I agree but some of the buy outs could bring a bidding war for a player. And them some teams will have to make some hard decisions about trading a high cap guy or sheding off smaller pieces to get under the cap. As you look at the cap for each team look at how many players they have under contract some are going to forced to make pretty wild decisions. And some will be able to unload overpaid or underperformers Rick DePetro for the Islanders comes to mind.
