The NHL buyout window will open on September 25. This date was set following the conclusion of the Conference Final last night. The buyout window will run through October 8, which is the day before free agency begins.
Rumors swirled earlier this week that the Rangers are going to use a buyout on Henrik Lundqvist. While there are no true confirmations yet, there are legitimate arguments both for and against the buyout. All signs are pointing towards this buyout.
