    How many buyouts are you allowed?  How much of the buyout counts against the cap.  The Bruins might have to use one of them on Kelly.  They are now listed as the highest payroll team with the cap penalties from last season.  Boy oh boy I don't get a good feeling for the cap jail that this team is in.

    Street hockey is great for kids. It’s energetic, competitive, and skillful. And best of all it keeps them off the street.

    Each team is allowed just 2 amnesty buyouts. The buyout is a product of the lower than expected cap coming out of the lock out. Once you've used your 2 you're done. Montreal already used theirs as they bought out Gomez and Kaberle.

    The salary is gone as far as the cap is concerned but based on the players age the team has to pay either 1/3 or 2/3 of the salary. And I think the team gets to stretch that out over twice the length of what was left on the contract.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Isn't there a time frame in which to use the compliance buyouts?

    Use them or lose them this off-season.  They're a two-year get-out-of-jail card only.

    I can see them using it to buy out Kelly if he's healthy. I dont think they can buy a player out when he's not cleared to play though.

    I don't think Kelly gets bought out or needs to be. I think there will be takers for his services.

    "The Detroit Red Wings placed forward Jordin Tootoo on unconditional waivers Wednesday for the purpose of using a compliance buyout on his contract.

    Tootoo must clear waivers at noon ET on Thursday before his contract can be bought out. He has one year remaining on a three-year, $5.7 million contract he signed on July 1, 2012.

    The 31-year-old spent most of this past season with the Red Wings' American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, scoring six goals and finishing with 18 points in 51 games. He had no goals and one assist in 11 games with Detroit.

    Tootoo spent the first eight seasons of his NHL career with the Nashville Predators organization. He holds the Predators career record for penalty minutes with 725 in 486 games.

    It's the second of the two compliance buyouts the Red Wings are allowed under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. They used the first one last summer on defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo, who appeared in 25 games with the St. Louis Blues in 2013-14.

    Detroit general manager Ken Holland also confirmed to the Macomb Daily that forwards Todd Bertuzzi and Mikael Samuelsson won't be back next season. Bertuzzi, 39, had nine goals, seven assists and was minus-17 in 59 games this season, his fifth with Detroit. Samuelsson, 37, had one goal and three assists in 31 games over the past two seasons in his second stint with the Red Wings, for whom he played from 2006-09."

     

    Start the Bertuzzi to Boston thread.

    Re: The amnesty buyout period starts today: Buyout tracker

    Los Angeles Kings center Mike Richards will not receive a compliance buyout, Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told the Los Angeles Times on Friday. Richards has six seasons remaining on the 12-year, $69 million contract he signed in December 2007 as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers. Richards was traded to the Kings on June 23, 2011.

    Lombardi said after speaking with Richards during exit meetings after the Kings won the Stanley Cup that he trusts Richards will make the necessary changes in his approach to the game that will allow him to have a better season in 2014-15.

    Richards is a four-time 20-goal scorer who had 11 goals and 41 points in 82 games in 2013-14 and spent most of the second half of the season centering the Kings' fourth line. He had three goals and seven assists in 26 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

    "The biggest thing in the meeting with Michael -- the important thing -- is that he realized he's going to have to make some adjustments in his offseason training," Lombardi told the newspaper. "He's 29, in his prime. So it's not as though the drop-off should be related to age. But players need to realize when you start getting 27, 28, you can't train, can't prepare like you used to when you were 22 or 23."

    Lombardi said in addition to telling Richards what needed to change, he liked what he heard from Richards in the player's self-evaluation. "He was very candid," Lombardi said. "The most important thing is, he realized he wasn't anywhere near where he is capable of being. If he's telling you, 'Well, I was good,' then you've got a big problem. If he's not able to critique himself, then we're wasting our time.

    "But he freely admitted that it was nowhere near where he was capable, and the root is not age or injury. It starts with the understanding that I've got to prepare like a 28- or 29-year-old, not a 22-year-old."

     

    Looks like Mike Richards saved himself for another year.

    Richards:  OK, Mr. Lombardi....I sucked, ok? I get it! I need to stop banging everything with a pulse and cut down on the booze. Maybe only go out and get blooied 3-4 times a week rather than 6-7. No problemo. Now, if you can just point me in the direction of the gym.....We have one of those, don't we? I hope it's not upstairs...those things exhaust the hell out of me.

    This is the last opportunity to use the compliance buyout so it looks like he bought himself 6 years.
