But since Ducks are not salary-cap team atleast in 2014-2015 season (I predict the cap will be back to levels higher than Ducks budget quite soon), I'm not sure if Ducks want to eat 2/3rds of Souray's actual salary by buying him out.
I was going to say this. Compliance buyouts are meaningless to a budget team like the Ducks. Their only advantage is not counting against the cap which never mattered to us. If we buyout anybody we then have to pay for a replacement, so we are paying two guys to do one job. Sounds like longshoremen work. :-)
That Souray contract will likely will become an albatross at some point.
