NHL Buyouts: Post-Lockout Contract Warning

New, comments

I'm sorry, but the player you referenced signed his contract after the end of the 2012 NHL Lockout. Somebody linked you here to help you learn so they don't have to explain it again.

That means this player is ineligible for a compliance buyout. Please see the CBA's Exhibit 16 Issue 53 if you don't believe me.

The team may still exercise an ordinary-course buyout during the buyout period (details here), but there will be salary cap considerations. For how this will affect the team, please use Capgeek.com's Buyout Calculator.

Thank you.
