Wings-Samuelson for sure
Can the Rangers get rid of Redden? He is with their minor league team and I don't think he counts against their cap, but $6.5M is a lot for a minor league d-man.
Bos-Savard for sure
Buff-Leino and maybe Erhoff
I'm sure there are others.

Oilers buyout Shawn Horcoff ( I hate him as a person and player ) and I am not sure on the 2ndCasey

For the Oilers I would buyout
Horcoff- he is a 3rd line center at best
Hemsky- he hasn't played a full season in his career and is not worth 5 million per year (maybe worth half that)PC's

As a Flames fan, I would like it to be Wideman since that's a horrendous contract but since it was just signed for 5 years that won't happen. But someone likely has to be dropped next summer due to Feaster's previous disregard to the cap/cap space.
Stajan seems possible, although he's an effective player when properly utilize (ie. not on the 4th line). Sarich will probably be obsolete by next summer though, so Feaster will probably undue that re-signing as there should be a suitable youngster to take his place by then.PC: ITG/The Cup/Masterpieces/Canada Theoren Fleury, Colin Wilson YGs/RCs, Mike Murphy (BTP + YG excl.), 08/09 BD GUJ K.

Oilers would jump immediately for any of this. They've unsuccessfully tried to get rid of Horcoff and Hemsky even by paying half their salary for other to take them....... No Takers.
Guys like Hemsky will have to move back to Europe as he won't be signed by anyone in the NHL.

The buyouts are for next summer, and even the summer after that.... will give the Oilers some time to figure it out.
They may have to buy someone out, out of necessity, but considering that Hemsky JUST SIGNED this contract, there is no way in the world they're buying him out. Any hypothetical cap troubles the Oilers may run into with their team..... it will be after that deal expires.
Horcoff is another interesting one. Based on everything I've read - he's great friends with Katz (the owner). Lives on the same street, in fact. Becuase of that relationship.... I'd be surprised if he was bought out..... but they may have to do it (eventually) for the cap space.
After this season though, Horcoff's actual salary becomes much cheaper than his cap hit. Trading him, instead of buying him out, wouldn't be out of the question. He makes 4 million & 3 million over the last two years of the deal - flipping him to a team just trying to get to the floor...... he'd save them $4 million in real cash over the two year. (cap hit is 5.5 mil person).

Bruins, Savard can be put on LTIR with no cap hit...if they could buy out this year, definitely Thomas, paying the guy 5 mil to play golf isn't much help!
