That is probably what they are hoping for, so that they will not have his cap on their books anymore (it'll be on someone else's). If he clears though, they would have to try to eat half his salary and deal him, as that would save them more than assigning him to the AHL or buying him out (which I'm not sure they can even do since he's a FA at year's end).
I could see the Isles picking him up to play defense.
Ooph, that hit was about as objectively illegal as it gets. Are you denying that he left the ice and launched into someone's head? Or are you denying that such an act is illegal? Really confused how someone could argue it.
The former. I'd be glad to show you the frame by frame, too. Just not in this thread. Feel free to bump the suspension thread in the Coyotes.forum. I'd be happy to pick this up there.
Does Toronto save any money if they buyout T.Connelly? (Do they pay 100% of the salary)
I have also seen alot of people here suggest buyouts on BIG contracts (Bryz and Luongo)
Would the team have to pay 66% and have that as a cap hit (33% per year) for the next ~15 years?
I am confused about the current system, or the "specialty" case for the cap going down etc.
Does anyone have a good handle on this?
If a player is bought out before this season, he gets 100% of this year's salary and 2/3rs or 1/3 of other year's, depending on their age. They would count against the cap this year, but for the same hit as if they are in the minors. They won't count against the cap in any other year.

If they wanted MacKinnon they'd play Tim Connolly 24 minutes a night. Dude racks up minuses like it's his job.
Finally someone sees the light. If we wanted a top 5 pick, we would have kept Lombardi and Connolly, as they were both very useless last year. Frattin was better than both in his time with the Leafs, and Kadri has been better than both during camp.
I just want to say congratulations to the Leafs, they are really starting to move in the right direction even if they don't do any better in the standings this year at least we know they are going to be building for the future by letting the kids play.
I always found that to be an exciting point in a team's progress.
