Ok I know this isnt going to happen, its only hypothetical. BUT .... what if a team decides to buy out a player that is only responsible for half his contract. Could the Rangers somehow buyout their portion of Jagrs contract and still leave the caps on the hook for their share when he becomes a UFA. Would the Caps be free of their portion of Jagrs contract if the Rangers buy him out? Would the Rangers be allowed to buy him out? Just wondering what the rules would be for a situation like this. Im very curious!
