Hossa is really their best buyout option. He has an incredibly long contract, which has to scare their management. On top of that, if they don't buy him out they'll have no chance the vast majority of their UFAs or RFAs. Honestly, I don't even think they could hold on to Leddy if he was tendered a $3.2M contact.
They are eligible. It was only before the season that comp. buyouts applied only for players that made 3 mil or more. Now they are just like regular buyouts. Daly mentioned it some time ago, too.

They can easily keep Leddy under 3 mil. on bridge contract. Look at what Subban and Kulikov got etc.
