That's why each team only has 2 of them, and they can only be used this upcoming summer, or next summer, and that is it. If you don't use 1 or both of them during either of those times, they go away.
Again, it's entirely separate from the regular buyout which you are thinking of.
You can check Capgeek's new FAQ section.
Has it been stated anywhere if NMCs and NTCs still are in effect? I've searched around and haven't found anything. I'm guessing "no" otherwise people wouldn't be discussing Briere or Bryz.
