How does the buyout work? Do you pay the cap hit to the player or just their salary?

Compliance buyouts are cash, no cap hit.

Similarly, I'd explore the trade market this year too in case there's a small market team that is in a position to buy out a player but doesn't want to pay for it. "Hey, I'll give you Kuhnhackl and a 4th, and you make this guy's salary our problem" and then he either works for us or we just buy him out...it's almost like a sneak preview, except it costs money in real dollars to execute if we're wrong...but since it won't count against the cap, it doesn't effect me haha...not my wallet...


Good point. Considering there have been many instances when a player performs better in a new system for a new team, that player may very well end up being worth every penny. Now that the risk would be lower, the reward could potentially be greater.
