I thought this discussion deserves it's own topic. Which players will get bought out if  buying out a players contract is a provision in the next CBA?

 

I'll start with what I think is an obvious one:

 

Luongo (Vancouver)

 

_

 

Well documented that Luongo is willing to leave Vancouver and that they are also willing to part with him.

 

 


Tim Thomas - Patriot and generally awesome human being.

Doesn't Dipietro still have something like 7 or 8 years left on his contract? 

 

The islanders could finally get out of yet another awful deal they made. 

 

The funny part is they'll still be paying for the Yashin buyout through 2015.

Franzen on our side?

I could see Holland not buying anyone out, but I'd hope it would be Franzen.

Maybe 4/5th now, with how lazy he plays. But for 10 more years (or whatever it is)? No thanks.

I can see the "******* All-Star" being bought out, along with Seto....isn't it ironic? :lol:

 

I am also willing to bet Tim Thomas gets bought out as well...They'd still be over the cap, but maybe with his concussion issues Marc Savard can also be bought out of Boston.

 

Luongo is a good candidate along with Edler...

 

This could be the year that Iginla leaves Calgary...or maybe just J. Bo. I can see them buying out Hudler too (just as long as he does NOT return to Detroit!)

 

In Philly it may be a given that Pronger gets bought out, they'd still have to drop about $2M, but they could shave that pretty easily...

 

I think San Jose finally says goodbye to Marleau

 

Chicago will dump Hossa which will pave his way back to Detroit!

 

I believe Lieno gets the Heevho out of Buffalo!

 

Say goodbye to 1 goal Gomez in Montreal!

 

Hamrlik and Wolski could be done in Washington!

 

Toronto is a hard one, it all depends what the pick up Luongo for....

 

I could see Brewer, Salo or Ohlund out of Tampa

 

All that young talent in Edmonton, could Smyth be done?

 

Penner or Mitchell may be sent packing in LA LA Land...

 

In the Motor City, such a pity, but because of nagging injuries, Eaves will bid adieu and just to clear some more space, Emmerton and Kindl, for a possilble pick up or two...Could big Bert be done?

 

Last team over the $60M cap, but not by much, I can see Pittsburgh setting free, Pasqal DuPuis...

I bit my tongue on Franzen just so I wouldn't get flamed because of my well known hatred for that puke...Buy out Eaves, Franzen, Emmy and Kindl...Pick up Hossa and Mitchell



Question is, will Holland be man enough to cowboy up and admit his mistake by buying out Franzine and picking up Hossa? If he has ANY integrity, he will!

Money on the board: $30.00 plus immunity.

 

Franzen = 0.50 PPG

I just had a question regarding guys like Pronger, and Savard because I can't remember how it works at the moment.  

 

Since these guys are out with concussions aren't they on the long term injured reserve and don't count against the cap? 

 

 

Penner really redeemed himself in the playoffs for LA but has not earned his contract otherwise, so it'll be interesting to see what they do with him.  And Mitchell was probably their best D-man in the playoffs. 

 

Honestly Penner only has one more year on his deal so I'd be surprised if the Kings did anything with either of those two.  I'd think they'd just let them play out their contracts. 

 

Though if they wanted to wiggle out of their Richards or Carter deals, this would be the time. That seems unlikely though too.  Maybe Carter.

At the moment, the NHL is only proposing allowing 2 buyouts penalty free.  So the Wings could (theoretically) buy out Eaves, Franzen, Emmerton and Kindl, they would still be on the hook cap-wise for 2 of their salaries.

I'm very confident Franzen will not be bought out by the Red Wings. Nor should he, really. He's still the best goal scorer on a team lacking them.

Oh if only the irony of Minnesota having to buy out Suter or Parise would happen.

Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

For Detroit to buy out Franzen - I'm guessing it would only done in order to make some room for a guy like Hossa  - that is if Chicago is gonna make that move as well...

 

I def see Toronto buying out Komisarek, and quite possibly Bouwmeester in Calgary.

 

For the right cap price I wouldn't mind seeing Bouwmeester in a Red Wings jersey.

Can someone please explain how these buyouts would work on a timeline basis?

 

Say a deal was signed in 8 days. Does this mean:

 

- buyouts happen right away?

- no bought out players can be picked up by a new team until that team has reached cap compliance (ie- bought out their 2 players)?

- when do these transactions happen?

 

Basically, last time the new CBA allowed buyouts in 06, teams had plenty of time to do this, and sign new players. This time, it would be approx. one week between the signing of a new CBA, and puck drop.

Nothing is set in stone just yet.

 

I get the impression these buyouts could take place within the next few weeks (that is if there's a season), or later on in September for the 2013/2014 NHL season when the cap is said to drop by several million, or more.

 

EDIT - what I'm getting at is the GMs have the choice of when to use the buyouts - either now, or later, or 1 now, and 1 later....Clear as mud?

They also lost Chara and a pick that ended up being Spezza in return for useless Yashin. He was a disaster for that organization.

Franzens contract has a lot of cash still left on it = around 25 mil. It will be hard to buy that thing out.

Boston: Savard & Thomas
Rangers: Redden

Vancouver: Luongo & Ballard

Montreal: Gomez

Philly: Pronger & Bryzgalov

Chicago: Hossa

Los Angeles: Carter

Tampa Bay: Lecavalier

Would like to see wings go after Hossa, Ehrhoff, and Horcoff (good friends with helmer) if those buyouts happen

Filppula - Zetterberg - Hossa

Yes, please. Our top-six would go from aging and mediocre to aging but very talented with Hossa back.

Some of these suggestions are clear indications that a LOT of posters here live in make believe world... No team eats a MASSIVE amount of money, JUST to get under the cap, wastes their buyout on a guy who has an expiring contact before the cap goes down, or a guy that has a modest contract... the only obvious ones are Gomez, Thomas or DiPietro (if he were on a normal team, but it's the NYI, so they'll probably give him a bonus)

Honorable mention to Leino, Redden, Jagr...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Here


Holland is a damn good GM. period.
