I didn't understand this part:
9:32AM: LeBrun says that the new offer allows teams to have one compliance buyout prior to the 2013-14 season. It doesn’t count against the cap but it does count against the players share.
What does that mean exactly?
I'm guessing that it likely has something to do with the Make Whole provision. Or, possibly, it could come out of the players share of revenue before the cap is determined.
Just some wild guesses though.
