You will not see players traded who have 6+ yrs and $30M+ left on their contract dealt for the ability to be a buy out.
This comes out as $30M you are paying for a pick and prospect. that seems like a major overpayment.
It would be interesting to find out how much Crosby has been worth to the Pens, net. Or how much Yashin cost the Isles. Or any player for that matter. Could that affect the return? The projected net value of a prospect?
