Next big compliance buyouts:

Luongo.
Hossa.
Brad Richards.


Although... Let's say that my devious mind is only half as devious as some of the GMs/Owners that gave out those albatross contracts.

The Compliance Buyouts technically come out of the players share.
You cannot CB a player and then re-sign them.

To screw the NHLPA a bit... Let's talk collusion between two general managers and the players.

GMs colluding; Chuck Fletcher and Stan Bowman.
Players in on it; Marian Hossa and Zach Parise

Chuck Fletcher uses one of his CBs on Parise.
Bowman uses one of his CBs on Hossa.
GMCF signs Hossa to a 7 year, two million AAV contract.
GMSB signs Zach Parise to a 7 year, two million AAV contract.

"We have a trade to announce; The Chicago Blackhawks trade Zach Parise to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Marian Hossa."
