I don't get why they wouldn't do an amnesty buyout, this is them limiting themselves to not having some sort of 2nd pairing D-man/top 6 forward for the next 16 years if they ever decide to spend. This move has especially peculiar timing with the rumors that Wang is thinking about selling the team with his lighthouse project dead in the water. If he gives DP the amnesty buyout he has a hope of making the Isles a slightly more attractive team for selling, though it's true that it's unlikely to be 24 mil more attractive. Still, this absolutely makes them a much less attractive team for any owner who wants to come in and spend and be competitive.
