Posted this in the Avs board as it relates to the Avs directly, but indirectly.. A question.... http://www.denverpost.com/avalanche/ci_4003935 "because any player who is 35 or older when his contract is bought out has his full salary count against the salary cap. Turgeon and Brisebois are older than 35, and May will be 35 in November. " As per Avs GM FG. So... if I read this right.. their salary would count 100% towards the cap this year even if they were bought out at less than their actuall contract amounts? ??? If true..... What the Hell did Dallas just do with Guerin? Or is this Avs managment ****ing up again? I thought that the cap hit was based on the buyout ratio.
