Incidentally, it's only $24M to buy out Dipetro. And remember, that's not a lump sum. It's $1.5M a year for 16 years.

The Leafs will have until July 4th to use one of the compliance buyouts on Komi. If they buyout out Komi, it will be with a compliance buyout imo.

How long are compliance buyouts good for? A year?

I'm pretty sure it's two compliance buyouts that can be used in the next two years.

Komi. not a good use of a buyout.

He has one year left and I think his salary drops,he could play 7th dman if need be or he could be cap lifting fodder for some teams,he certainly would be worth a late pick at deadline. If buyouts are worth money to some teams(NYI) why use one like this?

The most likely is Grabo.,especially if Bozak resigns at $3.5M.

Who else are we gonna use it on? Grabovski maybe, but he will likely be given another year to redeem himself.

The NHL has put the kibosh on anything like the Lecavalier deal that was rumored...

Nonis is waiting until after the draft to use it. He will likely talk to teams about getting something for him.

If not, he will be gone.

Nonis (by the sounds of it) wants to make some big moves, and that 4.5 is essential.

This makes you wonder if there was some truth to the Vinny to toronto rumours which prompted the NHL to step in.

If that's the case, all I can say is "Thank you for actually looking at ALL POSSIBLE options Mr. Nonis!"

From Nonis' pressers yesterday, it really sounds like his plan is:

a) try and move our bad contracts (Liles, Grabbo, Komi) in a trade
b) try and see if he can get assets to make buying out someone elses problem worthwhile
c) see what additional assets he can get through trade (ie: Clarksons rights, etc)

and then:
d) see where he sits next week and decide what to do then based on what's left.

I for one applaud this approach!

I'm excited for this, there could be some interesting options for reclamation projects who aren't expected to do a helluva lot anymore (ie: Lupul when he first got here).

They're shopping his buyout for a much worse buyout (like Vinny/Dipi)

Otherwise it would have already been announced like some other teams have already done with their buyouts.

Thanks. Do you have a link to something about the NHL putting the kibosh on buyout manoeuvres? I would like to check that to figure out what is still possible.

I appreciate your help in this.

The difference being is that a team like Philly is already over the cap for next year and needs to sign more players ..

So their buyouts timing are based on need to get players like newly signed Mark Streit and soon Claude Giroux re-signed and comply with the cap.

Nonis isn't in the same position at present where he needs to make room prior to the entry draft, in order to make roster moves.

He can buyout Komisarek prior to July 5th UFA season.

You could be right, or this could be simply Nonis' modus operandi. Not showing his cards before he has to. Komi's cap space is not needed yet and there are still lots of balls in the air. He has until July 4th to pull the trigger on a Komi compliance buyout and regardless of whether the decision has or has not been made, there is no reason to announce it until the last moment. After all, being a GM can be a lot like being in a poker game.

Wow. Must be nice to know you're getting $1.5M a year for a long time without even having to play another game. Quite the severence package.

The quote I posted above was from Larry Brooks twitter. Found the actual story on the trade rumors board:
