Predict the buyouts

So, tweeter says there will be 2 "cap free" buyouts per team over the next two seasons.

So, wich player will be bought out by your team?

In habsland, it's pretty safe to guess it'll be Scott Gomez

No one in Toronto. Weve got 6m in room now. Now if Burke acquires a couple big names and the departing salaries dont cover the difference then Connolly or Komisarek.

The obvious Wade Redden for the Rangers..........the guy was a trooper and went down to the AHL and did a good job helping develop kids like McDonaugh........hope he can land an NHL deal as a 3rd pair Dman.

After that I don't think anyone else this yr but next yr they will have to look at buying out Mike Rupp just because you can't pay a 4th liner 1.5 million a yr. This yr though they have the cap space and Rupp is a good tough guy to have around

Komisarek HAS to be gone on a buyout next yr though. I do understand keeping him around if they have plenty of cap space now but that was a BAD signing. As for Connoly is he not a UFA next yr? If so they give him a chance this yr for sure agreed

Depending on how Souray plays in his first year, he's the only candidate I see in Anaheim.

ottawa - no point. Only high paid players are spezza, karlsson, gonchar (UFA), michalek, and alfie (UFA).

even if methot busts in ottawa, he's only 3M, so probably not.

Can't see anyone from Detroit being bought out. Maybe Cleary? He's a UFA after this season though. I'd guess it will depend on how much pressure Babcock can put on Holland to give him the kids in GR.

What about Bryzgalov? He earns way to much for way to long. But the flyers still need him in the net

If the buyouts can be used in either the 2013 or 2014 offseason then this changes things. A cap of $64.3M gives teams a lot more breathing room. The crunch might actually come in the 2014-2015 season.

Will we see trade and buyouts?

IE big market teams take on a contract + assets and buys them out?

I'm wondering about this as well.

BTW - did anyone catch when the buyouts happen? Is there a buyout period prior to the beginning of this season (IE - next week or something like that)?

He doesnt have to go anywhere. Were not pressed against the cap this season and next season we have TONS of room.

Burke, as of this summer, still liked Komisarek for his locker room values. And we can always hope playing under a defensive oriented system will make him a dcent player again.

As for Connolly, he only goes if we acquire a lot of salary before this season and the outgoing salary doesnt cover the differance. Like 12-13m (if burke gets a goalie and first line C, for instance). Unlikely but I think hes the one with the short straw in that circumstance.

Do we know if buried cap hits count against the cap?

I think the Oilers will only buyout one player.

Minnesota Wild will likely have no one.

The only real possibilities would be someone like Darroll Powe or Torrey Mitchell and they'll obviously have this season to prove they can stick around. Not to mention they could be moved in a very minor trade.

From tsn.ca live blog:

Each team will be allowed two amnesty buyouts that can be used to terminate contracts after this season and next season. The buyouts will count against the players' overall share in revenues, but not the team's salary cap.

If they do (personally I hope they will), it would be starting next season, so plenty of time to buy out Redden.

If a team has a buyout on the books already, can they have that scratched off their cap?

ie Bobby Butler for the Senators.
2012/13 50k
2013/14 200k

Not that it is going to hurt the Sens, just curious.

Many candidates with habs

Gomez
Bourque
Kaberle

And maybe Prust if he craps the bed in his first season.

Weird - you'd think teams would want at least one buyout right off the bat.
