I wasn't able to find it either, and what I could find tended to have "free use compliance buyouts" attached to it.
The actual "3 million minimum salary" buyout thing is specifically from the accelerated buyouts, where the league and the NHLPA wanted to isolate who could use them this year to a few select instances. Nothing I can find implies that it carries over to the next two summers.
