I can imagine that, if either the Rangers or Canadiens choose not to buy out either guy despite having this new clause tailor made for them, that they'll have the league, the PA, and fans lighting a fire under their arse about it.

Pressure put on them by the league almost guarantees that they get bought out.
What if they are claimed for half price leaving their former teams for the other half.
