If the new CBA allows for trading before you have to declare which player you are buying out this year, which I believe it does, all teams have more potential buyouts than you might think. They only need to find a dance partner to help out.

For instance, sharks fans concensus for a potential buyout is Adam Burish (3 more years at 1.85 cap hit). We are pretty happy now with all other contracts (now that we traded Zus and Murray, who did not need buying out because both are UFA). Sharks would gladly take on Kaberle, in the above scenario if Habs decided they needed Gionta gone too, if it was part of a larger deal that made spending 4+ million worth while.

Anyone need help with buying out bad contracts? Sharks, and maybe other deep pocket teams could use these buyouts like assets.
