My point was that in order for Hossa to be bought out or have his contract terminated, he would have to be placed on unconditional waivers.

I thought this was just an hypothetical discussion or whether or not Hossa's contract is worth keeping around. Of course the media often discusses this stuff without a comprehensive understanding of the CBA which we still haven't seen completed.

If my understanding of the buyout process (unconditional waiver requirement), cap recapture, and buyout cap consequences is correct I don't see how Chicago considers buying Hossa out for a single second.

What am I missing that makes a Hossa buyout even a remote possibility in the next two offseasons (barring a drop in play worse than Cheechoo's )? Was there a change to the buyout requirements in the new CBA?
