and will there be a different window for regular buyouts that will still count against the cap hit.

I could definitely see Poile trolling for a somewhat skilled player who isnt living up to a monster contract elsewhere but who would maybe have a chance to play on a higher line or d pair than they are right now.

Starting the latter of June 15 or 48 hours after the final Stanley Cup Final

While the compliance buyout will not count toward the salary cap next year player will be paid 1/3 or 2/3 of the contract amount according to there age. Additionally a player may not be bought out and later resigned by that team. The example give was Philly and Briere he could be bought out but they could not resign him at a lower salary thus only lowering there cap but the player making the same amount of money.
