There are plenty available in free agency this year. Might as well take a chance on them.

Is it in the roster menu? I don't see the button for it in the client (unless you mean send to waiver).

Actually I think I will explain the process of releasing players because this IS NOT a way to drop players you don't want

I may impose real life rules for releasing players (ie: 10% percent cap penalty for players with contracts) for players without a contract there obviously will be no penalty

More on this tonight

How do buyouts work?

Teams are entitled to buy out player contracts for a portion of the remaining value of the contract — paid over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract. Following are the buyout amounts:

  • Younger than age 26 at the time of buyout, 1/3 the remaining value

  • Age 26 or older at the time of the buyout, 2/3 the remaining value

The remainder of this explanation assumes the player was not 35 or older when he signed his contract (in which case a buyout saves the team financially but does not reduce the player's cap hit).

When a player is bought out, the team still takes a cap hit for the player over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract. The amount of the cap hit (by year) is determined as follows:

  1. Take the actual salary due for each remaining year

  2. Take the Averaged Player Salary (cap hit) for the current contract

  3. Calculate the buyout amount (as described above)

  4. Spread the buy-out amount evenly over twice the remaining years of the contract

  5. Take the number in No. 1 and subtract the number in No. 4. This is the "buyout savings."

  6. Take the cap hit from No. 2 and subtract the buyout savings from No. 5.

This calculation is done for each year, meaning the buyout cap hit is not necessarily the same for all years. It can even be negative, meaning a team can receive a credit.

Example:

James Wisniewski is 29 years old on the buyout date of June 15, 2013, setting the buyout ratio at 2/3 and the total buyout cost at $12,666,667 spread over 8 years. His contract was originally valued at $33,000,000 beginning in 2011 and ending in 2017, with $19,000,000 remaining from the buyout year forward. The following is a season-by-season breakdown of the buyout. A negative buyout cap hit indicates a credit.

Well I was thinking more in terms releasing AHLers, not NHLers.

Is the Johnny Canuck in your user pic one of the CDC-user made ones from a while ago? It's so nice.

Looking to move Nicolas Deschamps, Connor Brown, Andrew Crescenzi, Ryan Rupert, MA Bourdon for cheap. Good for teams still needing to fill out their AHL rosters.

I was trying to fiddle around with buyouts in STHS and there is no easy way to do it since we use a hard cap

The only way I could do it is

Ex: Steven Stamkos makes $7.5M per year

I could buy him out at 0% of his contract value that way he disappears from the team and I create a player named Released at $3.75M so that the 50% caphit is still with the team

And I'm assuming that player would have blank attributes? Could you make it so teams that don't have access to the client to edit their lines won't have to worry about the computer placing that player in their lineup?
