Which is why Ii don't understand these unnecessary salary dumps. Gill? Why? There's no prospects he's taking ice time from, and the return was nothing for a guy signed reasonably for another year.
It's the same with Tucker. Freeing up a tiny bit of cap room to sign more useless UFAs? Awesome.
(Note: I feel the same way about the theory of buying Dandenault out as well. Just let him play the final year of his contract)
