    yes, all Hurricanes reporters (and, I DO follow them all!!) are reporting that he will be bought out.

    Kings have $13M in cap space with only minor contracts to sign
    A 1st rnd pick is better use than anything else Blake will do
    Kubrick
    The Kings roster is like a late stage game of Tetris. What they really need is a long skinny piece but all we keep getting are Kyle Clifford and Nate Thompson shaped blocks.

    Doesn't a buyout spread the cap hit over a few years? Possibly why Kings and others didn't want to deal with this.

    Yeah, but why buy him out? He wants to play in California. Even if he has a rebound year, the Kings will still be an early draft pick team next year. Take the draft picks and let him play one year. If I?m right, it?s the last year of his contract anyway. And if he does well next year (he probably won?t) you can flip him to a contender at the trade deadline.

    One would hope the buyout of Phaneuf freed up space to take on a dead money contract like Marleau. I guess it wasn't part of "The Plan".

    Buyout is one year at full salary because Marleau is in the over-35 category.
