Calling Chipchura back further complicates this as the cap is calculated daily.
I doubt we are planning on sitting Higgins for 2 months to wait for the deal to go through.
More likely in my mind is that Higgins re-aggravated something and is not seen at the team practice today cause he is out to see a specialist on the problem.
How does it work? Even in two months, even at the deadline, it seems to me that Gaborik's salary would put us over the cap...still every analyst in the city discusses the trade as being possible. But I can't see mathematically how it could be done
