Wade Redden bought out (1/18: Signs with STL [$1M])

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
So, as others reported, Gomez and Redden and any player for that matter can get an "accelerated compliance buyout" before Saturday's opener

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Teams such as NYR and MTL would take full cap hit on those players this season. But no cap hit next season.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Each team is still permitted only 2 compliance buyouts, either before Saturday or in summers of 2013 or 2014.
Katie Strang ‏@KatieStrangESPN
NHL and NHLPA have reached agreement on accelerated compliance buyouts. Will carry full cap charge for 2013 season.

Katie Strang ‏@KatieStrangESPN
The hit will then come off the salary cap beginning this summer and the buyout will then revert to 2/3 spread out for remaining years

Katie Strang ‏@KatieStrangESPN
#NYR So in Redden's case, team pays him 100% of salary owed this year. Full cap hit minus $ saved assigning him to AHL
Larry Brooks ‏@NYP_Brooksie
Benefit is that teams dont have worry about injury preventing post-season buyout if PA had filed/won grievance re players being sent home.
We get to use the amnesty buyout on Redden now, rather than after the season. Still have one amnesty buyout left, which apparently can be used either after this season or after next season.

Adios, Wade.


It's just pain.
