How do buyouts work under the new CBA? Under the last one his cap hit would last FOREVER. e.g. if he had 8 years left on the contract at the time of the buyout, the cap penalty would be spread out over 16 years? No? Doesn't make fiscal sense to do that.

When did the Islanders stop having the Yashin cap hit? Just the other year?

It doesn't make sense to buy out contracts that are that long term.

Unless the new CBA is different with buyouts.
