According to Nick Kypreos, the two compliance buyouts that each team is entitled to can be used in the summers of 2013 and 2014 only.

Chris Johnston writes that the buyouts will cost the teams 2/3rds of what is remaining on the deal.
The Rangers are expected to use one of their buyouts on Wade Redden.
