The NHL and NHLPA ended up letting him be bought out immediately in order to have the chance to play elsewhere but I don't think the amnesty buyout rules have changed. If Booth is still hurt in July then I don't believe the Canucks are allowed to use one of their amensty buyouts on him. He still has 2 years left after this season at $4.25Million cap hit per and he has to be the leading candidates to be one of the two buyouts.
I pray he is better by July.
