I think the reason they do it is so that teams and players can go into July 1 with a plan. The owners and players most likely want it that way. Think about it...let's say the Flyers want Brad Richards. If the Rangers have until camp to buy him out, that is going to screw up the Flyers and any other team interested. Likewise, the Rangers may not be able to get their replacement for Richards if he is still on the roster. Not to mention the fact that it would likely drive down the market for the player because by the time lineups are set...well...lineups are set.
