Not sure on Lecavalier. Buyouts still cost cash and I don't know how much the new owners have in Tampa. The Rags are loaded with a owner willing to spend. Redden has been tearing up the AHL. Part of the buyout equation will be how much cash the owner is willing to lay out. CBJ can unload Mason on a 1/3 regular buyout as he is not yet 26.
I suspect the Hawks tab Olesz, they have the cash.
Under current rules (and granted, it may change), they'd owe him 36 million over 16 years. All to save 19 million. Seems really silly to buy him out when he's essentially still a 1st line guy.
