I would be shocked if the NHL-NHLPA allowed both teams to use their compliance buy-outs early. What's stopping Ed Snider from complaining and asking to use one of his buy-outs on Bryzgalov? What about NYI and DiPietro? There are plenty of examples of teams that probably wouldn't mind using that buy-out early, but will end up having to wait until the summer because that's what was agreed upon.
Exactly. I'm sure plenty of teams would like this options even though they are playing their guys and risking injury. Again this may or may not include us, but need a level playing field. Will be interesting to see how this gets handled.
