Are you 100% sure they get it off the cap?

When a player is bought out, the team still takes a cap hit for the player over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract.

Thats what capgeek says for the new CBA rule. If you dont take any cap hit bryzgalov is gone and so is briere without even a second thought.
