So, as others reported, Gomez and Redden and any player for that matter can get an "accelerated compliance buyout" before Saturday's opener
Teams such as NYR and MTL would take full cap hit on those players this season. But no cap hit next season.
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
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)...
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).
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.
