So, as others reported, Gomez and Redden and any player for that matter can get an "accelerated compliance buyout" before Saturday's opener

Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie

Teams such as NYR and MTL would take full cap hit on those players this season. But no cap hit next season.

Nick Kypreos@RealKyper

With new agreement, 1st buyout window will start prior 2 season opener. 2nd one remains in summer. Cap hit stays 4 rest of this season only

Larry Brooks @NYP_Brooksie

Appears as if agreement reached as suggested here earlier.Compliance buyout can be used now on Redden with NYR taking 5.6M cap hit (1/2)...

Larry Brooks @NYP_Brooksie

2/2..NYR would take cap hit even if Redden signs with another team as UFA. This option will be available to all clubs (Mont/Gomez).

Larry Brooks @NYP_Brooksie

NYR must still waive Redden before compliance buyout. The $5.6M cap hit is same as would have been before agreement. Cap hit this yr only.

Just posted in the agreement and Gomez threads:

Interesting proposal to change the CBA slightly after NYR, NHL and NHLPA discussing Redden's situation, they may allow a buyout to be used early rather than sit a player. The cap hit they would have occurred (either in the NHL or AHL/Europe) until the summer buyout period will still apply.

Larry Brooks @NYP_Brooksie

NYR, NHL, NHLPA believed discussing scenario under which NYR could exercise compliant buyout on Redden now while retaining AHL cap hit.

NYR would retain cap hit of 5.6m even if Redden signs with NHL team. It's a possibility.

Makes sense, no point not letting those guys play this year. I wonder what kind of contract Gomez will get.

Whoa...

Would have rather risked 700k gambling on Redden. And wouldn't mind giving Gomez a shot if he were cheap enough.

This puts Philly firmly in the game for Luongo. Bryz can be bought out now instead of later....

I'm going to go out on a limb here, and suggest the possibility of Ballard being bought out this week.

Each team is still permitted only 2 compliance buyouts, either before Saturday or in summers of 2013 or 2014.

So ultimately, there's no actual benefit to team to do "accelerated compliance buyout" other than as favor to the player to seek work now.

Gomez is certainly a better option than Ebbett or Schroeder if you are only paying him league minimum :)

Yup. Buy out Bryz and trade a young star like Schenn+ for Luongo, while taking Bryzgalov's one year of cap hit to Vancouver. Would be an easy deal.

I just wonder if the price point would be good enough. Would he get more interest from somewhere like Phoenix, where they could play him more than just as an injury replacement.

They would need to dump salary as they don't get a cap break for Bryz if they buy him out now...

I don't think so myself. I think they'd have to look at his improved play at the end of last year and consider he could raise his value to get some kind of return in a trade if he continues that. Even if it's a low pick, I think there'd be interest.

I could just see Burke fuming at this news if he were still the Leaf's GM...

Connolly and Lombardi are both pending UFAs.

Komisarek only a year left...

The Leafs potential benefit is negligible... on the other hand... the possibilities surrounding other team's veteran goaltenders open up even more...

MG should put in calls to both Gomez and Redden. I think he will.

Sign them for under $1 million each. They would both be inclined to come to team like Canucks because they would have a chance at success and to put some numbers on the board. This will give them opportunity to sign better deal next summer, ala Rafi Torres.
