That would obviously come into the equation with whatever trade was made.
My point was simply that having Avery on the 4th line making $1.9m wouldn't make any more of a difference, in terms of the Cap, than Boyle making $550k on the third line instead, as long as they're under. So why preclude that possibility if Avery is the better option for that spot than someone making less?
After training camp, you don't make lineup choices based on the Cap
Sure you do. If there's no trade market for certain players, and you're not willing to send them to the minors, it will certainly affect the rest of your lineup.
That last sentence is really very short-sighted.
