Compliance buyout makes sense for 3 reasons
* Islanders payroll is going to shoot up as rookies slowly start getting paid - should take care of the floor
* Islanders want to move to a new location and keep the ceiling option open
* most importantly - you don't know how much cap you need over the next 16 years. 2 or 4 years- sure use the cap hit to your advantage but 16 years is a long time to commit yourself.
