I Doubt Leonsis would be thrilled, but if its what it takes to win maybe
It doesn't involve any current roster players either (well, not sure if RipDi is playing or not)
Wang has shown he's willing to buyout players: Yashin/Bates/Witt. I think Yashin had more $ on his contract then DiPietro does, when he was bought out. DiPietro's $1.5m per buyout is very doable.
No need to gut the prospect pool, of the isles top 3 prospects because of a $1.5m buyout.
Isles are headed to Brooklyn soon and a stronger lease. They'll continue add their top youngsters.
