When did Sather try to trade Holik? I've yet to read or hear ANYTHING that says that an attempt to trade Holik was made. And it makes no difference how you try to rationalize Holik's contract. Broken down, his contract is $9m/per. THAT is the # that is going to count against any cap/luxury tax. And THAT is the # that will prevent any type of trade of him, no matter how you much you try to rearange the $$$.
