Like I said in another thread cap hit will be a huge factor in who stays and who goes. Calder makes $2.7 million. If the Kings trade/waive him there is no combination of current players that the Kings could use to stay above the salary floor. If Armstrong is traded/waived the Kings
stay above the floor.....but they would have to keep Hickey up to replace Derek's cap hit.
