Brian Leetch to Washington with his 5 million dollar deal.
Josef Boumedienne to Toronto with his contract.
So Leafs would be that much closer to the cap.
That is the vision of the owners.
Well I get that much of it. It still doesn't make sense though.
The NHL argues that the average salary is too high. Shuffling players from team to team isn't going to change that.
There'd still have to be some sort of grandfathering.
