The only way Montador isn't bought out is if, for some reason, a team wants to trade for him.. but, given his concussion history, that would likely scare away teams looking to get to the cap floor because it serves them no good to have Montador on LTIR.
I could be wrong, but teams don't HAVE to put players on LTIR, do they? Montador would serve a purpose, history or not in that scenario. Either he's healthy enough to play at a salary lower than his cap hit, or he's injured and still counts as a cap hit anyway.

I would think Frolik and Montador are attractive pieces for salary floor teams. Trade them for 6 or 7th round picks.
