So, if you're allowed a one time amnesty buyout for your team, who do you think it might be(if anyone) and who would you look at for replacing them?

For the Canucks, Keith Ballard is the most likely choice; if he gets cut then I would like to see a prospect like Connauton given a shot on the 3rd pairing, otherwise I wouldn't mind using a pick to acquire a defenseman from the Devils or Sabres to shore up our depth.
I really don't think the Canucks would use the buyout this year and save it if thats possible. No point with going with a rookie 3rd pairing especially if and when knowing the Canucks injury luck) someone goes down, a rookie moves into the top 4 or even both do and Alberts plus Sauve would be running the 3rd pairing.

The Canucks don't need the cap space so unless they have a deal in-place to take up the free cap space, theres no need to weaken the team now for un-used cap space.

I agree. But if Ballard doesn't show a marked improvement this season, then I could see us buying him out in the offseason.

I'd rather the Habs buy out both Gomez and Bourque but if was only one my choice would be Bourque because of length of contract.

You would waste our ONE TIME amnesty buyout of him instead of a longterm ****** contract?

I only think that would be the case if Bob Murray is looking for a new job, because if I was an owner and my GM signed a guy to a big money deal, then bought him out several months later before he played a game, I would be firing him immediately.

I disagree, respectfully of course. Wang bought out Yashin, he can buy out Ricky. Wang saves money by buying out Ricky, something like $12 million over the long term, just don't quote me on that, haven't checked capgeek in a while. Also, I think DP's insurance is up so he now has to pay him when he's injured. Everyone knows he's done, including Wang.

The optics would be bad if the Oilers bought out their captain, they aren't bumping up against the cap, and his contract expires in 2014 anyway. There isn't a need to buy anyone out, but if they did, my guess would be Ben Eager.

As a Sens fan ,i only put down Regin's name for the sake of freeing up a roster spot(but given his history of injuries, i suspect he will do that himself) Financially, no other player other then Chris Phillips could be expendable financially but he has a huge place in the community and doing so would be negative press. He currently is a 5-6th defenseman on the team and his salary is a bit high for his ice time.

However, i like this team as is, so my conclusion is no one.

Maybe Volchenkov, but that's only if the cap drops dramatically.
Was Volchenkov that bad during the season? Part of me wanted him on either the Habs or Nucks once upon a time. The guy hits like a damn train.

Wang has a heart or at least I think he does so he'll do the right thing and buyout Ricky. Of course he won't be happy that he can't use that cap hit anymore and circumvent the cap, but it's time to put the horse down. He's an Isle for life anyway.

Edmonton might do it.

If they did I'm pretty sure it would be Horcoff... but his NMC turns into a NTC as of the end of the 12/13 season. They could just waive him if they had cap issues.

The oilers don't have the balls to do the right thing and buy out that fraud. The owner and upper management would never do anuything to make themselves look stupid and admit they made a horrible move with that contract in the 1st place.

How embarrassing (and thus unlikely) would it be to sign a guy and buy him out before he ever plays a game for you?

I don't see a single player the Blues would use it on, not one bad contract on the team. Armstrong is the man.

Wtf on Souray, at least let him play a game before you buy him out lol.

The factors would of course be the longevity of his contract (5 seasons counting this one at a cap hit of $4,007,143) compared to Thomas' (1 year at $5,000,000) and the situation it puts the team in every offseason (have to account for that cap in their budget until the official start of the season enabling him to go on LTIR, which essentially uses the overage percentage allowed in the offseason). Plus Thomas isn't getting paid this season at all and will be a likely easy player to trade to a team in need of cap without spending a fortune (it would literally be $0.00 paid to the guy this year).

These two moves alone would land the Bruins at $58,298,333 - just below the proposed cap and at a 21 man roster.
In all honesty, I am not so sure that the Bruins will buy out anyone. There are a couple of reasons why I think that may be the case.

First, Savard's money is covered by insurance so Jacobs doesn't have to pay the money.

The Bruins are allowed to go over the cap with salary that replaces Savard's so it really lessens that loss of cap space.

On top of those, there is a rule against buying out injured players.

With Thomas the Bruins don't have to spend any money to pay him since he isn't showing up for work and will be suspended.

I also believe that the next CBA will remove Thomas' cap hit from the Bruins total, I think that since Jacobs is the chairman of the owners board of governers he will probably get them to remove the 35+ contract rule. It is just a hunch but it makes sense to me that he would be looking for that.
