year.
