Not sure about your question. The first post in this thread links to the actual [new] CBA.

They become an UFA, which means they cannot sign a new contract before the UFA signing period begins.

NHL Buyouts rules acc to CBA

I have not found the answer if NHL players can buyout their contracts (of course to pay the reminder of contract to club). Is it possible?

I know that the NHL club can buy out the contract (compliance buyout, ordinary buyout) per capgeek.com

Some interesting "etiquette" points from NHL PR via twitter. (timeouts, when trades can happen, etc.)

Here's my thinking:

Players with expiring contracts become UFAs on Friday. Players who are bought out are immediately out of a contract and hence are UFAs before then and can therefore be signed before Friday. Is this incorrect?

Ready to allow free agents to make visits to possible destinations Wednesday and Thursday for the first time in history, the NHL has laid down the law before the fun begins. They have informed teams that they can’t spend outrageous amounts of money by having owners send their private jets to give the players ultimate luxury before their visits. That means if Boston Bruins centre Nathan Horton, one of the top names on the market, wants to visit a place like Buffalo he’s got to fly commercial just like everybody else.

AIUI, they can talk to teams as soon as buyout is official, before Wed/Thurs "open discussion" period, but they'll have to wait until 7/5 to sign.

Not sure that doesnt mean he's only agreed to terms vs that the contract has actually been filed with the NHl.

CraigCustance 11:13pm via Web Agents are already being called tonight as the midnight UFA window is being utilized. Wasn't sure if teams would just wait until morning.

Still trying to figure out the exact CBA loophole that allowed Lecavalier and Briere as buy-oust to sign before today--presuming the contracts were filed with the league before today as the articles suggest happened.

I'm wondering if the Interview Period and RFA/UFA Signing Periods didn't apply to them because they were not on any Club roster as a pending UFA? If that's the case they could sign as early as July 1st when the new League Year started.*

* CBA requires that SPC's be signed for the current League Year, with some exceptions for things like Drafted players on Reserve List. Briere and Vinny shouldn't have met any of those exceptions though.

There is a second Buy-Out window (for regular "Ordinary Course" Buy-Outs, not Compliance Buy-Outs) for teams which had an arbitration elected, even if the case was settled before the arbitration hearing/award - a 48 hr window, beginning three days after the case was resolved - subject to certain restrictions.

Quote:

Exhibit 20, with a copy to the NHLPA and Central Registry as follows:

conclusion of the Stanley Cup Finals and ending at 5:00 p.m. New York time on June 30; and

(ii) For Clubs who have Club or Player elected Salary Arbitration filings
pursuant to Article 12, within the forty-eight (48) hour period beginning on the third day
following the later of: (i) the Club's receipt of its last salary arbitration award; or (ii) settlement
of its last case
(provided such award was received or such settlement occurred prior to 7:00 p.m.
New York time; awards or settlements that occurred or were received at or after 7:00 p.m. New
York time will be deemed to have occurred or received the following business day for purposes
of this provision).
There was a common misconception under the old (and now new) CBA that a team was required to have two or more arbitration cases in order to use the second window. That is not correct. The restriction was that if a team had only one arbitration case AND that case was a team-elected arbitration in lieu of a QO (for players who earned >$1.5M, now $1.75M) then that team was not eligible to use the second window.

There were a couple of changes to these "Ordinary Course Buy-Outs Outside the Regular Period" under the new CBA.
- You can't have acquired the player since the last Trade Deadline.
- The fixed $1M salary threshold was increased to $2.75M (indexed to increases in Average Plaayer Salary).

The dollar amount of $2,750,000 set

$2,750,000 stated in Section 11.18, shall be increased by ten (10) percent to $3,025,000.

FWIW, of the 21 players who filed for arbitration this summer, every single player negotiated a deal before the hearing.

kdb209, you said "That's not the case" when referring to teams need to have two arbitration hearings for the second buyout window, but you posted the CBA article that says:

However, in the event that a Club has only one salary arbitration
hearing pursuant to Section 12.3(a) in a given League Year, such Club shall not be entitled to
exercise such an Ordinary Course Buy-Out outside the regular period.

I don't understand.

Appreciate the clarification about when a team is required to have 2 not just 1 arb. to be able to proceed with a buyout now because I had planned to look up and review to see what the situation was. Saved me some time As to the other details, I had made note of the $ amount change and the trade deadline reserve list rule when I skimmed the new CBA, but again appreciate the isolation here.
