It depends on what the cap hit is---not the actual salary.
Briere is a good example. His cap hit is $6M+ but his actual salary is around $2-3M the next 2 years.
The buy out formula is the same....it s just amatter of it showing on the cap or not....
a player making $3M with 2 yrs left who is bought out it would be a $1M per year for 4 years hitting the cap.
If teams have them they will use them.
What I wonder---are these cap buyouts tradeable?
