And there will be a couple of them out there when teams start to dump salary to get under the cap.
What forward do you envision being available? No one's going to be dumping Ryan Kesler to get under the cap. No one's going to be dumping Claude Giroux. It's going to broken down players like David Booth, like Daniel Briere. The best "buyout" option might be Dany Heatley, honestly.
