If anyone it would be Carter. Not because of performance but just because of the length of contract. He won't be worth the cap hit in his mid 30's.
That being said.........nobody.
Why buyout guys that are still productive and only have one year left on their contracts? Deano re-signed Mithcell for two more years. Scuds has one more year and is still productive and is a great mentor for Voynov. Penner we have for one more year. Let's see how he does. Carter and Richards aren't going anywhere anytime soon and are great together. In 5 years maybe one or both of these guys are traded because some team is desperate, who knows? But we couldn't have won the Cup without them and they help give us a shot at another one. Gange is now healthy and should be more productive this year. He had success with Carter and Richards and also played with Williams in Philly. No need to trade away depth when we have unproven prospects outside of King and Nolan. The depth that the team has will allow for the prospects that should eventually make an impact to properly develop and make the organization stronger for the long term. DL usually makes good choices with the draft picks he has. I expect this group to be a perennial contender for many years.

The whole point of the buyout is to allow teams to get away from their lomg term mistake. For example, The Islanders would be able to get away from the Rick Dipietio contract that has him signed for another 9 years.
Carter is great right now. He won't be bought out. But if you had to make a choice, Carter's contrat probably has the most downside in terms of cap hit. He is 27 years old now and is signed for another 9 seasons with a cap hit of 5.272 million.
