My only deal with that theory is we do not need the cap space right now. We have plenty as is with Souray on the books (I think we have 8 million free and clear in space just looking at cap geek really quick).
We will probably not be in any kind of a cap space crunch until two Summers from now. At which time Souray will be off the books one way or the other.
So if the cap space really means nothing then that means Katz saves real money on the re-entry waivers option.
