Its easy to play armchair GM at your computer and demand that a popular player be given a very high contract this year.

But in the real world, if you want to create a contending hockey team, you have to work the numbers.
No it won't.

It's a compliance buyout. it doesn't count against the cap.

You might be misled and confused by Gomez's buyout which does count against our cap this season, but that's only because he wasn't supposed to be bought out until next summer, and then his cap hit won't count.

All the compliance buyouts WON'T count on the cap next year or any or any following years (depending on the length of the buyout).
