Thinking this rule might help with trading. We were planning on having more compliance buy-outs soon anyways, but this is what I was thinking.
- Each team gets 1 compliance buy-out each offseason - Player getting bought out must have finished the season with the team buying him out. - Players signed in the past offseason, whether re-signed, UFA or RFA, cannot be bought out the following year, whether you acquired them via trade, waivers or signed the deal yourself.
We can still have that extra buy-out every 5 seasons.
