So when someone waives a $850,000 player to the AHL because they are $350,000 over the cap, and call up a $500,000 player is that circumventing the cap?
Chicago is sending a $5,625,000 player to the minors and replacing him with a better goalie that costs only $800,000. I see no difference in the two. I could careless what the player makes, if he isn't deserving of an NHL roster spot, then he should be sent to the minors.
As far as counting it against the cap, why should the team suffer because the really good player they signed all of the sudden became garbage?
